Imagine an unspoiled island within a Marine National Park, deserted beaches of pure white sand that extend for miles, sparkling turquoise seas crisscrossed by local dhows plying their trade, sunny days and star-studded nights. This is the enchanting island escape you always imagined. Azura Benguerra, the first eco-friendly resort in Mozambique, was hand-built by the local community and is operated in partnership with it.
Just 20 villas are nestled along one of the last undiscovered stretches of beach in the world, with all the creature comforts you could wish for, sparkling private pools, Mozambican butler-hosts to look after your every need, fish and seafood fresh from the ocean, a fantastic range of activities and experiences, an African spa to relax in, all at a community-based project where the local islanders benefit as much as you. Azura Benguerra Island is paradise found.

Azura features a fabulous wine cellar for special wine tasting events and themed dinners, and even offer a selection of the owner’s wines, specially flown in from their Chateau in the Loire Valley, France.
Menus are based on what is fresh and available, with a focus on light meals, simple ingredients, and lots of fresh fish and seafood. It’s a simple understated affair. The chef will happily try to accommodate any personal requests that you may have.

SPA Azura African Spa signature treatments are based on local ingredients and traditions and offer a wonderfully relaxing and pampering experience. Try a ‘Butter me up’ wrap using a unique blend of African body butter and oils, including the highly prized Mongongo Nut Oil. Follow that up with a relaxing massage using the new beauty miracle, Marula Oil. Or try something different with Tribal Traditions massage, where olive and shea butter is poured all over the body, and massage strokes mimic the beating of African drums.
