Azura Benguerra is a one-of-a-kind property. Located on Benguerra Island, this is Mozambique's first 'eco' retreat. Built entirely by hand by the local community and operated in partnership with them, this boutique resort has just 19 luxurious villas, each with their own infinity pool and designed for both pampering and barefoot escapism. Two of these accommodate families or couples traveling together, offering the ultimate retreat.

Each villa has a Mozambican butler-host who will take care of every whim and desire, ensuring you have a romantic and memorable stay. From arranging breakfast at the water's edge to serving you a cocktail at sunset, they truly care about making you feel at home here.

There are many activities to enjoy both in land and out at sea with a few included in your stay such as a sunset dhow cruise and a Land Rover island drive. Kayaks and paddle boards are available for all guests as well as snorkeling equipment but all guided excursions and day trips are payable direct. Guests can snorkel, dive or fish the waters which are abundant with marine life. There are many magnificent reefs which provide a home to the turtles that nest on the island's outer shores. Watch the sunset whilst sailing on a traditional dhow, or cruise to deserted beaches to look for pansy shells. Gaze at the dolphins, who are regular visitors to the shallow shores, or track down humpback whales on their migration past the island (seasonal). On land, towering sand dunes give way to indigenous bush abundant with local flora and fauna, an interesting variety of birdlife, as well as the odd crocodile or two at the lakes. The island’s local people make for fascinating cultural encounters, and the starry night sky is quite magnificent to behold.

Guests tend to gather each evening in the funky Star Bar before the evening meal is served either in the open-fronted dining room or on the beach. Dining is very much part of your experience here, making the most of the freshest ingredients, accompanied by a superb selection of wine.
