Azura at Quilalea


Get away from the humdrum of everyday life and venture to Azura at Quilalea, a gorgeous hidden hideaway nestled on the beautiful Quilalea Private Island. Surrounded by the crystal-clear waters of the Quirimbas Archipelago, we love the laidback, castaway style here.

The four Kaskazi Villas are only steps away from the beach, with open-plan interiors and décor created with rustic wood, pebbles and rattan to create an island vibe. The villas feature a private deck with sun loungers, a butler-host service, and beautiful views of the ocean. Next are the four Kusi Villas, all secluded yet offering phenomenal views from their private deck and beach sala. The décor offers a gorgeous mix of beachside charm and African elegance, and also come with butler-host service.

Last but by no means least is the cliff-top Villa Quilalea, perfect for loved-up honeymooners. Nestled on its own private section of the island, this remote villa is wonderfully tranquil and romantic. The villa features an extended outdoor deck, an infinity plunge pool, access to the ocean from a cliff-top step ladder, and unforgettable candlelit dinners in the private dining area.

Venture away from your individual paradise and you’ll find that the hotel is host to a plethora of fantastic activities, all offering an insight into the chilled island lifestyle. Snorkel or dive in the pristine reefs, kayak through the luscious mangrove forest, or simply rest your legs with a good book in one of the shady hammocks. Intimate picnics add another touch of romance, and the African Spa is the perfect indulgence.

Journey here from July to November and you may be lucky enough to spot a humpback whale, or visit from November to April to see the nesting turtles. Friendly dolphin pods swim near the villas all year round.
