Azura Benguerra Island


From the kooky thatched roofs and beachside bar, to the eco-chic hand-built villas and miles of sugary sand beach, Azura Benguerra Island truly embodies the charm of a Mozambique beach getaway. Nestled within a Marine National Park, we love that this retreat offers an economically friendly twist on beachside luxury.

This luxury lodge aims to give its guests an authentic African beach experience, with personalised, locally sourced furnishings and wonderful artwork. Widely known as an incredibly romantic oasis, Azura is perfect for a romantic bush to beach honeymoon.

There is a combination of villas to choose from. The three Beach Villas are smallest, featuring a beach sala, plunge pool and daybeds, whilst the three Luxury Beach Villas offer the same amenities with a more spacious set up. The two Royal Beach Villas feature a gorgeous infinity edge pool overlooking the beach, as well as their own lounge, Jacuzzi, and poolside pavilion.

The two-bedroom Villa Amizade is truly opulent, featuring dining and relaxing areas, a wine bar, a 10-meter pool, and the opportunity to hire a private chef at an extra cost. The Presidential Villa is the most luxurious of all though, with its own butler and chef, an infinity pool, three bedrooms, and even a treehouse.

The luxury doesn’t stop there – the innovative dining set-ups mean that you’ll enjoy a delicious meal in a totally different location every time, and the idyllic dhow sunset cruises, sand dune tours, horse riding trips and wines selected from the owner’s Chateau in the Loire Valley create the ultimate lavish experience.

We love the spa here, especially as all of the treatments are inspired and created with local ingredients and traditions. Be sure to try a unique Tribal Traditions massage – nothing is more relaxing than being poured with shea and olive butter and enjoying massage strokes mimicking the beating of African drums.
