Azura's setting is just perfect! The sunsets are breathtaking, the ocean lapping at your feet lying on your day bed, cocktails at sunset, beach dinners, beach breakfast, excellent snorkeling! The food is delicious, healthy and caters to everyone's taste. Our hosts during our stay, Picardo and Musa, treated us like royalty and made sure the smallest need was taken care of. The rooms were cleaned twice daily, the spa was magnificent and the lodge offers so many activities which are all superb - island hopping, snorkeling, diving, dhow rides, horse riding, the Chili Beach Club (!!!), endless beaches for long walks, and your own private pool.

I visited Azura Retreats in September 2021 and stayed in Villa Amizade with Anderson & mino as my hosts . I've visited many places across the world and by far this was my best beach vacay.. the resorts attention to detail is like no other .. we also did the 2 mile reef snorkeling- the marine life that we experienced was phenomenal, we ended off at north point island for a beautiful picnic... Also thoroughly enjoyed the island drive. . Thoroughly enjoy the food 👌 especially the seafood and baked eggs for breakfast. I traveled with my 2 year old toddler which the resort made so easy..., my hosts were great in every regard Being South African, I was extremely proud of the fact that we as Africans have been blessed with a beautiful spaces and places and our hospitality is like no other ... Azura Bangeura is Authentic Barefoot Luxury at its best.

One of my best holidays, pristine beaches, excellent service, beautiful &well maintained facilities, lots of activities, restful, peaceful, idyllic. piece of paradise. Eco friendly, plastic free, very environmentally conscious, the snorkeling was a highlight with amazing sea life, and the crystal clear waters were warm and refreshing. As physical or restful a holiday as you’d like with something for everyone.

A 10 minute helicopter, or, 40 minute boat transfer takes you to this wonderful resort. Truly, our seven days could not have been better. Covid had next to nobody staying here, that suited us, it might not you if you need a vibe. The room we had, a double upgrade (thank you, very much!) had it’s own plunge pool and private dining area, all mod cons, and was very comfortable. For an all inclusive hotel the food was far better than we’ve experienced elsewhere, the sea food was magnificent and this chef knocked out perfect poached eggs every morning, without fail. Dining on the beach, everyday, was a treat which cannot be afforded if the hotel is full. There’s a private dining room, too and the wine list, mainly South African is well chosen and very reasonably priced, should you wish for premium wines. The cocktails were alcohol forward and a welcome sight meandering down the beach towards us every late afternoon. The barman said his Espresso Martinis were his best cocktail, however, they are not on the list but, do try (you’re welcome!) Activities were more than enough, we thoroughly enjoyed the perfect private picnic on North Shore beach, I got back in to scuba diving, in the company of three dive masters, while the inclusive island jeep trip and dhow sunset cruise were delightful. Every member of staff was on point in every way, you wanted, nor needed, nothing. The weather was a very consistent 23C every day, not too hot, only the breeze varied. The hotel also has a beach club, open on Wednesday and Saturday, it’s fantastic but, be warned, you may see people, as it’s open to the public! We were very sad to leave, are very nostalgic following other guests pleasures on Instagram and would love to be transported there, at any moment, it’s sublime!
