We spent 6 days on Benguerra Island and the location is absolutely stunning-crystal clear warm waters, empty beaches and relaxed beachfront villas complete with your own butler service. The helicopter flight to the hotel is breathtaking. The Presidential Villa offers complete privacy. The boat excursion to the neighbouring island was well worth doing-dolphins, sand dunes and a picnic all set...

The service is superb and skewed toward one thing- to make your stay easier, more comfortable and enjoyable. The excursions: island drive, island hob and Shala island were the...

The fabulous location, serenity and service make Azura incredibly special. It's a soothing place. The sea and stars surround you.

In april 2013 we visited Azura for a stay of 4 nights, together with a group of friends. We had the pleasure to enjoy the hospitality of the staff of the presidential villa as well as the generall staff.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Azura Benguerra, was built entirely by hand in partnership with the local community, it has just 20 villas, each sporting a personal infinity swimming pool, and spectacular beachside location, Azura offers an enchanting seaside escape. Spend sun-drenched days fishing, snorkelling or diving in protected reefs; watch the migrating whales and dolphins that ply these waters. Or relax on the beach and indulge in African spa treatments while a Mozambican Butler-host looks after your every need. The island's local people make for fascinating cultural encounters, and the starry night sky is magnificent to behold. ... more   less
