At the moment you get into the helicopter from Vilankulos Airport to Azura Benguerra the magic start. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the food delicious, the villa beautiful, everything was perfect! The island hopper is an experience that you can´t miss.

There is no way to explain our experience at Azura. Right from the moment you step off the plane at Vilanculos airport you are treated like royalty. The first part of the trip, is the helicopter flight over. Its so exciting being led out to the apron, walking towards your beast. You get a glimpse of the wide open beaches,...

Azura is a beautiful lodge that we stayed in for 2 nights after 2 nights at the &Beyond Benguerra island property. Equally nice, but different style room, food was great and it's the same beach..... One thing that was important to me and of note, &Beyond includes laundry in the nightly rate you pay whereas it's additional here. I can't...

Fantastic hotel, amazing and friendly staff. Must do the snorkelling tour with a private beach lunch! The sunset is also very beautiful. Most of the seafood there or all of it comes from the local, for those who love must stay there at least 4 nights to try it all.

The perfect place to unwind. Helpful, efficient staff, lovely setting, thoughtful touches. Main activities are water based; snorkelling, diving, fishing, beach picnics so maybe not suitable for young families.

The location is unreal! Our villa was spacious and gorgeous. Tucked away just steps from the beach, hidden behind beautiful foliage and our very own swimming pool. Such a chic resort surrounded by stunning sand dune beaches and bays. We were able to be fully emersed into the kind and friendly culture of Mozambique By just getting to know the...

We were fortunate to stay in the one of the two beautiful Royal Beach Villas which we loved from the element of comfort and privacy and had to tear ourselves away to go on some of the great excursions on offer i.e. great snorkeling on two mile reef and private romantic picnic on a beach all to ourselves. Our private...

We went to Azura on our honeymoon and our minds were blown away. The accommodation was exceptional, the staff so warm and friendly. A genuine smile goes a long way. There are so many great activities to do and so well organised. After a day of activities or lounging around your own pool we would head to the bar and...

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
