You're own butler, a room that leads straight out to the beach, staff that wait on you hand and foot. The food is great, everyone is friendly and so helpful. Amazing place, truly I have never been anywhere as amazing as...

Getting to Benguerra is a breeze, a short flight from OR Tambo airport, Johannesburg, to Vilanculos airport in Mozambique, straight through the airport and onto the waiting helicopter for the 10 min amazing flight across azure sea to Benguerra Island. Felt like a VIP. For some sane advice, fly SA Express to Mozambique where ever possible. The local Mozambique carrier,...

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
