Azura Quilalea is the second luxury Indian Ocean Retreat from the Azura Retreats group. It is bringing Azura's trademark African-chic style to Quilalea Private Island, a private, wholly uninhabited island paradise, with just 9 handcrafted seafront villas, ensuring total privacy and exclusivity. The island is approximately 86 acres in size, and boasts 4 fabulous beaches. Snorkel the island's shores, dive the house reef that spans the main beach, picnic on remote turtle beach, kayak through mangroves or relax beneath the giant baobabs that stand sentinel over the island.

Just back from a week on Quilalea island with family and friends. We all agreed that a week is too short, at least 10 days is needed to get the most out of your stay.

Coming from South Africa and having young children we were looking for an island holiday that did not entail a long flight but would offer great snorkeling and diving.
Everyone loved the helicopter transfer and from the moment we arrived we fell in love.

Thank you very much for your question. At Azura Quilalea Private Island we offer Kaskazi Villas and Kusi Villas, 4 of each. The differences between the two types are that the Kusi Villas have a better location on the island, an outside shower and a hammock. 4 Kaskazi Villas and are located on the side of the island that has sunrise, 1 Kusi Villa is located on the same side of the island and has a sunrise and sunset view from its deck. The other 3 Kusi Villas are located on the other side of the island, offering a sunset view directly from their deck. Snorkelling and diving right off the beach is done on the main beach, located on the same side of the island as the 3 Kusi Villas. But keep in mind that Quilalea Island is a small island (it is 35 hectares in total, and it takes 45 minutes only to walk around the island), with all villas located not far from the main beach. The furthest villa away from the main beach takes only a few minutes to walk to the beach.
Privacy is excellent in all villas, as we have natural bushes and trees between the villas. For your family looking for 3 villas I would suggest looking at the 3 Kusi Villas, they are located around the same beach. Can I help with you with your enquiry perhaps for dates in August? Please do contact us on +27 11 467 0907 and I hope we can welcome you to Azura Quilalea Private Island in August.
