Azura at Quilalea is the second luxury Indian Ocean Retreat from the Azura Retreats group, bringing Azura’s trademark African-chic style to Quilalea Private Island, a private, wholly uninhabited island paradise surrounded by the pristine waters of the Quirimbas Archipelago marine sanctuary.

Azura at Quilalea is a hidden gem, somewhere to retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life, with a relaxed and understated ‘Robinson Crusoe’ castaway style that belies the comforts and experiences on offer in the 9 seafront villas.

Snorkel the island’s shores, dive from the main beach, kayak the mangroves or relax in a hammock beneath the giant baobabs on the island. Quilalea is the ultimate private luxury hideaway in a stunning undiscovered destination, an untouched paradise for the just a discerning few to discover.


Quilalea Island is one of the Southernmost islands in the pristine Quirimbas Archipelago, 30 nautical miles North of Pemba.


All of the villas have a unique energy control system whereby guests can take control of their own eco-footprint. All mod cons are there if desired, including mini bar and air-conditioning, or guests can throw their villa open to being air-cooled by the natural breezes.

The aim at Azura is for you to never eat in the same place twice - from breakfast at the water’s edge, to a picnic on a remote sand island, to dining on a candle lit beach beneath the stars. The Butler-hosts take huge pride in their innovative dining set-ups, and little touches to make your stay special.

Menus are based on what is fresh and available, with a focus on light meals, simple ingredients, and lots of fresh fish and seafood. It’s a simple understated affair. A choice of dishes is always on offer, and the chef will happily try to accommodate any personal requests.

Lunches may be a picnic if you are out enjoying an activity, or informal dining at the Star Bar deck. Dinner is always a special event, eaten on the beach by candlelight beneath the stars whenever possible. A variety of special dining options are also offered, including secluded beach picnics or romantic private beach dinners at your villa.


Azura offers unique African Spa treatments at the beautiful clifftop spa. Lie back and relax to the calming sounds of the ocean lapping against the headland cliffs, while you indulge in one of our signature treatments.

They use only natural ingredients sourced from the wilds of Africa, for the ultimate relaxing and pampering African Spa experience. Every treatment starts with a foot bath with scented water, where your therapist will discuss your specific needs and the natural ingredients that will be used.

If you would prefer, you can enjoy most of these world class treatments in the comfort of your own villa, or on your deck, to take advantage of Azura’s beautiful romantic setting.
