Imagine an unspoilt island within a Marine National Park. Miles of deserted beaches with soft white sand. Sparkling turquoise seas, crisscrossed by local dhows plying their trade. Swaying palms, gentle breezes. Sunny days and star studded nights. This is Azura Mozambique.
Azura is the area’s first luxury eco-boutique retreat. Built entirely by hand in partnership with the local community, it has just 16 villas, each with their own private pool stretching out to the Indian Ocean beyond, and designed for the ultimate undiscovered getaway. With wonderful cuisine, friendly Mozambican service and a vast range of activities and experiences, including a unique African spa, it’s the perfect island escape.
Azura’s villas blend modern chic with all that is traditional in Mozambique. The creature comforts you would expect from a luxury boutique resort are there, set off by beautifully carved furnishings and traditional artwork beneath a local thatched jekka roof. Each is just footsteps from the beach at Azura, yet designed with seclusion in mind. A haven of rest and relaxation, where you can feel at one with the environment. A fusion of indoor and outdoor space where time becomes your own. Wander down to the pristine beach and welcoming azure sea beyond. Relax on your daybed and have your local Mozambican butler-host serve you drinks. Tan in private then cool off in your sparkling Azura pool. Sip a cocktail in your beachside sala as the sun goes down, then shower beneath the stars before dining in private on your deck.
All of the villas are a welcoming place to stay. You may not want to leave them at all!

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.
Enjoy your favourite cocktail whilst gazing at vast tracts of the Milky Way, or simply a great place to watch the sunset.
