We stayed here for 9 nights on our honeymoon. I couldn't be happier with the choice to stay at Azura. We were upgraded to the Infinity Pool Villa which was huge and had all the conveniences you'd want. The villa was decorated very sympathetically using local art and crafts to make you feel like you're staying somewhere with culture and... More

I just want to say that I rarely write a review on Trip Advisor. This trip was so amazing, I decided to review the resort. I think Azura Benguerra Island is a rare find.

We stayed one week in Azura and loved every minute of it. It was a relaxing, exiting, colorful and comfortable time! We stayed in a beach villa which was huge, had a private pool and sundeck and was, like all villas, directly located on the beach. The beach itself is wonderful and very empty, there is only one hotel and... More

We went to Azura for a friend's wedding and it was such an excellent and memorable experience that I felt compelled to share it. The island itself is exquisite.

The island is amazing. It is a great place to spend a few days to relax.

I was fortunate enough to stay at Azura and I loved every minute of it. The villas are gorgeous and and not too overly "beach-cottagey" and even though they're not that far from each other, dividers ensure you'll have privacy.

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
