We spent 4 days at Azura in May 2013 as a final leg of our African honeymoon, after tracking gorillas in Uganda and spending a few days at Serengeti in Tanzania. Our original plan was to stay at Benguerra Lodge nearby but after having spent there two or three days, we felt that it didn't live up to our expectations... More

We spent 6 days on Benguerra Island and the location is absolutely stunning-crystal clear warm waters, empty beaches and relaxed beachfront villas complete with your own butler service.

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
