Well known as the first eco-boutique lodge in Mozambique, Azura Benguerra is situated on the smaller of the islands that forms the Bazaruto Archipelago: Benguerra Island.
Azura Benguerra has been built entirely in cooperation with the local community, and continues to interact with them. Azura offsets modern and traditional, with all the luxuries one can imagine contrast by traditional artwork and thatched roofs.
Azura Benguerra has differrent villa types: Beach villa (2), Luxury Beach villa (3), Infinity Beach villa (10), Villa Amizade (1) and the Presedential villa (1). All are beautifully designed and only a mere few footsteps from the beach. Indigenous gardens separate the villas from each other and each have their own private sala which is the perfect spot for sundowner cocktails. All villas also have their own private plunge pools with the two main villas featuring large swimming pools. Both Villa Amizade and the Presidential Villa are perfectly suited for families with the first being a two bedroomed villa and the Presidential Villa offering three bedrooms. The Presidential Villa is a true home away from home experience with unsurpassed space, comfort and styling to be enjoyed.
A range of activities are on offer at Azura from scuba diving, snorkelling, dhow cruises, island drives and so much more. Pampering is on offer at the Spa with two double treatment rooms where well trained therapists offer a variety of treatments. The signature treatments take their inspiration from the very heart of Africa. Try a ‘Butter me up’ wrap using a unique blend of African body butters and oils, including the highly prized Mongongo Nut Oil. Follow that up with a relaxing massage using the new beauty miracle, Marula Oil. Or try something different with our Tribal Traditions massage, where olive and shea butter is poured all over the body, and massage strokes mimic the beating of African drums.
What is Special?
