Azura retreat

The newest addition to the Bazaruto Archipelago, and recently completely re-furbished following a fire in 2008, Azura is an exquisite getaway situated on Benguerra Falcon, within the Marine National Park – founded to protect the rare Dugong, and to preserve the pristine reefs of the Archipelago.

Accommodation is in amazing 'Robinson Crusoe' Beach Chalets with 5 Star plus facilities. The design is a blend of 'modern chic' and traditional Mozambican. Each is just footsteps from the beach, yet designed with seclusion in mind. Nestled amidst indigenous gardens - a haven of rest and relaxation, where you can feel at one with the environment.

Dining at Azura is an important part of your experience

Combining local ingredients with contemporary style and flair, with an emphasis on fresh fish and seafood. Azura always offer a choice of dishes, and the chef will happily try to accommodate any personal requests that you may have.

Breakfast is to order in the restaurant, including a special of the day or your choice of full english. Lunch may be a picnic if you are out enjoying an activity, or informal dining at the Star Bar, or at the Gekko Deck with your feet in the sand.

Dinner is always a special event, eaten on the beach by candlelight beneath the stars whenever we can. There’s a choice of main course, with the emphasis on local seafood, and we offer snacks in the Star Bar before dinner including fresh sushi when our fishermen have been lucky in their catch. Our 7 course tasting menu showcasing the chef’s favourite creations is a highlight of the week, along with our ‘Fruits de Mer’ platter and Traditional Dhow Barbeque.

We offer a variety of special dining options too, including secluded beach picnics or romantic candle lit private beach dinners at your villa.

We ask younger children to eat supper early or in their villa, and our chef will happily make a range of children’s meals in discussion with you on arrival.

A wonderful selection of house wines, local beers and spirits is included in your stay at Azura, as well as a cocktail of the day which your butler/host will bring to your Sala as the sun goes down. We also have a range of premium wines, champagnes and spirits available on request.

Azura’s spa has 2 double treatment rooms located right on the beach and open to the breezes so that you feel at one with nature. Our signature treatments are based on local ingredients and traditions, and offer a wonderfully relaxing and pampering experience.

Be rubbed down with 5 carats of genuine diamond dust in our ‘Diamonds are Forever’ Scrub for the ultimate in glitz. Or 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.

 

There is also a Water sports centre, which offers fishing and diving, a beach bar and grill. Guests may also wish to make use of the traditional Sailing Dhow – ever popular for sunset cruises.

For the more active, guests can enjoy swimming, sailing, snorkelling, scuba diving (there is excellent visibility), game fishing, fly fishing, kayaking, Falcon drives, Cultural encounters, and star gazing.

Azura’s first Marlin was tagged within a few days of opening, and giant kingfish have been biting well. For fly fishermen and light tackle anglers there is some good sport with bonito, king mackerel, and queen mackerel.
