Found on the idyllic Benguerra Island in the Bazaruto Marine National Park, Azura is a combination of 16 villas, set against a backdrop of clear turquoise waters and unspoilt white beaches. The area is a natural oasis that presents itself as the ideal place for you to spoil yourself.
The 16 villas are divided between 10 Infinity Beach Villas, 3 Luxury Beach Villas, 1 Beach Villa, Villa Amizade and The Presidential Villa. Each of the accommodation options provides incredible beachfront views and air conditioning. The infinity beach villas (with infinity pools) and luxury beach villas are ideally positioned the latter mere steps away from the beach. The smallest of the accommodation on offer is the beach villa; a perfect choice for honeymooners, making up for its smaller size with close intimacy and guaranteed romance.

Wherever you eat the food is fresh and delicious.

Read what our previous clients thought of Azura at Gabriel's Benguerra Island
Place was excellent and beautiful. The food wasn't as good as safari and cape town, but still great. I would have preferred to pay extra a night to have better drink selection.
Azura is a fine destination but believe that is not up to the level of the other acommodations offered as there are some details (food, towels and in general a bit a lack of maintenance) that could easyly be improved. Although the location is great, you can easily find the beach a little bit littered on your walks inmediately after leaving the hotel front
