Azura Benguerra Island Lodge

The ultimate romantic break to the Bazaruto Archipelago!

Unwind at the exclusive Azura Benguerra Lodge on the western coast of Benguerra Island in the scintillating Bazaruto Archipelago, one of Mozambique’s best-kept holiday secrets. Benguerra Island is a romantic holiday hot spot popular with honeymoon couples who love the innate serenity and scenic beauty of this special place. The rustic yet lavish lodge was built in partnership with local people who come from this island region, in true tropical style. 

Your booking in this superb setting ensures the perfect beach holiday in paradise and contributes to sustainable tourism at Benguerra. Try an array of water sports and stroll the long white beaches. Bliss. Beach picnics and drinks at the star bar make your day. Imagine an unspoilt island within a pristine Marine National Park with miles of deserted beaches. That is Benguerra Island Lodge. Soft white sand, sparkling turquoise seas, crisscrossed by local dhow boats plying their trade. Swaying palms, gentle breezes, sunny days and star-studded nights. 

Azura Retreats will be your hideaway in one of only 20 villas nestled cosily in the dune forests of one of the last undiscovered stretches of beach in the world. Feel inspired by the range of daringly lavish accommodation at Azura: two Beach Villas, 10 Infinity Villas, three Luxury Beach Villas, two Royal Villas, a Presidential Villa and the decadent Villa Amizade. 

This is sustainable tourism at work, and you are part of it when you choose Benguerra island resort above all other Mozambique destinations. How lucky are you to appreciate gorgeous, air-conditioned villas featuring their own infinity plunge pools and beachside salas! Notice the beautifully carved beams and traditional artwork beneath a local thatch roof.

Step from your lounge onto the eco deck and step from the deck onto pearly sands – then plunge into a glassy turquoise sea, reminiscent of a mountain lake. Azura Retreats villas snuggle deep in the secrecy of indigenous trees and shrubs, allowing you to create your own private sanctuary.

Picture your days revelling in your own space with its extra-long king-size beds, full bathroom, minibar, coffee station and private butler service. In addition to these facilities, Villa Amizade has 2 bedrooms, both with private bathrooms, and the Presidential Villa has 3 bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, a living/dining room, a larger pool and a large terrace with a Jacuzzi.

Everything has been designed in harmony with the marine and island environment with the constant input of the local people. Azura Benguerra Island gained its Carbon Neutral Status, another first for Mozambique accommodation.

Fresh homemade food and exotic wines are central to all activities at the lodge, drawing people together to share news and views about their sunny days spent in paradise. Chat to Voyage2Africa today about your next island idyll in Mozambique!

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon put together with so much care by Rushaan at Voyage2africa. Wow I don’t know where to start as everything exceeded our expectations! First of all Rushaan is super patient and her expertise in Africa is incredible – she reworked our trip over and over again until we were happy and everything she planned made so much sense once we were travelling and she met our brief spot on. Our standouts were Cape Town, Rushann even booked restaurants for us, and Old Drift at Victoria Falls as we loved being right on the river there and the helicopter flight was something I will never forget. Ending at Azura was amazing. Ronaldo looked after us so well what a spoil. We have already told friends wanting to do an African honeymoon about you, I am sure they will be in touch!
