Azura Lodge

Azura Lodge is the country’s first luxury eco-boutique retreat. Built entirely by hand in partnership with the local community, it has just 16 villas, each with their own infinity pool stretching out to the Indian Ocean beyond, and designed for the ultimate in pampering and privacy.

Azura Lodge is located in Benguerra Island which is the second largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago, famous for its unspoiled white beaches, remarkable dive sites and excellent fishing. Benguerra Island has about 2000 inhabitants and there are 313 children in the school which was built by Azura’s Rainbow Fund Charity. There are no shops, other than small trading posts, so please bring everything you may need with you, especially any medication you may require.

Accommodation at Azura Lodge;

  • 1 Beach Villa
  • 3 Luxury Beach Villas
  • 10 Infinity Beach Villas
  • 1 Villa Amizade
  • 1 Presidential Villa

All villas are very spacious with the Infinity and Luxury villas covering a total private area of 650m2.
The key difference between the Luxury Villas and the Infinity Villas is the prime positioning of the Infinity Villas, a larger bathroom with freeform bath, and the size of the villa pool. The Luxury Beach Villas each have 3.5m plunge pools whereas the infinity villas have a 5m long infinity pool. The Beach Villa is slightly smaller in all aspects but has an excellent location.
The villas are all nestled amidst the indigenous trees and bushes and have been painstakingly created to offer guest their own private sanctuary where they can feel at one with the environment.

Dining at Azura Lodge

A key focus at Azura is the cuisine, with a focus where possible on fresh local produce such as fish and seafood. The array of irresistible signature dishes will not disappoint, and nor will the accompanying fine wines, including those flown in from the owners chateau in France‟s Loire Valley.
Special dining events include a more formal seven course tasting menu at least once a week, as well as Mozambican seafood venings.
