Flawless Island Accommodation on the Beach at Azura Retreats Benguerra

Beach Villas 

Three smaller more intimate Beach Villas are located further away from the other villas yet closer to the Spa so ideal for honeymoon couples wanting a pampering solitary time together. Tuck into the well-stocked mini bar for personalised sundowners, enjoy the deep bathtub with ocean views and sink into the beach sala day beds for the end of the day cocktails and sunset vistas.

Royal Beach Villas

On the opposite end of the spectrum, two Royal Beach Villas are the largest and most decadent of all suites. Plunge into the 10m rim flow pool or chill beside the smaller plunge pool. Sink into plush sofas in the lavish lounges – which can also convert into beds for the kids if you book a fabulous family package deal. Day beds and beach salas are placed in gorgeous sunny spots for chilling with a book or a cuppa tea. Picture your own stretch of beach with flourishing gardens and enough space to imagine this is your new home. 

Luxury Beach Villas

Three Luxury Beach Villas are more modern and attractive to trendy young couples who love the idea of private undercover decks and king size beds. They are right on the beach so suit couples who love an early morning swim followed by an outside shower and breakfast on the deck. Then a choice of ocean activities awaits, with coffee breaks in between. 

Infinity Beach Villas

Finally, the 10 Infinity Beach Villas feature delightful ethnic Mozambican décor with an elegant slant, larger plunge pools and the best piece of Benguerra beachfront imaginable. Grab the gym-in-a-bag and head onto the white sands for that early morning workout. Then choose a tropical fruit and coconut juice breakfast for a healthy boost before setting off on a glorious drive around the island.  

Villa Amizade and Azura Presidential Villa

Top of the pile you will discover the crème de la crème in Villa Amizade and Azura Presidential Villa for more sumptuous accommodation, offering more space and fashionable accessories. These larger villas are ideal for families and groups who want their own piece of the island away from the crowds. They are packed with space, huge decks, TV lounges with CDs, DVDs, games and books. Your personal host attends to your every need so that you can enjoy true island relaxation.
