The newest addition to the Bazaruto Archipelago, Azura is an exquisite getaway. It is situated on Benguerra Falcon, within the Marine National Park – founded to protect the rare Dugong, and to preserve the pristine reefs of the Archipelago.
With only 14 luxury beach villas, and 1 Presidential Villa, Azura remains small and exclusive. Designed with relaxation in mind, each villa is mere footsteps from the beach, but still stays secluded, nestled as it is, amongst the indigenous trees and bushes. Each villa boasts its own plunge pool, and deck – where you can enjoy private dining. In addition there is a Sala, outdoor shower, air-conditioning, and private butler service. In addition, the Presidential Villa will be equipped with an additional bathroom, sitting-cum-dining area, and a Jacuzzi.
Azura also boasts comfortable, and relaxed public areas, with magnificent Ocean vistas. Here, you will also find a library, complete with wide-screen TV, and internet access. You might also wish to indulge the senses with a visit to the Spa, with its locally designed signature treatments. At present the treatments are offered in the privacy of your Villa, and include a complementary neck and back massage upon arrival.
A separate Spa is located on the beach, away from the main Lodge. There are two double treatment rooms, complete with outdoor shower and relaxation area.
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.
Azura also has an in house environmentalist/ marine biologist, who will be working on community projects, and educating guests on the Bazaruto Archipelago. Stargazing has also been added to the menu of events at the Lodge.
You might also wish to opt for a helicopter transfer out to the Falcon – an efficient and exciting way to travel to and from the Falcon.
