Azura Quilalea Private Island
Think Robinson Crusoe castaway seafront villas, pristine waters, baobab hammocks and kayaking in the mangrove forests. Azura Quilalea Private Island in the Quirimbas Archipelago off the coast of northern Mozambique is undoubtedly the ultimate private luxury hideaway.

Azura Quilalea Private Island

Azura Quilalea is located on Quilalea, one of the thirty two islands that shape The Quirimbas Archipelago off the coast of northern Mozambique. A mere twenty minute helicopter transfer from the main city port, Pemba, Azura Quilalea Private Island is surrounded by miles of flawless marine sanctuary. 

This eco-boutique retreat, made up of nine sea-fronted villas, located on a private island paradise, is the perfect escape. Just footsteps away from the beach, their stylish villas decorated in natural finishes like pebbles and rope, blend in harmoniously with their surroundings. Mozambican butlers, sundecks, daybeds, hammocks and alfresco showers are just some of the features that make this the easiest place on earth to unwind.

Azura is ideal for marine-life-lovers with amazing dive sites and an abundance of sea life. Adorned with humpback whales from July to November, nesting turtles from November to April, and pods of dolphins on your villa doorstep all year round. On land they offer exclusive picnics, romantic candle-lit beach dinners, island walks, cultural trips and relaxing treatments at their African Spa.

A visit to Azura Quilelea is a feast for the senses!

'Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on earth. Once you have been there, you will never be the same. But how do you begin to describe its magic to someone who has never felt it?'
