Azura Benguerra Island Lodge

Nestled on the north west coast of Benguerra Island, one of six island in the arresting Bazaruto archipelago, there is a place that promises miles of deserted beaches, soft white sands disturbed only by nesting loggerhead turtles and glittering turquoise ocean dotted with traditional dhows plying their trade. This seemingly mythical place is Azura Benguerra Lodge.

Azura Benguerra Lodge surpasses all expectations in terms of service, facilities and experiences. An exceptional butler service is on hand to set up romantic dinners on the beach for guests celebrating honeymoons; a range of signature treatments inspired by Africa are on offer at the lodge’s very own spa; and experiences ranging from exploring the colourful reefs to sunset dhow trips to stargazing and drives through the local village.

Whether you’re looking for island accommodation that can offer you your very own rustic beach hut on a deserted island, all the luxuries of a 5-star resort, or simply a place where you can gaze at the astonishing beauty of underwater dunes surrounded by multi-hued tropical waters, Azura Benguerra Lodge offers an incomparable island experience with all the comforts and luxuries of contemporary luxury accommodation.

Dining & Entertainment

Much like the accommodation, dining at Azura Benguerra Lodge is an intimate but elegant affair. The interior comprises of a fine dining restaurant, while the exterior offers a more casual setting with a sprawl of wooden dining tables and chairs scattered over a sun kissed wooden deck and spilling out onto the soft sands of the surrounding beach.

Only fresh local Mozambican ingredients are used to create contemporary dishes that will delight even the most discerning of guest.

For those celebrating honeymoons, weddings or simply wanting to experience romantic candlelit dining beneath the stars, an exclusive butler is dedicated to creating innovative dining set ups right on the ocean’s edge and picnics on remote sand islands.

Located within the Bazaruto Marine National Park, Benguerra Island is home to just a handful of lodges, a rarity in a world plagued by mass development. As a result, the lodge is gifted with undisturbed landscapes and a quiet calm that will stir the soul and ease the mind. At Azura Benguerra Lodge, instead of the typical hustle and bustle, the rhythmic sounds of nature reign: the intermittent crashing of waves mingled gloriously with the chatter of lesser crested terns and swaying trees.
