Mozambique’s first eco-lodge, Azura was hand-built by the local community, who continue to play a large role in the life of the hotel. Constructed from natural materials, the exclusive 20 villas are all nestled along the immaculate beachfront and contain their own private pool and lounge area. Each villa comes with a personal butler-host who will look after your every need during your stay. Delight in spa treatments based upon local ingredients inspired from Mozambique’s traditions and remedies.


The lounge and dining areas across the hotel all boast spectacular vistas across the serene Indian Ocean waters, making them the perfect place to relax with a drink. At Azura, you can dine where you please with your private host bringing the cuisine to you; breakfast at the water’s edge to lunch on a remote ocean island and a candle-lit beach dinner, the choice is yours. With such close proximity to the ocean, it is no surprise that the seafood here is divine with the restaurant serving up a fresh catch each day.


With a world-class diving centre, whether you are a beginner or advanced, the expert instructors will accompany you on the most mesmerising dives. Surrounded by an underwater world of whale sharks, manta rays, humpback whales, hawksbill turtles, reef sharks and much more, this is a sensational place to dive.


The eco-friendly lodge embraces sustainable practices by utilising natural building materials, solar-powered showers, and eco-friendly detergents, prioritising environmental conservation. Built by the local community, the residents were taught vital building skills to enable them to find new employment. Furthermore, as a member of the 'Pack for a Purpose' initiative, the lodge encourages travellers to contribute to the community by donating educational or medical supplies, facilitating a lasting positive impact on the local area.
