Experience the Azura Quilalea retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life

Price From: USD 825

Azura Quilalea is a hidden gem, somewhere to retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life, with a relaxed and understated ‘Robinson Crusoe’ castaway style that belies the comforts and experiences on offer in the 9 handcrafted seafront villas. A wholly uninhabited island paradise, ensuring total privacy and exclusivity for our guests, and surrounded by the magnificent pristine waters of a marine sanctuary.


There are just 9 seafront villas on this private island, accommodating a maximum of eighteen people in absolute privacy. They are hewn from local materials, with natural coral stone walls, makuti thatch roofs, carved beams and reed shuttered windows. The four Kaskazi Villas have fantastic views across multiple turquoise seas to Quirimba Island beyond. The four Kusi Villas have more exclusive locations, an extra outdoor bush shower, our ‘gym in a bag’, and hammocks for relaxing. The cliff-top Villa Quilalea offers the most astounding accommodation for a couple in the whole Archipelago, located on its own private part of the island where guests can enjoy magnificent views over the turquoise seas with dhows sailing by. The largest of the 9 villas, it has a romantic 4 poster bed, feature bathroom, extensive decking and lounging areas, and its own plunge pool.

Azura Quilalea is located in the pristine Quirimbas Archipelago, a scattering of beautiful unspoilt islands in remote northern Mozambique. It’s an absolute paradise for lovers of marine life, and uniquely in Mozambique there is superb snorkelling and world class scuba diving available straight off the main beach at our house reef. Learn to dive or refresh your skills at our Padi 5 star dive facility, before heading out to discover one of our many and varied nearby dive sites. Back on the island, you can watch pods of dolphins cruise past your sun deck, or look out for humpback whales or nesting turtles in season.
