This beach resort is unquestionably the most romantic resort I have ever stayed at. The helicopter flight in from Vilanculos Airport in itself is a wonderful experience. I have never seen such beautiful blue water and sand bars as here off of Beguerra Island. The staff at the resort are so attentive to every single of our needs. The staff...

We had a wonderful stay and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the Azura Benguerra team. The resort is beautiful, and the team is first class. The amount of effort that they put into the local community and into their guests is truly a difference maker. This is a group ahead of the curve in trying to put Mozambique on the...

We went to a wedding at Azura & the bridal party took over the whole resort. I kept pinching myself because I felt that I was in one of those Indie movies. The setting is stunning. The accommodation unbelievable - we were in the presidential suite - wow! Even the chalets were superb, all with your own pools and private...

Dear Sally C Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review. The Wedding in March this year will remain one of our favourite moments of 2014.

From the first sight of Azura Benguerra from the helicopter bringing us from Vilanculos we knew this would be a very special week, and so it proved in every way imaginable. The setting is, truly, paradise; scenically so beautiful and certainly in October, the climate perfect. Our warm, hospitable welcome from Collette and her staff presaged a quite incredible level...

Lovely hotel managed by a very nice group of people. The island has a fantastic vibe. The local children don't bother you constantly for money but instead actually came over and sat next to me on the beach and asked if I could help them practice there english by talking with me and my Brother.
