Lovely family vacation
We had a wonderful weekend spent in azura for my husbands birthday. They offered us a beautiful and tasty oreo cake. Pedro was our host and he was amazing (friendly and helpful). He didn't rest until making sure that we were happy. Antonio,Eugene, Jhon and all the team are extremely prepared for a five star service. We did the complimentary dhow cruise and island drive tour. We'll definitely come back.
My husband and I were lucky enough to recently visit the stunning location of Peri Peri Beach Club, Azura Benguerra Island. We cannot fault our experience .... great food, wonderful selection of wine and a dreamy spa experience, we felt pampered and supported . Their amazing team managed to combine a relaxed sense of divine yet sophisticated simplicity , with truly excellent service and quality. Social distancing was effortless as they ensured that our well-being was paramount. The absolute highlight was an afternoon of whale watching, .... this was without a doubt a bucket list experience, we feel absolutely blessed, it was incredible. Back soon, for sure.
Family holiday par excellence!
Revisiting Azura Benguerra was very special - this time we spent our time there with our children. We were very spoilt with white sandy beaches, good weather and great service. The addition of the Peri Peri Club since our last visit was an added treat. The elevated decks were the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail and a great book. Azura staff were well prepared with Covid-19 disinfecting protocols.
I was left truly spellbound by this gorgeous destination!
To say Azura Benguerra is jaw-droppingly beautiful would be a massive understatement. It started with our helicopter flight from Vilanculos Airport to Benguerra Island. I have never seen a stretch of ocean so stunning in my life! A hundred shades of blue and turquoise, with streaks and swirls of the ocean floor creating the effect of an artist’s brush as you hover over to the retreat. Landing at Azura, we were greeted by a host of friendly staff who were ready to attend to our every need from the moment we left the helicopter. We were promptly shown to our villa where the surprises continued – a massive comfy bed, beautiful decorations and all the amenities we needed for a comfortable stay. The outside showers were a particular treat, as was the private splash pool and sala, under which we relaxed during the hot afternoons and enjoyed our refreshing sunset cocktails delivered by our personal host (Ronaldo). The meals were divine – lobster, prawns, beef fillet, sushi, curry – the only problem was that we came back a few kilos heavier! As for activities, we went for the island hop, which included a visit to Pansy Island, snorkelling and a private picnic – an experience I’ll never forget. The snorkelling in particular was out-of-this-world – the water was crystal clear and the reef we visited was full of vibrant colours, teaming with sea creatures of all shapes and sizes. The cherry-on-top was our visit to Peri-Peri Beach Club, which was apparently a new addition to Azura. There we enjoyed cocktails, pizzas, and seafood, all while cooling off in the plunge pool and mixing with the other guests. From there, we returned to the main lodge and were treated further to singing and dancing performed by the local school children – each as charming and adorable as the next. I honestly cannot find fault with this place – a truly one-of-a-kind experience that I would recommend to anyone. The worst part was having to leave – we only stayed three nights which was definitely not enough! I am already planning our return, and also hope to visit their Marlin lodge on Benguerra that we were told about during our stay. Thank you Azura and we will definitely see you soon!
Best trip in a long time!
I had been to Azura before and decided to go again on our honeymoon. It was beyond expectation once again. Great food, friendly staff and our own personal host (if you get Hessane consider yourself blessed), attention to detail, great cocktails, beautiful stargazing at night, the diving was incredible - oh and the new peri peri beach bar! I could spend every summers day there. Thanks for a great honeymoon!!! Looking forward to going back real soon.
