World Class. Why would anyone go elsewhere ???
I had the privilege of spending 7 days at Azura Benguerra with my family. We have been very fortunate to have visited some of the best island resorts in the Maldives , Seychelles,Bahamas,Caribbean , Mauritius etc etc. At the end of this vacation I could only ask myself one question.....Why would you want to travel around the world when you have this quality of resort 90mins from Johannesburg. The booking experience with Karen was a lesson in professionalism and customer service at it's best. The management staff as well has entire team are simply exceptional. Our butler, Mino, elevates the term "personal service" to a new level. The rooms, catering, spa and excursions are exemplary. Are there any criticisms ?....there may be but they are so trivial that they are not worth mentioning. .Congratulations to you all and thank you. You will us all again very soon.
Great place to completely relax
This is a piece of heaven, rustic but well-equipped, private, quiet (unless you have noisy neighbours) - offering excellent service. The staff are super helpful and attentive; and give personal touches according to the guests' preferences. For example, they noticed we didn't enjoy loud kids playing on the beach right on top of our beautifully laid out table at dinner - and it only had to happen once. Since that one night, they made sure we were seated in a quiet place, and changed the location so we could get surprised and delighted at almost every meal. They also have a great system of putting the guests on a what's app group which is a wonderful means of safe communication about all manner of things (sending menus, expressing a need in the room, weather forecasts, etc) while maintaining social distancing. The rooms are spacious, each an air conditioned bungalow ensuite, with an outdoor shower, a private deck with a plug pool kitted with chairs, tables and a lovely mattress scattered with many cushions; another little deck with sun loungers and yet another right on the beach, shaded with dry palms roof, mattress and pillows. Very pampering. They offer free and paid activities - water sports, tours, horse riding etc. All well organised.
An incredible week
visited Azura Benguerra with some close friends in the first week of January and can’t recommend it more highly. For those looking to do something a little special, to push the boat out at bit, Azura Benguerra will deliver on all those expectations, from the moment you step off the plane in Vilanculos to the time you board the departure boat. Adriaan, Kaylee, Chelsie and team gave us a holiday we’ll never forget: the food was outstanding (especially the desert) and well portioned, the accommodations discrete and super luxurious, our butlers Ronaldo and Julio hosted with world class precision (even our teenage kids were impressed), and the excursions offered were beautiful, exclusive and well guided. If it seems a little expensive, it’s only because the end to end experience that is delivered - from snorkeling to deep sea fishing to private island tours - is comparable with or better than you’ll find in similar resorts in Kenya, Thailand, the Caribbean and the Seychelles. Well done team Azura Benguerra! Thanks for giving us an unexpectedly gorgeous break!
We had a great time. Carlos was our host and he did a fantastic job. Loved our villa, and visits from Sacred Ibises. Menu variety would be great post COVID. Had a great holiday with Neville and Patsy Schonegevel.
Paradise, perfect atmosphere
Beautiful resort, perfectly integrated with the environment, great atmosphere, excellent staff and nice vibe. In terms of activities highly recommend Paradise island ( Santa Carolina) day trip on a sunny day. Best resort on archipelago.
