Azura Quilalea is an exclusive beach resort set on a beautiful private island in Mozambique’s Quirimbas Archipelago. It is a classic ‘desert island’ destination, and in keeping with the original Azura Lodge, Azura Quilalea Private Island has become equally famous for its exceptional service, luxury accommodation and divine culinary experience. It is a hidden gem, somewhere to retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life, with a relaxed and understated ‘Robinson Crusoe’ castaway experience, combined with Azura’s trademark African-chic style.
Its somewhere to relax, unwind and forget about the world.
There are just 9 handcrafted villas at Azura Quilalea, hewn from local materials, with coral stone walls, carved wooden beams, makuti thatch roofs, and timber wooden decks. With oversize beds, designer ‘beach-chic’ furnishings, air-conditioning, plunge pools (from mid 2017) and spacious bathrooms with indoor/outdoor baobab tiled showers, they are the perfect island castaway home.
The island is approximately 86 acres in size, and boasts 4 fabulous beaches. Snorkel the island’s shores, dive from the main beach, kayak the mangroves or relax in a hammock beneath the giant baobabs on the island. Quilalea is the ultimate private luxury hideaway in a stunning undiscovered destination, an untouched paradise for the just a discerning few to discover.
