A hidden gem, Azura Quilalea offers its guests a relaxed and understated ‘Robinson Crusoe’ castaway experience, whilst never scrimping on luxury.
The island itself is surrounded by the magnificent pristine waters of a marine sanctuary.
The nine seafront villas here are constructed from local materials - natural coral stone walls, makuti thatch roofs, carved beams and reed shuttered windows. The Kaskazi Villas have fantastic views across the turquoise waters to Quirimba Island, while the Kusi Villas have more secluded locations and feature an outdoor bush shower.
The clifftop Villa Quilalea offers the superlative option amongst this incredible accommodation. Located on its own private part of the island, residents can enjoy magnificent views over the turquoise seas with dhows sailing by. Within you'll find a romantic four-poster bed, feature bathroom, extensive decking and lounging areas and your very own plunge pool.
A tempting menu utilises local ingredients with fresh fish and seafood dominating the menu. Your butler-host will delight in surprising with a range of different dining locations - beneath towering ancient baobabs, on a remote beach picnic or beneath the stars by candlelight.
Located in the pristine Quirimbas Archipelago, Azura Quilalea is an absolute paradise for lovers of marine life. Superb snorkelling and world class scuba diving is available straight off the main beach. Back on the island, watch pods of dolphins cruise past your sun deck, or look out for humpback whales or nesting turtles in season.
More relaxing activities include kayaking through the mangroves on nearby Sencar Island, a nature walk or simply relax with a massage at the cliff-top spa.
