The 3 bedroom Presidential Villa at Azura Benguerra has been described as one of the best villas anywhere in the Indian Ocean. It has a very secluded private location, some 150m down the beach from main Azura, and comes with its own butler-host and private chef.
Azura Benguerra focus on fresh local produce such as fish and seafood with irresistible signature dishes. Dining locations range from informal and 'foot in the sand' dining to feasting in the comfort and intimacy of your own villa as well as dinners in the Jellyfish restaurant. There is a special, more formal, 7 course tasting menu at least once a week as well as a Mozambican evening. For the wine connoisseur, the wine cellar is always stocked with fine wines from the owner's vineyards, flown in from France's Loire Valley.
Azura has a PADI 5 Star Dive Centre with new top of the range Scubapro equipment. The training pool is perfect for refreshing your diving skills or even trying out snorkelling before you head off to the reefs, and for training they offer a full range of courses and have a PADI Instructor. If you are qualified, please bring along any diving certification cards or log books to prove your certification.

Your transfer to the island ie either by helicopter (approximately 10 minutes flying time) or speedboat (the transfer time is 15 minutes by minibus to the port, then 25-45 minutes by boat depending on sea conditions - guests choosing to transfer by speedboat should be prepared for a knee deep walk through the sea).
For those who like to ride, a trek along the waters edge on the horses based on Benguerra Island and back along some of the island's tracks and trails is an experience never to forget!
