Azura at Quilalea Location Map

Azura at Quilalea is situated on Quilalea Island, a unique island marine sanctuary, fringed with pristine beaches and surrounded by the tropical Indian Ocean. Just 35 hectares in extent, this Indian Ocean island offers the ultimate in seclusion and privacy, with the only residents being Azura's guests and staff.

Spend your days simply soaking up the sun by the swimming pool or on the pristine, white beaches or choose from the many adventure activities on offer on the island.  Diving, snorkelling, fly fishing, sport fishing, canoeing, island exploration, swimming, historical tours, dhow sailing trips and bird watching are all available.

A beautiful walking trail leads to Turtle Beach, where you can find up to 90 turtle nests during the turtle nesting season. Quilalea Island is one of the most important nesting sites for turtles in the whole of the Qurimbas Archipelago. Green and Hawksbill turtles are common to the area and nest between June and July. The hatchlings make their appearance a month or two later between August to September. Watching the little turtles scurry over the sand to the sea is a sight you will never forget.

The island has its own water sports centre, which is a fully equipped fishing and PADI dive centre. Sport fishing and deep-sea angling are offered outside the sanctuary where game fish are plentiful.

The 9 villas all offer spacious bathrooms, natural furnishings and pure African elegance.  There are 3 categories for guests to choose from - Kaskazi Villas where guests need only take a few steps to the gleaming white beach, or they may choose to bask on their sun lounger on their private deck; Kusi Villas Villas situated in premium locations with private plunge pools; and the Villa Quilalea - situated on the cliff top with an infinity plunge pool and access to the ocean from a private cliff top step-ladder, which leads into a private alcove with a small beach at low tide, and immediate swimming and snorkelling at high tide.

The main bar/lounge area features a central 'look through' indoor/outdoor bar, just perfect for sipping cocktails and watching the sun set while you chill with a good book.
