Azura Quilalea is the ultimate private romantic experience. If you have ever dreamt of staying on a secluded island, eating meals fresh from the endless blue ocean that set out before you, then this rare ocean pearl is the perfect place to lay down your bags. It was voted Best Romantic/Honeymoon Room in Mozambique in 2014 and this is why:
This private island sits in a fully protected marine reserve with only nine villas on the entire Indian Ocean hill. Spend your blissful days on a tropical island in unpretentious sophistication and impossible comfort. Your meals come straight from the abundance of the ocean just steps from your private beach villa served by your private butler.
But the splendour doesn’t end on the pristine beach; it is carried through into the capacious Kaskazi and Kusi Villas which have a bearing of ethereal grandeur. They are delicately constructed with natural stone, wood, rattan and cotton such that they seem to grow out of the beaches, rocks and trees. The villas are a perfect blend of contemporary African chic and eco-conscious living. While modern conveniences such as air-conditioning are readily available, you can open the cleverly orientated doors and windows to allow the Indian Ocean breeze to cool and sooth your ultimate beach home.
And if you’ve decided to create lasting memories here on your honeymoon, then the Villa Quilalea, set on a cliff-top with breath-taking views over the ocean – is the ultimate space. You have complete privacy – from the sumptuous bedroom, to the infinity pool and down onto the exclusive beach.
But words are unable to let you experience the soothing elixir that is the island. It might be a hammock strung in the shade of a luxuriant island tree; a sun lounger next to the cooling fresh water of main pool with your favourite book; a perch next to the bar in the sunset sipping one of the owner’s personal chateau wines from the Loire valley; or the unique chill-zone with its enormous cushions overlooking the abundant ocean – so here are our handpicked images to transport you there instead…
