Azura Benguerra Island
Bazaruto Archipelago

The epitome of African eco-chic, Azura Benguerra is set within Bazaruto National Park on the squeaky white beaches and turquoise waters of Bazaruto island, reached via speedboat or an exhilarating 15-minute helicopter flight from Vilanculos. With regular flights to Vilanculos from Johannesburg and Kruger in South Africa, it is a perfect post-safari beach resort.

Built by hand by the local community, Azura Benguerra has 20 spacious thatched villas, each with its own plunge pool and sun deck just steps from the beach. A blend of understated modern cool and traditional Mozambique accents, villas come with handcrafted king size beds, bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers, air-conditioning and their own personal Mozambican host to cater to all your needs.

There are 3 Beach Villas (perfect for honeymooners in a secluded spot close to the spa), 3 Luxury Beach Villas, 10 Infinity Beach Villas (which have the best beachfront location), 2 Royal Beach Villas (the largest and most lavish of the villas), the 2-bedroom Villa Amizade (the perfect family villa) and the  Presidential Villa, a splendid 3- bedroom complex with a split-level master suite, a 16-metre infinity pool and a sun deck with a lounge in a treehouse!

With the Indian Ocean as your playground, you can explore magnificent reefs snorkelling and scuba diving (there is a 5 Star Padi dive centre) and see turtles that nest on the island’s outer shores. Humpback whales are often seen in season (May-Oct) and, if you are lucky, the highly endangered dugong may make an appearance. Guests can also go big game fishing and salt water fly fishing, try paddle boarding, sail a dhow boat, enjoy private beach picnics, or explore the island on a Land Rover. For extra pampering head to the spa for soothing treatments using traditional African ingredients.

Client Testimonials

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
