Azura Quilalea Private Island

Quilalea Private Island, Mozambique

Love at First Sight

Azura Quilalea is a hidden gem, somewhere to retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life, with a relaxed and understated ‘Robinson Crusoe’ castaway style that belies the comforts and experiences on offer in the nine seafront villas. It is the second luxury Indian Ocean Retreat from the Azura Retreats group, bringing Azura’s trademark African-chic style to Quilalea Private Island, a private, wholly uninhabited island paradise surrounded by the pristine waters of the Quirimbas Archipelago marine sanctuary.

Romance

Azura is one of the most romantic destinations in the world. A deserted remote island paradise, reached by a spectacular helicopter flight over the pristine turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, a uniquely special place and a haven of privacy to spend the most romantic vacation of your life. This is the kind of place you dream of for the ultimate private getaway, lazy days spent swimming and relaxing, long lunches with fresh food and free-flowing wine, and romantic nights spent dining on a candlelit beach beneath the stars.

Honeymooners at Azura receive a range of special amenities, including a bottle of sparkling wine on arrival, an upgrade if available, a romantic turndown, a private dhow cruise at sunset, and an excellent discount on the normal rate for the bride on stays of 5 nights or more.

Your Stay

The Azura team is here to welcome you, and go out of their way to make your stay at Azura Quilalea special. Our core philosophy is that every day should be different, and we should wow you during your stay with us. That starts with providing Mozambican hosts to look after you Our guests come to love them so much they often ask to take them home! They’ll take care of you during your time with us, including serving your meals, running down the beach with a table and chairs if you want lunch at the water’s edge, or serving cocktails to your beachside sala as the sun goes down.

What to Do

Azura Quilalea Private island offers a paradise for lovers of marine life, with superb snorkelling and world class scuba diving available straight off the main beach. Watch as pods of dolphins cruise past your sun deck, or look out for humpback whales or nesting turtles in season. Kayaking through the mangroves on nearby Sencar Island is not to be missed, or go deep-sea fishing for tuna or king mackerel to barbeque fresh that evening. Enjoy romantic beach and baobab grove picnics, or candlelit dinners on the beach beneath the stars. Visit nearby Ibo Island, the cultural highlight in the area, or simply relax at the cliff-top African Spa. This is the ultimate private luxury hideaway, in a stunning undiscovered location.

The Food of Love

At Azura, dining is all part of the experience, from breakfast at the water’s edge, to a picnic on a sandy island, to dining on a candlelit beach beneath the stars. Our menus are based on what is fresh and available, with a focus on light meals, simple ingredients, and lots of fresh fish and seafood. The huge Mangrove Crabs are a particular specialty, as well as Crayfish which is available in abundance. We always offer a choice of dishes, and our chef will happily try to accommodate any personal requests that you may have.
