Azura Quilalea

Situated on a private island, Azura Quilalea is a hidden gem and gives off a Robinson Crusoe feel and style. It is a gorgeous getaway, away from the busy outside world and surrounded by crystal clear waters of the Quirimbas Archipelago marine sanctuary.

Why we love Azura Quilalea!

Now this is one of my favorite places in the world. I loved EVERYTHING about this place. Just to name a few…the rooms, the plunge pools, the views, the food, the service, the snorkeling (and epic diving off the beach), the fishing, the turtles swimming past my room and let’s not forget the scenic heli flight to get you there in the first place. The management couple run a fantastic ship and it is shown throughout your stay. This spot was place was everything and more #takemeback.

Client Reviews

  • Heaven at Quilalea

    Having spent many holidays in Mozambique where I met my lovely wife, she could not be with me to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary here as she passed away on the day of our 49th. We have visited many resorts in the world; Quilalea rates with the best. Will be back with our daughter and family

  • A week in Paradise

    We have recently returned from a week’s holiday at Azura Quilalea with our 2 children age 13 and 16. The island is idyllic with the most beautiful clear turquoise water surrounding it. We particularly liked the house reef so we could snorkel straight from the beach and it was amazing. We also took a boat trip to snorkel at a coral garden on the other side of the island which was really worth it.

  • Island Perfection

    We were blown away by the attention to the finest detail from beginning to end of our stay. The most efficient immigration and airport transfer ever, facilitated by well trained Azura staff. An unforgettable helicopter transfer to the island and then a personal welcome by our hosts, Leon and Claudia.
