Azura at Quilalea Island welcome 
Azura at Quilalea 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 important vacation of your life. This is the kind of place you dream of for your honeymoon, 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 treats, including a bottle of sparkling wine on arrival, an upgrade if available, and 40% discount on the normal rate for the bride on stays of 5 nights or more.
 
Honeymoon Heaven - proof of marriage is required to be produced on check-in at the hotel.
 
Azura at 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. Azura at Quilalea is an Eco-Boutique Retreat. Whilst the Quirimbas Archipelago stretch from Pemba to the Northern border with Tanzania, only the very southern part of the archipelago, where Quilalea is located, forms a fully protected marine sanctuary.
 
This is paradise for lovers of marine life, with snorkeling and scuba diving straight off the main beach. There are some amazing dive sites in the surrounding waters, with walls and drop offs for the more adventurous. We are lucky enough to have humpback whales from July to November, nesting turtles from November through to April, and pods of dolphins for company in front of your villas year round. There is also kayaking through extensive mangroves on nearby Sencar Island, sailing on traditional Mozambican dhows, and some fantastic deep sea fishing.
 
Back on land, we offer exclusive picnics and romantic candle-lit beach dinners, island walks to view the giant baobabs, cultural trips to the nearby Ibo Island, and relaxing treatments at our African Spa.
 
Quilalea Island is 30 nautical miles North of Pemba. The island is approximately 86 acres in size and apart from Azura at Quilalea staff and guests, it is completely uninhabited. There are 4 large sandy beaches on the island, the villas are spread along 2 of them, the main beach always has boat access, and remote and beautiful turtle beach is home to dozens of nesting turtles which our guests are often lucky enough to see. It is also an excellent spot for a private picnic lunch.
 
The villas
In keeping with the uninhabited nature of the island, the retreat consists of only nine seafront villas, accommodating eighteen guests. The villas feature indoor/outdoor showers, private decks stretching out to the beach, daybeds and sun-loungers for relaxing. There are 3 options to choose from - Kaskazi Villas, Kusi Villas and Villa Quilalea (or hire the whole island for your most amazing island honeymoon).
 
All of the award winning villas at Azura Quilalea Private Island envelop you in the lap of luxury, and are situated just a few steps from the Indian Ocean.
