North Island is a place of barefoot luxury for those seeking an unspoilt, spectacular tropical retreat. There are only 11 individually handcrafted guest villas on the entire island, each constructed to create a sensorial experience in surroundings of understated elegance and providing a unique atmosphere and distinct flavour of the Seychelles. The Presidential Villas (villas 1 to 10) each have a study or second bedroom, forming the perfect space for children; Villa North Island (Villa 11) is an ideal getaway for a couple. All the villas are built directly on the eastern beach.
A lounge, dining room and library, scenically located health spa and gym, world-class dive centre, and a rim-flow swimming pool are all built into a granitic outcrop. A sunset bar and restaurant are tucked away on the western beach of the island. Activities include biking, gym, guided walks, snorkelling, fishing, boating, sea kayaking, and scuba diving. North Island has created a signature style that combines natural beauty with sheer luxury, a rare experience in harmony with the environment.
Imagine an unspoilt island within a pristine Marine National Park. Miles of deserted beaches with soft white sand. Sparkling turquoise seas, crisscrossed by local dhow boats plying their trade. Swaying palms, gentle breezes, sunny days and star studded nights. Welcome to Azura Benguerra Island.
Built entirely by hand in partnership with the local community, we have just 20 spacious ’beach-chic’ designer villas, each with their own private pool stretching out to the Indian Ocean beyond, and located a few steps from the pristine white sand beach. They offer our discerning guests every comfort, with handcrafted king size beds, feature bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers, air-conditioning, daybeds, lounging decks and salas right on the beach. They were designed for the ultimate getaway in this magnificent beach paradise.
Our 2 bedroomed Villa Amizade is perfect for families, friends, or those requiring a little more relaxation space, with the benefit of its own lounge and dining areas, ‘wine bar’, and larger swimming pool. The 3 bedroom Presidential Villa has its own beachfront location for complete seclusion and privacy. It has a magnificent master suite, as well as 2 further en-suite bedrooms, and is perfect for a family stay. There is a vast infinity pool, great entertaining space from the lounge bar to the treehouse deck, and a private chef and Mozambican villa host for the ultimate in personalised service during your stay with us.
We offer a vast range of guided activities and experiences for you to enjoy, including world class snorkelling, fishing and scuba diving from our Padi 5 star dive centre. Take a tour of the island, visit the community, and the school that our Rainbow Fund registered charity built for the islanders. Go Island hopping by boat or by helicopter, enjoy a cocktail in your beachfront sala, drinks in the star bar, dinner in our wine cellar, or a relaxing massage at our unique African Spa. Your days are tailored around your wishes, to do as much or as little as you would like. Our ‘designed to give back’ ethos, whereby we support a range of community initiatives for our décor items, is evident throughout Azura, and provides an added area of interest for our guests.
At Azura, we believe that dining is all part of the experience, from breakfast at the water’s edge, to a full service picnic on a sandy island, or romantic dining on a candle-lit beach beneath the stars. Our Mozambican hosts take huge pride in their innovative dining set-ups, and little touches to make your stay special. They are what our guests comment about the most, and are there to personalise your stay, as well as providing a unique insight into all things Mozambique.
With wonderful cuisine, ever smiling Mozambican service and a vast range of activities and experiences, Azura Benguerra Island is the perfect island escape. How you spend your time with us is your choice, but getting the small things right that will make the difference is ours.
