Azura Retreats Mozambique is about to open an amazing new offering on Benguerra Island. From the end of July, Azura Marlin Beach will be welcoming guests to their second property on the island. After the previous Marlin Lodge burnt down in December 2012, and many years of it standing dormant – it’s been revamped in true Azura style in the last year.

Perfect paradise in Mozambique

This is Mozambique’s newest slick, hip and funky five-star beach resort. It’s the most affordable accommodation on Benguerra and Bazaruto islands and offers incredible value for money and matching service.

There are only ten villas nestled in the dunes and overlooking one of the last undiscovered stretches of beach in the world. Service is out of this world with your very own private butler and host to take care of your every need. There’s fresh seafood of every description daily, luxurious massages at the African Massage pavilion and a number of experiences and activities to choose from. From diving to dhow sailing, snorkelling and sunset cruises… it’s all there waiting to be discovered.

Fly in to Azura Marlin by helicopter from Vilanculos and as you look down over the sea and sandbars you will know you are on your way to somewhere special.
