About Azura Quilalea Private Island
Azura Quilalea Private Island 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 9 handcrafted seafront villas. Quilalea Island is one of the southernmost islands in the pristine Quirimbas Archipelago, a scattering of beautiful unspoilt islands in remote northern Mozambique. The island boasts 4 fabulous beaches and apart from Quilalea staff and guests, it is completely uninhabited, ensuring total privacy and exclusivity. Quilalea is the ultimate private luxury hideaway in a stunning undiscovered destination, an untouched paradise for the just a discerning few to discover. The villas at Azura Quilalea provide you with your own island castaway home, somewhere to relax, unwind, and forget about the world. In keeping with the uninhabited nature of the island, the retreat consists of only nine seafront villas, accommodating eighteen guests. The villas are built from natural coral stone and makuti thatch, and have all been revamped to increase comfort and make better use of the interior space. Inside, there are handcrafted oversize beds, comfortable, all natural, designer ‘beach-chic’ finishings and furnishings, and spacious bathrooms with baobab tiled showers with a view out to sea. Conscious of this pristine natural environment and the need to preserve it, Azura Quilalea has embarked on a unique energy saving project, whereby solar power, wind generation, rainwater harvesting, and eco-friendly rechargeable crystal batteries are used in combination with normal generators and desalination to provide the island’s power and water. Cuisine at Azura Quilalea is focused around the natural produce available locally, in line with the island’s ‘Eco Ethos’. Lots of fresh fish and seafood dominate the menu, with dining a relaxed and laid back affair. Our aim is for you to never eat in the same place twice. This is paradise for lovers of marine life, with superb snorkelling and world class scuba diving available straight off the main beach. Uniquely in Mozambique, Azura Quilalea has snorkelling and diving right off its beaches and headlands. Enjoy romantic beach and baobob grove picnics, or candle lit dinners on the beach beneath the stars. This is the ultimate private luxury hideaway, in a stunning undiscovered location.
