Quilalea brings Azura’s trademark African-chic style to Quilalea Private Island, a wholly uninhabited island paradise surrounded by the pristine waters of the Quirimbas Archipelago marine sanctuary.
Azura 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.
There are just 9 seafront villas, accommodating a maximum of eighteen guests. They are hewn from local materials, with natural coral stone walls, carved wooden beams, makuti thatch roofs, and timber wooden decks. Windows have no glass, but have shutters made from local reed that open to allow the breezes through. 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.
The villas are stretched out along the beaches, some 16m – 70m apart from each other, and surrounded by indigenous gardens or natural bush.
This is paradise for lovers of marine life, with snorkelling and scuba diving straight off the main beach. With just a few guests on the island at a time, you will be the only people snorkelling and diving here, and as a result the plethora of sealife on view is spectacular.
Back on land, enjoy 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 the African Spa.
Azura Quilalea is the ultimate private luxury hideaway in a stunning undiscovered destination, an untouched paradise for the just a discerning few to discover.
