"When we founded Azura back in 2007, our vision was to take people to undiscovered places of authentic natural beauty, enable them to stay there in luxury, while at the same protecting the environment and positively changing the life of a local community. We remain true to those values to this day, which has not only allowed us to build a strong and recognisable brand but also a company that is synonymous with community, luxury and authenticity.

We first fell in love with Mozambique with its endless deserted beaches, pristine reefs and sparkling turquoise seas. Its warm and welcoming people, with never ending smiles, were desperately in need of an opportunity to change their lives. Incurably romantic as a destination, steeped in history, and yet undiscovered by the luxury travel world, we decided to build our first hotel together there. We did so in collaboration with the local community, many of whom are still working for us to this day, and Azura Benguerra Island was born.

As people who had previously travelled the far corners of the globe in our professional careers, we gathered up little pieces of our favourite hotels around the world, and scribbled designs that frustrated our architects until we were happy that what we had dreamed could become a reality. We then added our unique décor concept, we call it ‘designed to give back’, where local community projects work hand in hand with our designers to create special little pieces you will find throughout our hotels.
