The AZURA Retreat on Quilálea Island is a dream come true: A private, almost uninhabited island paradise framed by the glittering blue Indian Ocean ... and you right in the middle of all this splendour!
Quilálea Island is situated in the southern part of the striking Quirimbas Archipelago. Approximately 35 hectares large, the island is one of the archipelago’s largest islands – and a stunningly beautiful one at that: bright-white sand beaches and pristine nature are Quilálea’s hallmarks.

The AZURA Retreat is the second resort by Christopher and Stella Bettany in the Indian Ocean. The secret to success is simple: South African chic and pristine island flair coupled with exclusivity and refined luxuries.
The Quilálea Island Resort features only nine luxurious villas. Quilálea Island is the perfect retreat, a hideaway constructed with the intent to turn the back on the hustle and bustle of modern civilisation.
The AZURA Retreat’s graceful design draws inspiration from the Creole style. The construction was erected by local craftsman using precious teak and mahogany timbers.
Escape from the midday heat in the villas. Natural stone walls, high thatched roofs and ceiling ventilators in the Colonial style provide a pleasantly cool ambience.
The AZURA’s villas all feature a private terrace on the beach. The bathrooms are a marvel decked out with intriguing mosaic tiling. The king-sized beds promise sweet dreams to come and the panorama windows look out over the Indian Ocean and allow the fresh ocean breeze to blow through your villa.
Set off to explore the island on your own or make good use of the AZURE Retreat’s highly diverse activity programme. The lush flora and fauna make every stroll an experience!
Sustainability and nature conservation play an important role. Some of the measures taken to minimize the resort’s impact on the environment are solar and wind energy as well as the collection of rain water. Moreover, the villas are equipped with a system that allows you meter and control your energy consumption.
