The Azura Spa
There is a gorgeous treatment spa to relax and unwind with a variety of therapies and massages. There are 2 double reatment rooms, set on the beach and open to refreshing breezes. Treat yourself to a body scrub in genuine diamond dust, or a 'butter me up' body wrap using African body butters and oils. Massages are also offered, including the tribal Traditional massage, where the body is covered in olive and shea butter and the massage strokes mimic the beating of African drums. African masssage staffs and rainsticks are also used, leaving the body feeling soothed and calm.

Azura is situated within a National Marine Park, on the north-west of Benguerra Island, Mozambique. There are many water-based activities available to guests including snorkelling, diving and fishing. Guests can also go out with the Dugong protection team and search for this shy endangered mammal, help protect and release the turtles from their nests on these shores, sail on a dhow, cruise to deserted beaches and swim with dolphins. There is a marine biologist and community officer on site to show you the area.
