AZURA QUILALEA ISLAND

&  QUIRIMBAS ARCHIPELAGO YACHT CHARTER

QUILALEA ISLAND RESORT

OVERVIEW

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.  It is the second luxury Indian Ocean Retreat from the Azura Retreats group, bringing 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.

The island is approximately 86 acres in size and apart from Azura at Quilalea staff and guests, it is completely uninhabited. The island is covered in indigenous vegetation, with statuesque age old baobab groves and stunning flora and fauna, a real nature lovers' paradise. There are 4 large sandy beaches on the island, the villas are spread along 2 of them, the main beach always has boat access, and remote and beautiful turtle beach is home to dozens of nesting turtles which our guests are often lucky enough to see.

ACCOMMODATION

SUNSET FACING SEA FRONT BEACH VILLAS

The 4 Kusi Villas have been beautifully revamped in that subtle yet stunning Azura way, with spacious bathrooms, natural furnishings and pure African elegance. Kusi Villas have the premium locations, with an additional outdoor shower, beach sala and newly added private plunge pool.

SUNRISE FACING SEA FRONT BEACH VILLAS

The 4 Kaskazi villas are open-plan and spacious, with stylish décors of wood, cotton and materials such as rope, pebbles and rattan, all blending in seamlessly with the island surroundings. Guests need only take a few steps to the gleaming white beach, or they may choose to bask on their sun lounger on their private deck.

VILLA QUILALEA
The Ultimate Honeymoon Villa
The cliff-top Villa Quilalea offers the most astounding accommodation for a couple in the whole Quirimbas Archipelago, located on its own private part of the island where guests can enjoy magnificent views over the turquoise seas with dhows sailing by.

Sip cocktails on the extended outdoor deck of the villa while watching the beauty of the sunset, or delight in an exquisite candlelit dinner served in the private dining area. Alternatively luxuriate in your private infinity plunge pool.

Guests can access the ocean from their own cliff top step-ladder, which leads into a private alcove with a small beach at low tide, and immediate swimming and snorkelling at high tide, so to experience the impressive underwater world of Quilalea Private Island.

BAR / RESTAURANT

The main bar and pool area offers plenty of areas to relax in whilst enjoying views of the ocean. The informal lounge coming off the bar area offers satellite TV and a laptop with internet access.

 

The Jellyfish Dining Room is open on the sides to make best use of the trade winds that are wonderfully cooling on a summer night.

 

There is also a wine cellar for private dining and to showcase the proprietor's wines. 

WINING & DINING

At Azura, dining is all part of the experience, from breakfast at the water’s edge, to a picnic on a sandy island, to dining on a candle lit beach beneath the stars. Our menus are based on what is fresh and available, with a focus on light meals, simple ingredients, and lots of fresh fish and seafood. The huge Mangrove Crabs are a particular speciality, as well as Crayfish which is available in abundance. We always offer a choice of dishes, and our chef will happily try to accommodate any personal requests that you may have.

AWARD WINNING LUXURY

With an emphasis on providing our guests with the best the island has to offer, it’s hardly surprising that Azura Quilalea has been recognised as a leader in the luxury travel industry. Last year, we received Safari Awards for the Best Marine Safari Experience and Most Romantic Safari Property. In the same year, we were the Continent Winner for the World Luxury Hotel Awards in the following categories: Luxury Private Island Resort, Luxury Romantic Villas and Luxury Eco/Green Villa.

OVERVIEW

The Marquise 56' was Fountaine Pajot’s flagship catamaran and was beautifully built with typical French flare and class!

Designed to be a comfortable open ocean cruising yacht the 56’ Marquise is still the ideal charter catamaran. Make no mistake, the Marquise 56' is a big catamaran with one of the largest living areas of any yacht in its class.

Her bright & open saloon offers generous space and with a dining table that can sit 8 guests is a perfect place to entertain! There is a flat screen TV/ DVD, and music system, with speakers throughout. A new fully equipped galley offers everything a chef would need and with 3 fridge freezers there is plenty of space for keeping your drinks cold. There are 4 separate air conditioned ensuite double guest cabins, finished off in beautiful oak wood with white trim.
