Imagine an unspoilt island within a National Park, deserted beaches of pure white sand, sparkling turquoise seas crisscrossed by local dhows plying their trade, swaying palms, sunny days and star studded nights… and you have Azura at Gabriel's.
Azura is the country's first luxury 'eco' boutique retreat. Built entirely by hand by the local community and operated in partnership with them, it has just 15 villas, each with their own infinity pool and designed for both pampering and barefoot escapism.
With wonderful Mozambican cuisine and friendly service, a vast range of activities and experiences including scuba diving, deep sea fishing, stargazing and a unique African Spa, you have the perfect undiscovered island getaway.
The handbuilt villas blend modern chic with all that is traditional in Mozambique. The creature comforts you would expect from a luxury boutique resort are there, set off by locally sourced wooden beams and traditional artwork beneath a thatched jekka roof.
A kaleidoscope of colour greets you above and below the ocean. Magnificent reefs for diving and snorkelling, home to the turtles that nest on the island's outer shores.
Azura's dedication to conservation and the community lies at the heart of everything they do. Azura at Gabriel's is one of only a handful of resorts where the community are major contributors and stakeholders.
