Villa Description


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.

EXCLUSIVE USE


The Full Private Island Experience
Guests are now able to enjoy the full private island experience at Azura Quilalea by having the use of the 86 pristine acres exclusively – perfect for a large family or group of friends.
The wholly uninhabited island paradise is surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Quirimbas Archipelago marine sanctuary, a hidden gem, somewhere to retreat to from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Quilalea Island has the only deep-water mooring in the area, where the Portuguese and Arab traders traditionally found sanctuary for their dhows. Along with its sister island Sencar, it is one of the few properties in the entire Archipelago to lie within a fully protected marine reserve, ensuring an abundance of marine life, and a spectacular snorkelling and diving experience for our guests. All this can be exclusive to you and your guests!

All Villas Available to You
The villas at Quilalea provide you with your own island castaway home, a private bolthole from your daily lives, somewhere to relax, unwind, and forget about the world. There are just 9 seafront villas on this private uninhabited island, accommodating a maximum of eighteen guests in absolute privacy. There are no telephones and Ipod docks here, just a fan to cool you down, an aircon should you need it, a fridge full of your favourite beverages, and a wooden pirate chest to store your most precious belongings. Outside, there are daybeds and sun-loungers for relaxing, and the private decks have fabulous uninterrupted views out to the beach and sea beyond.


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.
