Azura Retreat Mozambique Eco Luxury Resort Updates
The Mozambique resort Azura has recent news that redefines eco-luxury for African resorts. Azura, Mozambique’s hottest boutique retreat has raised the environmental stakes by becoming the first carbon neutral retreat in the country. Not only does the luxurious private villa paradise offset its carbon footprint but it also works alongside the local community setting a standard for resorts worldwide, showing that luxury doesn’t literally have to cost the earth.
The vision behind Azura is to harness the power of responsible tourism for the benefit of the local people whilst conserving the unique cultural and biological diversity of Benguerra Island. Even before the building plans were finalised or the first brick laid, a dedicated team of environmental specialists were appointed to identify valuable and essential local projects that Azura could support.
From $595 per person per night
The marine environment is a priority at Azura, so the local communities are educated and encouraged not to hunt rare species or over-fish certain areas and a ‘no fishing zone’ has been established in front of the resort’s shores. This has already had a tremendous impact with a resurgence of fish life and regular dolphin sightings right in front of the villas. The community and environment specialists also report regular humpback whale sightings out towards the reefs, which Azura’s guests have been able to enjoy, and the occasional sighting of our semi-resident dugong ‘Antonio.’
Azura’s carbon neutral status was certified by the Carbon Neutral Company in the UK, with Azura offsetting its carbon emissions through contributions to a number of environmental projects around the world.
Azura, Mozambique’s finest boutique beach resort has opened a brand new fully equipped PADI 5 Star Gold Palm Dive Centre and training pool. The award winning lodge situated on Benquerra Island offers guests an unforgettable diving experience with new ScubaPro equipment and an eight metre Dan equipped dedicated diving rib.
