I had been to Azura before and decided to go again on our honeymoon. It was beyond expectation once again. Great food, friendly staff and our own personal host (if you get Hessane consider yourself blessed), attention to detail, great cocktails, beautiful stargazing at night, the diving was incredible – oh and the new peri peri beach bar! I could spend every summers day there. Thanks for a great honeymoon!!!
Looking forward to going back real soon.
This is a magical place. It truly met our hopes for an African beach paradise, even given how expensive it is. The seas are a beautiful aqua and usually very calm, there are long stretches of deserted white sand and the beach villas are luxurious but have a natural feel. But two things in particular stand this hotel apart. First, the staff are wonderfully friendly and make you feel so special. Your host looks after your every need and serves you at every meal, so you can get to know them a bit, which we loved.
The best experience ever. The hotel, people, service, rooms, everything was amazing. I had my birthday at Azura and the staff made it so especial. The actvities you do during youre stay are just another level.
