If you’ve ever wanted to escape to a deserted island, look no further than this exquisite hideaway. The eco-conscious Azura at Quilalea is set in the crystal waters of a marine sanctuary on an uninhabited private island in the little-known Quirimbas Archipelago. Yet despite its remote location, the resort’s green energy initiatives let you choose your personal comfort level. Each of the nine oceanfront villas has an “eco” and “lux” power switch that controls lighting, fans and air conditioning. This is the ideal place to laze in your villa’s hammock or on one of the island’s four white-sand beaches. Or take advantage of the pristine waters, nearby coral reef and the resort’s state-of-the-art watersports centre to enjoy the amazing snorkeling, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, and sea kayaking. Nature lovers can look for nesting turtles or head into the island’s lush interior to view the fauna and flora, including the giant baobab tree. As the day wanes, watch the sun go down on your dhow cruise, followed by dinner on the beach.
