This Presidential Villa is part of Azura Benguerra, an eco-friendly, award-winning boutique hotel in the achingly beautiful Bazaruto Archipelago off the coast of Mozambique.

The resort’s 18 luxury beachfront villas have been entirely constructed by the local community. Each blends 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.

The Presidential Villa is the most private and secluded, and comes with its own butler/host and a private chef to ensure all your daily needs are met with ease.

The epitome of style and luxury, with its own unique décor, the villa boasts three en-suite bedrooms, a 16m infinity pool spanning the front of the villa, two beach salas, a media room and a wine bar. And of course being just steps from the beach means there’s plenty of space and privacy.

We particularly recommend enjoying a sundowner in the gorgeous treehouse while soaking up the panoramic views out to Bazaruto Island and the Indian Ocean.

There are activities aplenty to be enjoyed on the island, including turtle watching, fishing, horse riding and some of the best diving and snorkelling to be found in east Africa.

The stuff of which castaway fantasies are made.
