Azura Benguerra Island
Dining, in different locations every day
Azura Benguerra focus on fresh local produce such as fish and seafood with irresistible signature dishes. Dining locations range from informal ‘foot in the sand’ dining to feasting in the comfort and intimacy of your own villa as well as dinners in the Jellyfish restaurant.
There is a special, more formal, seven course tasting menu at least once a week as well as a Mozambican evening.
For the wine connoisseur, the wine cellar is always stocked with fine wines from the owner’s vineyards, flown in from France’s Loire Valley.
The Jellyfish Restaurant is located in the main area of the hotel, and beautifully decorated with beaded jellyfish, all handmade by a community project.
Daily changing menus
Our menus are based on what is fresh and available, with a focus on light meals, simple ingredients, and lots of fresh fish and seafood. It’s a simple understated affair. We always offer a choice of dishes, and our chef will happily try to accommodate any personal requests that you may have.
Your host will set up a private dinner on the beach in front of your villa, surrounded by candles arranged in the sand, or you can choose to have this candle-lit on your deck or beneath your sala. The ultimate in romantic dining!
Private Wine Cellar
We have a fabulous wine cellar for special wine tasting events and themed dinners, and even
offer a selection of the owner’s wines, especially flown in from their Chateau in the Loire Valley, France.
Peri Peri Beach Club
Peri-Peri Beach Club encourages guests to spend days lounging at the beach or pool enjoying their favourite Mozambican cuisine, magnums of French Rosé wine, or creating their own cocktails through the specially designed mixology menu.
The beach club and bar incorporates a range of activities including an ocean facing swimming pool, personal grills where guests can sizzle their own seafood and on selected nights an open-air cinema. Other activities that are already on offer such as Paddle-Boarding can also be arranged from the bar. The beach club also has a Spa pavilion for African themed massages.
Azura Peri-Peri Beach celebrates Mozambique’s Portuguese history, and Portuguese influences can be seen in both the décor and on the menu.
