Places to stay in Mozambique

Azura offers a brilliant range of top-market luxury accommodation units. Here, guests can enjoy all the creature comforts you could expect from a deluxe boutique resort, accented by locally sourced beams and traditional artwork beneath a thatched jekka roof.  Each suite is just a couple of steps away from the beach, but at the same time offers much privacy. Snuggled amongst the indigenous gardens is a haven for guests, providing peace and tranquility where you can feel at one with nature. Take a stroll down to the unspoiled white beaches and enjoy the cool breeze from the azure ocean beyond. Spend time unwinding on comfy cushions on your daybed or tan in seclusion and cool off in your sparkling plunge pool. Guests can enjoy dinner on their patios or sip on delicious cocktails in their beachside Sala as the sun begins to set. Here, you can feel completely at ease as you relax in your bath and admire the view, or shower beneath the star-studded African sky.

Ranked as one of the top ten most romantic places in the world, and most recently voted the 3rd best beach property in the  continent, Kaya Mawa provides guests with fantastically luxurious Mozambican accommodation. Each room here is individually designed in partnership with Katundu Textiles, a workshop established on the island in order to empower single mothers. As a result, the lodge is absolutely stunning and has a modern rustic, yet somewhat chic, atmosphere. The standard rooms are for those who simply wish to unwind and bask in the beauty of Lake Malawi from the gorgeous deck, which also makes for excellent sun tanning or a romantic meal in the evening. The premium rooms offer guests panoramic vistas down the lake and across to Mozambique. They offer three split level decks and a plunge pool with seating for two. The houses here offer big bedrooms with a mezzanine sundowners spot, twin showers and a bath with a view over the deck to the pool. The houses can accommodate a family of four, and provide guests with more fantastic views that make for exquisite star gazing opportunities.
