Azura Retreats provides you with an ocean safari, including fantastic diving locations, enjoyable water activities, and whale watching.

Some of the Most Romantic Locations

At Azura, honeymooners are treated to a number of special perks, such as a bottle of sparkling wine upon arrival, an upgrade if possible, a romantic turndown, a dhow sail at sunset, and a significant discount off the standard cost for the bride on stays of five nights or longer.

One of the most romantic places in the world is Azura. The most significant vacation of your life should be spent on a desolate distant island paradise accessed by a breathtaking helicopter journey over the clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. This is the kind of honeymoon destination you picture: languid days spent swimming and unwinding, leisurely lunches with fresh food and unlimited wine, and romantic dinners on a beach under the stars.

 

Wining & Dining

We want you to never eat at the same restaurant twice. At Azura, eating is an integral part of the experience, whether it’s breakfast by the water, a picnic on a sand island, or dinner on a beach by candlelight. The hosts take great delight in their creative dining arrangements and thoughtful extras that make your stay memorable.

They provide a variety of the owner’s wines, notably those flown in from their Chateau in the Loire Valley in France, and a fantastic wine cellar for special wine tasting events and themed dinners ia also available.

The menus are centered on what is in season and fresh, with an emphasis on light fare, straightforward ingredients, and a lot of locally caught fish and seafood. It’s a low-key, straightforward affair. They always have a selection of foods, and the chef will gladly try to fulfill any special requests you may have. Due to the remoteness of the location, if something you really want is inaccessible we kindly ask for your understanding.
