If we had to sum Azura Quilalea up in one word - 'paradise' would really be it. From flying in via helicopter over crystal waters and sandy beaches, to meandering your way through the middle of the island down quiet, shady paths admiring the beautiful...More

We were extremely lucky whilst there to swim with dolphins...More

Thank you very much for your question. At Azura Quilalea Private Island we offer Kaskazi Villas and Kusi Villas, 4 of each. The differences between the two types are that the Kusi Villas have a better location on the island, an outside shower and a hammock. 4 Kaskazi Villas and are located on the side of the island that has sunrise, 1 Kusi Villa is located on the same side of the island and has a sunrise and sunset view from its deck. The other 3 Kusi Villas are located on the other side of the island, offering a sunset view directly from their deck. Snorkelling and diving right off the beach is done on the main beach, located on the same side of the island as the 3 Kusi Villas. But keep in mind that Quilalea Island is a small island (it is 35 hectares in total, and it takes 45 minutes only to walk around the island), with all villas located not far from the main beach. The furthest villa away from the main beach takes only a few minutes to walk to the beach.
Privacy is excellent in all villas, as we have natural bushes and trees between the villas. For your family looking for 3 villas I would suggest looking at the 3 Kusi Villas, they are located around the same beach. Can I help with you with your enquiry perhaps for dates in August? Please do contact us on +27 11 467 0907 and I hope we can welcome you to Azura Quilalea Private Island in August.
