They don't even have a website so I would not risk it! There are hundreds of forum posts from folks that paid for a vacation in 2017 only to find out that the resort was "under construction" with no completion date in site. Don't add to their numbers.

Air Canada Vacations is offering packages for as early as October 28. 7 days for $2219 per adult. October 30 is much cheaper at $1579 per adult.

this looks like an Air Canada Vacations thing. If I do a google search for Azura Beach Resort Samara, the top result is Air Canada Vacations.

They are taking reservations and payment for their one week package including flight from Toronto to Liberia airport and back. First available is October 28.

I also tried TripAdvisor, Hotels.com and Expedia, they won't give you a reservation.

Thanks! I checked with Brenda from the Info Center. She said the resort is scheduled to open by the end of the year...no confirmed date though. I’ll hang back and wait to see if/when it’s up and running.

The way things are going with this resort, I would never book it until it actually opens.

My question exactly!

Recently contacted the Samara Tourist Board with this question. Talk about a wonderful service story.

Brenda Dragonne, it's founder and owner, replied immediately. They were invited for an inspection this past weekend. Hotel is progressing well and while they were told the hotel would be ready mid November, she felt this was ambitious but felt it would be ready by end of year. If you want more information, I would greatly recommend getting in touch with them directly. They have been absolutely amazing. Something I would have expected from the Tour Operator namely Air Canada who is promoting it. Anyway if anyone is interested in booking tours, hotels, etc. please visit their website. www.SamaraInfoCenter.com

I give them a 5 Star in Service.
