You have to go to experience it. Untouched beaches, great service team, Unique scenery with evergreen trees bordering desert dunes, island hopping from one untouched island to another, scuba diving/snorkeling with big fish... One of the most picturesque and romantic places I've been to.

It is difficult to know where to start when reviewing our recent six nights at Azura, Beguerra Island, as everything was absolutely perfect and our stay there was a wonderful way to relax after eight nights safari in South Africa. As others have commented, the short helicopter flight from Vilanculous to the Island is a great way to start your...

We stayed at the Azura after being on safari. It was incredible. We arrived by helicopter -- which just makes you feel cool -- and were immediately blown away by the turquoise ocean, and the always-friendly staff. The villas are well maintained and quite spacious. Villas come with an outdoor shower, an infinity pool, a back deck and a cabana...
