Your Family at Azura
Azura at Quilalea Private Island is a wonderful place for a family holiday. Children and teens will be spoilt for choice when it comes to spending time here with us.
Whilst we don’t have the traditional kids and activity clubs you find in larger hotels, we offer a host of activities for children and families to participate in. Our focus is on the amazing pristine environment here at Azura. There is so much to experience and learn about. All under the guidance of our experienced and knowledgeable team.
Children can enjoy seeing interesting marine life above and below the water, including the fantastic opportunity to see turtles lay their eggs or hatchlings take their first steps to the sea during nesting season. We have humpback whales and dolphin cruising our shores. And a house reef that just begs for young explorers to don their mask and fins and explore the underwater world. Snorkelling, fishing and scuba diving are all fabulous activities for children to undertake. Little ones as young as 4 can learn to snorkel under the careful guidance of our snorkelling instructors. Older children and teens will love to learn to scuba dive at our dedicated Padi 5 star dive centre, with Discover Scuba courses offered from age 10 upwards. Or go fishing and have your catch of the day served for supper, always a real highlight of your stay with us.
For the very young, there are soft white sand beaches for sandcastle building, and easy swimming conditions at the main beach. Older children may be interested in the giant baobabs, or learning about our community projects, and young ornithologists can try and spot our 134 species of birds. You can take a step back in time at cultural Ibo Island, kayak the island or the mangroves, go sailing on a traditional dhow, hop to neighbouring islands for long lazy picnics, or spend an evening learning about the stars.
We do ask that younger children should dine ‘in villa’ to respect the privacy of our other guests, and our chef will meet with you on arrival to discuss any particular dietary needs you may have. They are very adept at keeping our younger guests happy, and meal times are of course completely flexible to suit your needs.
