Move over Maldives, Mozambique is chic

If you're wondering where to book your winter sunshine holiday, take a leaf out of the more adventurous stars' books. Mozambique looks to be topping the destination guide as a must do location. The private islands of the northern Quirimbas archipelago and rural charm of Quilalea are receiving more than a little attention at the moment.

One of the newest entries on the resort map that's shot straight into the hottest stopovers is Benguerra, in the Bazaruto archipelago. This year travellers can pamper themselves at Azura, the country’s first luxury "eco-boutique retreat". Built and operated in partnership with the local community, it has just 15 villas, each with their own infinity pool and designed for the ultimate in pampering and privacy.

Boasting excellent cuisine and service and a unique African spa, i'ts set itself up as the perfect island getaway in this up and coming African hotspot.

We predict Mozambique will be clambering its way up the destination charts pretty quick, so plan a trip before the C listers and celebrity pap squads get there.
