Azhari, a private & luxurious Beach Suite, with stunning views over the Indian Ocean. The perfect place for relaxation, romance, peace & recovery. Set in a beautiful garden with stunning giant Baobab & PalmTrees, just a few footsteps to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Ideal for honeymooners, couples or singles. Relax, lay back by your own pool or beach bay and drift away with the sound of the ocean. Our guests always say, 'We don't want to leave' :-) + a great Breakfast incl.

The space
The Azhari Suite was originally named after a trading dhow and its first Indian owner. The dhow was made in India, at a place called Kachi Mandu in the early 1930s, predominantly from Himalayan Teak timber. Her maximum carrying capacity was 450 tonnes and she spend many years trading between the ports of Asia, Qatar, Iran, Dubai, Somalia, Bahrain & Djibouti. For most of the 1970’s, until her death on Diani Beach’s outer reef, this large trading Dhow used to carry bulk amounts of rice, sugar cooking oil, cement and other trading goods, mostly sailing to East African ports using the Indian Ocean seasonal trade winds. In May 2015, during a storm, M.V. Azhari lost power and ran aground on the reef of Diani Beach, almost directly opposite to what is now the Azhari Suite. No one died, but all trading goods and the Dhow were lost. During this time we managed to reclaim, from the owner (at considerable expense), most of the Dhow timber beams, which were then re-used to build this luxury & unique beach retreat. The Steel bolts & nails on display in the coffee table, are original and were also recovered from some of the dhow timber pieces. The sandbank on which she ran aground is clearly visible on a low tide, looking North from the Beach suite. There are still remnants of the wreck including the keel on the sandbank and surrounding reef, which makes for an interesting snorkelling trip on a low tide.
