Azura Quilalea Private Island welcomes new management couple to the island

Azura Retreats have appointed Andrew Viljoen and Drienie Pieterse to the position of Management Couple at Quilalea Private Island in Northern Mozambique. They come to Azura Quilalea from Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge in South Africa, where Drienie was Lodge Manager and Andrew was Assistant Manager and Head Ranger. Previously they managed Royal Madikwe Game Lodge together.

‘We are delighted with the appointment of Andrew and Drienie’, says Stella Bettany Owner/Director of Azura Retreats, ‘their broad experience with high-end African boutique hotels will be invaluable to Azura Quilalea as we continue to strive to offer guests a unique island experience coupled with excellent accommodation and service’.

Andrew and Drienie bring with them a passion for nature, service, attention to detail and guest experience. Cuisine is a high priority for them and they like to try out new dishes at home, staying on top of new trends in order to make suggestions to the chefs and keep taste buds tingling.
