About Reef Resort

Reef Resort in Praia de Xai Xai offers self-catering accommodation in air-conditioned beach front houses situated between 100 m and 400 m from the beach. All houses have magnificent views of the ocean. Each house has a fully equipped kitchen including a gas stove/oven, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster, crockery, cutlery as well as utensils to cater for four, eight or ten guests.

We are building our own restaurant which will be completed by December 2013 and there are also other great restaurants and beautiful beaches, even pubs close by, within two minutes walking distance.

We have three different sized houses to choose from such as two bedroom/four sleeper houses which includes two single beds in each bedroom, one bathroom, an open plan living area where the kitchen is visible. There is a deck with a splash pool and a braai area. There is also covered parking for one vehicle.

The three bedroom/five to eight sleeper house includes a main bedroom with a queen-size bed and an en-suite bathroom. Bedrooms two and three have two single beds in each. There are also two built-in single beds in the living room, as well as a second communal bathroom and a large open plan living/dining area. There is a well equipped kitchen available for guests. Outside on the deck is a splash pool and braai area. Covered parking is available for two vehicles.

The six-ten sleeper bedroom house includes a queen-size bed in the main bedroom and an en-suite bathroom. Bedrooms two and three have three single beds in each. There are two built-in single beds in the living room, a second communal bathroom, as well as large open plan living/dining area. There is also a kitchen and a large deck outside with a splash pool and a braai area. Covered parking is available for two vehicles. This house has a similar layout to the eight sleeper house but is more spacious.

The resort is located in a very clean and leafy part of Xai Xai, on a hill. The sea views are great and the facilities tastefully decorated in neutral colours - AND VERY CLEAN. The apartment is serviced every day, and all the facilities you need to prepare your meals are available in the house. There is a private patio with own swimming pool and a braai area. We enjoyed prawns and seafood from the fish market and from the restaurant. If you do nothing else, have dinner at the restaurant. The food is Fantastic!! Please note that the road is really not good to go there - it needs urgent attentio...

We had a fantastic stay at Reef. The unit was clean and well kept. The views were absolutely breath-taking. The little book with info about Mozambique and the common Portuguese terms was a nice touch. Quad biking in Xai Xai is definitely a must do. :-)

Reef resort offers big and nice houses not far from the beach. Everything is kept clean, including the pool.However, the road to get there is really bad (actually I'm not quite sure it can be called a road) and it gets really difficult to go with a small/family car.

Very nice to relax after a long drive from the border.The check in was easy and the chalet clean and well equipped.We only stayed one night but should have stayed longer.

Things to do in and around Xai Xai

Wenela Tidal Pool

(10.5 km from Xai Xai)

Wenela Tidal Pool, two kilometres south of Xai-Xai, is a fascinating natural treasure. The tidal pool has a natural channel that leads underground into the ocean, creating a "blow-hole" effect that is something to be seen.

Uembje Lagoon

The Lagoa Uembje (Uembje Lagoon), or Sao Martinho as it was known during colonial times, is an amazing boating and watersports venue. Occasionally open to the sea, the lagoon is separated from Praia do Bilene by a long strip of sand dunes. Try...

Coconuts Bar

Kick back with an ice cold 2M beer at the beachfront Coconuts Bar in Complexo Palmeiras. Here you can watch DSTV or play a game of snooker.

Boa Vista

(41 km from Xai Xai)

Drive inside Bilene and take turn left to Villa Nhabanga. Follow Villa Nhabanga boards until you get the board "Boa Vista".
