Reef Resort Tours

Located on the Mozambican shores of Praia de Xai Xai, about a 4 hour drive from the capital city, Maputo, you will find Reef Resort. Comprised of 19, two and three bedroom villas and private houses, Reef Resort is the perfect holiday destination for families and groups. With a fully equipped kitchen, 2/3 en suite bedrooms, private balcony and personal plunge pool, all overlooking the Indian Ocean, it’s a great place to get away from it all. Take the day at your own pace, and if cooking on holiday is not your thing, the resort’s Café Pescador will make sure you’re well fed to take on a day of activities and fun!

Private pools

Beautiful private plunge pools can be found in each of Reef Resort’s villas and houses, set into the terraces and all boasting fabulous sea views, it’s the perfect spot to cool off from the African sun, or wallow as you sip on your cocktail, watching the sun go down. Hop onto the pool side deck chairs to top up your tan and read your book, ultimate holiday vibes!


Fresh cuisine

While the villas and houses are open for self catering, it’s certainly worth paying a visit to Reef Resort’s Café Pescador. Open 7 days a week and catering breakfast, lunch and dinner, you won’t need to lift a finger for your meals during your stay. Offering a selection of light meals, pizzas, curry, exquisite grill selection and delicious fresh seafood there’s plenty to keep you satisfied during your holiday.


Comfortable private villas

Just a 3-5 minute walk from Praia de Xai Xai beach, the Reef Resort private villas are perfectly equipped to house families or groups; with 2 or 3 spacious, clean and comfortable bedrooms with air conditioning and en suite bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, large terrace and private plunge pool.

  • Awesome experience

    We spent 2 nights in this fantastic resort.
    All the villas are well maintained, and the beds are comfortable with mosquito nets. They all have a private pool and a stunning view of the ocean ( we saw 2 whales breaching from our porch).
    The restaurant provides good-quality food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Highly recommended bobotie spring rolls and the fresh seafood platter.

    The staff is super friendly and provides excellent service.

  • What a great Place! 2 weeks here was not enough!

    Certainly one of the best places for a family holiday in Moz. Stunning beaches, ideal and safe for children. Great restaurant, luxury villas, super friendly and helpfull staff and management. Can’t be compared to any other lodge in the Xai-Xai area.
