Welcome to Reef Resort

Xai-Xai is a quiet little beach town which comes to life during holiday seasons when most of the resorts in the area are full.

Located in Praia de Xai-Xai, a 3 hour drive from Maputo, Reef Resort offers comfortable, self-catering accommodation in spacious and airy 2 or 3 bedroomed beach houses.  All the houses have their own covered parking leading to a deck overlooking the ocean and a splash pool for enjoying sundowners, a braai area for outdoor cooking.  The houses all have an open plan living/dining area and equipped kitchen (with all the necessary amenities) for a comfortable ‘home away from home’ self-catering holiday.  We offer DSTV (a guesthouse package) and the bedrooms are air-conditioned and have mosquito nets over all the beds.


Houses and Lux villas

Reef Resort has 19 self-catering houses/villas, on the beach, in Xai-Xai. The houses are between a 3 and 5 minute walk from the beach. They are fully equipped for self-catering, serviced daily and all Villas have a sea view. There is a restaurant on the resort for those that do not want to self-cater. Each Villa has a private swimming pool and all houses have air-conditioned rooms. You can reach Reef Resort with a normal car, you do not need a 4×4.

Experience Reef Resort

Reef Resort’s fishing boat brings in the wonderful fresh daily catch from the rich ocean just meters away from the spacious 60-seater, double-storey restaurant. Fresh prawns, crayfish & calamari and the abundant ‘pantry’ of seasonal sub-tropical fruit and vegetables, including home grown herbs and vegetables, Café Pescador offers a unique dining experience.

There is an abundance of beautiful beaches in Praia de Xai-Xai, some with good swimming and snorkeling areas along the protective reef.

Reef Resort is ideal for a family holiday and Praia de Xai-Xai is an excellent fishing destination. With temperatures ranging between 30 and 40 degrees Celsius during summer and 15 to 30 degrees Celsius during winter, Mozambique can be regarded as an all year round holiday destination.
