The luxurious houses which comprise Oriel Niek in the Barra area of Mozambique offer guests top notch self-catering accommodation in tastefully decorated thatched houses.

The 4 bedroom houses have private splash pools, en-suite bathrooms and awesome sea views from the bedrooms and entertainment deck.  


The newly built 1, 2 and 3 bedroom houses are situated in the hollow behind the 4 bedroom houses.  These houses do not have a seaview but share a communal swimming pool and all bedrooms are en-suite.

The Whapa-Whapa Restaurant/bar specialises in serving up mouth-watering fresh seafood.  There is another pool on the deck of the restaurant.  The restaurant/bar is open until fairly late in season,


The secluded beach is a short walk down the dune and at low tide, hours can be spent collecting shells and exploring the marine life captured in the rock pools.


Visitors will be hard pressed to find comparable Mozambique lodgings in this area at Oriel Niek’s very reasonably priced rate.


There are numerous restaurants and bars and activities in the vicinity but guests will take the greatest pleasure in returning home to the tranquility, beauty and privacy of Oriel Niek Lodge.

The holiday was really awesome and would most probably give Oriel Niek a 5 out of 5. We just had some problems with hot water.

With regards to overall rating, it was wonderful?


There were a few things that I would like to mention


Mug handles where broken off and most of the mugs are chipped

Braai utensil was broken

Big pan did not have a handle

Linen could have been changed at least once, (I had to ask for the sheets to be washed)

No pump on swimming pool, so water did not circulate

Fridge/Freezer, the freezer did not freeze, so we had to ask for a replacement

TV, was not working, they brought another TV two days before we left but we could not get the dstv working?  


The helper we had” Lutchiano “, he was great, friendly

Service – 6/5 Friendliness – 6/5 Cleanliness – 4/5 Facilities – 4/5 Overall – 6/5

I feel if I give a 5/5 on some of the above, then I would still not be able to show how great this vacation was for me, so from there the 6!! The only problem and it isn't something that will keep me from going again is the access to the beach. Down, no problem, up, BIG PROBLEM. The pictures on your website do not give you any idea of the task in hand if you want to go and have a quick dip in the sea. Once down at the beach you need to be very wary of the rocky terrain that lies beneath the lovely whitewash of the Indian Ocean, but enough of this complaining about the natural wonders of Mozambique!!

While I'm busy I just want to extend my gratitude to the 3 lovely blokes, Luciano, Bernard and Fernando, in helping us with our daily tasks in hand like dishwashing, cleaning of fish, prawns/ crayfish etc. Without them I'm pretty sure the stay would not have been as enjoyable!

All and all we had a great time, thank you very much to Nols and his family who helped us out with transport etc!!! 
M. du Preez, South Africa, October 2010

Wonderful holiday! Exceeded all our expectations and much more... Thank you again for everything!

A. Ziehl-Owens, South Africa, July 2010

Will recommend it to all my friends.

Travel through Inhambane and head towards Barra.  At the Barra cross roads continue straight towards Barra.  After approximately 7kms on dirt road, turn right onto beach sand road (deflate your tyres at this point) and follow Bali-Hai signboards. Take the sand road right (just before the Bali Hai turn off) and follow windy sand road for approx 500m.  Oriel Niek are the first houses reached (painted a mustard yellow colour).
