Nordin's Lodge
Ranked #8 of 15 Specialty Lodging in Tofo
Reviewed February 1, 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed in a chalet a week of january 2013.
We were allowed to use the owners kitchen and were very happy to have a fridge in the room. There were a few issues with the hot water and a broken water pipe that flooded the bathroom, but that can happen everywhere. They immediately fixed the issues when it was pointed out.

It is located almost directly on the beach with a very nice view. Next door is Fatimas with cheap but good food.
Walking to the town was quick and easy.

Diving was amazing - saw tons of manta rays and a whale shark!

Room Tip: Go for a chalet

We came to Tofo and thought we should stay two nights, but ended up spending six. Bungalow right on the beach, you open the door and look at the water. You have your own table outside and can borrow beach chairs. Rooms have fridge and own bathroom. Mosquito net. The owner will do what ever he can to make your stay perfect. If you buy fish on the beach, the ladies at the place will cook it for you. Free coffee. We borrowed water-boiler. Both rooms with twin and double beds.
Price: 1500 medicais for double room.

A dive buddy and I booked a week in Tofo as part of a trip round Mozambique and South Africa. We booked everything over the web and used 'Tofo Travel' for booking accomodation. locationof Nordin's is greatbeing right on the beach. Rooms basic but have all you need though you do ened to ask to get sheets/towels changed. I would not recommend booking through Tofo Travel as we charged way more than what we would have paid had we just turned up (this was not high season). Additionally, Tofo Travel were to provide transport to/from Inhambane airport and they 'forgot'. Diversity Scuba were great as was the diving.

I have staid at Nordis for two nights.

The place is nice and quiet (we had no neibhors....)

It is very near the "city center" so you can walk to the main "restaurants" and "attractions".

It is a medium budget accomodation but has nothing less then the luxory ones (toilet in the room).

If you are a diver I reccomend Diversity Scuba as preferred operator.

Excellent value!
Moved here after a terrible experience at Fatima's nest.

Big rooms! The fridge is a plus. Right on the beach! Felt safe!

The view is amazing and the sound of the ocean super soothing!

Will remember it with the passion fruit that we devoured on the veranda!

A group of 9 of us recently stayed in Nordin's Lodge for 6 nights. We moved here after one horrific night in the round dorm at Bamboozi Beach Lodge. Mario (the manager) and the other staff are some of the most helpful and accomodating people you'll ever meet. The rooms are spacious, clean with all basic essentials and hot showers. Even better, they are located practically on the beach and a 5 minute walk from the local market and stalls. There are plenty of bars and restaurants a short distance away, the prices are extremely reasonable and I would 100% recommend Nordin's. Thank you Mario.

Stayed at Nordin's Lodge from march 19-March 30, 2007. I moved over from Hotel Tofo mar which ios about 60 meters south of this property.
Nordin's is directly on the beach with single older style bungalows and newer attached "double chalets". I stayed in the newer type of chalet. The room is large with a double or 2 singles, a wardrobe dresser, a refrigerator and a full bathroom. (Shower, toilet, sink) 24 hours electricity when there is electricity available. No generator. You have a hot water maker in the room as well as complimentary coffee, tea and cocoa. Mario is the "property manager", speaks good english and does an excellent job. Mr. Nordin comes in regularly. The staff will change your sheets and towels upon request, but do not have keys to the rooms. So, you ask them and they come. No problem. the veranda is large with a table and two chairs.
The property is well-maintained and there is "security" in the evening. The property is well-lit and I would rate it as being very safe. No restaurant or food available.
It is very central about 10 meters from Diversity Scuba and 300 meters or so from Dino's Beach Bar.
I couldn't have been happier and truly spent hours just watching the waves roll in after some excellent diving. Would recommend it to all.
