Swakopmund, Namibia
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

The highlight of our Sossusvlei trip, this lodge has stunning views and encourages you to simply sit and enjoy them. The accommodation was lovely if a little basic, the swimming pool was empty but the dinner was proper delicious Namibian food and the service was great. And did I mention the fabulous views??

This hotel is an oasis in a hot desert. Lush and cool with two beautiful pools. The rooms are cool and comfortable (although AC didn't work great). We were so happy to lounge by pool and drink fancy cocktail after long hot day at the dunes.

We really enjoyed our time at Namib Desert Lodge. It was a crazy drive to get there, but it was fun nonetheless. The food was good. The kids loved playing in the pool and walking around the hills outside of the hotel. Rooms were clean but could have used more air conditioning units for the double rooms.

This Lodge was by far the best, and most personalized service I have experienced. The staff went out of their way to greet us, and make our stay memorable. The food was excellent and the setting is breathtaking with the desert to to one side and cliffs to the other.

Namib Desert Lodge is about an hours drive from the Seisreim gate where we went to explore the Dunes - conveniently located. The accommodation is decent. Combine it with a night at Dune Star Camp which is located nearby.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this lodge. The location was close enough to the dunes that we had time to climb big daddy before it got really hot in the day. The staff were extremely helpful and the food was good.

We spent one night at the Namib Desert Lodge as a base for exploring the surrounding area and dunes. With 70 odd rooms and two pools the lodge was a hive of activity compared to the quiet of the dunes - the rooms were clean and quiet and the service was excellent.

We arrived at this lodge (staying at dune star camp next night) with 4 coaches in the carpark which as it turned out meant a corporate event was on which meant the pool and restaurant area were taken over. The place has 70+ rooms. Staff were focusing on the main group so I felt we were treated a little harshly...
