Nothing to add - if you look for a trendy, stylish, nature-minded and chic accomodation in Swakopmund the Desert Breeze Lodge is your place. Have been spending a night in the "Villa" - what a fantastic wake-up with a spectacular view into the morning sunrise-drenched colours of the sand dunes. Bungalows are very well appointed, with lots of space throughout... More

After a night camping in Spitzkoppe this was a welcome chance for creature comforts together with a beautiful setting. The rooms are actually little self contained flats with a room and bathroom spaced out with uninterrupted views over a dry river bed and rolling sand dunes. Waking up you can open your eyes to the sunrise spreading its rays across... More

Desert Breeze Lodge is a wonderful lodge to stay in if you are a traveler who likes a peaceful environment whilst being close to the town and facilities of Swakopmund. My son and I had the privilege of staying in one of the free standing bungalows as well as the Villa. Both accommodations were very comfortable and "funky". We loved... More

My husband and I spent the last 2 nights of our Honeymoon at Desert Breeze last month...what a truly unique experience. Staff were exceptionally friendly, warm and welcoming. The bungalows are absolutely beautiful and designed very well, all with amazing views of the vast desert. The staff assisted in making dinner reservations for us at the best restaurants in town...

The "Desert Breeze" is a collection of smart, modern, free standing bungalows, overlooking the (dry) Swakop river and the Namib Desert "sea". Each bungalow is a large room, with a fireplace and a spacioius bathroom, with large bath towels. Each bungalow has a view, and they are spaced enought apart so you are not looking into someone's window - on... More

After 2 weeks of camping and 4WD-ing through the north western part of Namibia we thoroughly appreciated the creature comforts and services offered by this hotel. It was our launching pad for some very fun activities with our two kids (15 and 13) that the concierge service found us the perfect living desert tour, quad biking and go karting adventures... More

Spent two nights here while visiting Swakopmund in August 2014. You get a standalone cottage with privacy, views and working fireplace. There is internet in the rooms as well as the main lodge. Breakfast was fantastic with great views and spacious surroundings. Will stay there again next time am in town.

I am late writing this review - I stayed at the Desert Breeze in Aug 2013 and was blown away by the quality of accommodation and the friendly staff. I actually hid a geocache on this location years before and it can still be found just below the property along the river bank. I hope to return again someday soon... More

Beautiful view at the desert (you can easily leave the hotel and go for a walk in the dunes), very friendly and helpful staff, very nice and spacious cottages with beautiful design and details. Best breakfast miles around. Don't hesitate to ask for tips and bookings in the region. You can blindly follow their dinner recommendations. Great internet connection, free... More
