We found this lodge via StayToday meaning we got a very good price. We had a look at the web-page and had high expectations. Luxury lodge at a bargain price. Wow! Unfortunately this is a beautiful lodge making the same mistakes (and more) as most Namibian lodges. They spend a fortune on the building, the rooms and the interior of... More

We stayed there for 2 nights in the beginning of April and had a very nice experience. The room was big and nicely decorated. The atmosphere was right and the service was excellent. I had asked the kitchen if they could prepare a birthday cake for my wife the second evening as we were going to eat at the lodge.... More

... for the noise. Well located on the Esplanade, close to THE best restaurant in Walvis Bay (Lyon des Sables), Egombo is a lovely little B&B jewel in a rather sad looking city. Pink flamingoes on the bay, just across the street and a most friendly and helpful staff. The only problem: trucks passing non stop between 0700 and 1700,... More

Egumbo Lodge is beautiful with its thatched roof, heavy wooden beams, polished dark wood furniture, personable staff, chef, swimming pool, free wi-fi, business center (loft), sunset view over the calm waters of the lagoon with its pink pelicans and flamingoes. After work with a cold Windhoek beer and sun streaming in through the windows couldn't be more relaxing. Dinner prepared... More

We got married, and stayed there for a few days. Everything was awesome, the food, the service, everything! This place is the best lodge in the coast. Thanks Xana for those lovely days, we will come back. Patrizio Pausini

While on business in Walvis Bay, I stayed at Egumbo for six weeks (Jun-Aug). First off, the place reeks of authencity- attention to detail with regard to furnishings and design is amazing. To walk into the main living/dining area is truly a trip back in time- exactly what you'd expect to find in a turn-of-the-century African lodge. The rooms are... More

I've been travelling many times to Walvis Bay but this was the first time I lodged at Egumbo Lodge. I was really impressed by the place. The lodge has been recently refurbished. Room was excellent , very clean and cosy. People were very friendly. Breakfast was excellent too: try the omelette with ham, cheese and mushrooms. Gorgeous. Overall rating is... More

Probably the best hotel on the coast. Beautifully decorated with large rooms and a good living room/dining room with a fine view of the bay and the pelicans. You feel like placed in a movie setting. The food is excellent too, and you clearly notice the Mediterranean influence from the Spanish owners.
