The Namib, a vast and stunning place. Yes, it is a desert, fascinating geology, animals adapted to live in one of the driest places on earth and sunsets like no other place. Shortly after arriving at the Ritz, we found ourselves soaking in their pool looking out over the vista that is their back yard, their only neighbors, the mountains in the distance. The staff pays close attention to the details. The meals are delicious and the rooms are comfortable. The architecture is one of a kind. Yep, we loved our stay there. And, they do Meercat rescue, when you visit make sure you get the lowdown on that. Five stars? Oh yeah!

We were booked in for our penultimate night, on our way to Windhoek, before returning to Europe. With about 100kms to go to get to Rostock Ritz, the petrol tank on our hired Landcruiser came loose, and we found it hanging on by one bolt (that this happened on our hire vehicle and how it was dealt with is another story!). We manged to get to the lodge and the staff were incredibly accommodating, sparing no effort to help us. I rang the hire company and couldn't understand a word coming over the line, so handed the phone over and the staff dealt with everything, taking subsequent calls from the hire company. The proprietor checked over the problem with the vehicle and gave his assessment. We were allowed to stay in our rooms until a remplacement car arrived the next day (about 15h30). In short, everything was done to make our stay comfortable in spite of the problem with the vehicle. Curiously another group found themselves in the same situation while we were there - the lodge is the only stop-off in an isolated location. Now, on to the lodge. The most memorable point is the food. They have an excellent chef. This was without a doubt the best food we had anywhere in Namibia. Everything well prepared, from breakfast to dinner. The rooms are stone dome-like structures with a view on to the vast desert plain below. They are relatively small, with just a ceiling fan to keep cool, but functional. I give a strong recommendation for this lodge.

We only spent one night here, but enjoyed a beautiful lodge with an amazing view. We left early in the morning before breakfast on a well indicated hiking trail to see the sun coming up. The lady of the house is very friendly and pleasant to talk with. The food served in the restaurant was delicious. A place to come back to.

In the middle of nowhere is the best description I can give of this delightful Lodge. Blending well with its environment , offering good food in a "cave like" dining room and stunning views on the desert. Great

Very well run Lodge. We stayed in one of the suites, it was a bit pricey, but what an experience. The views and environment were amazing. A highlight from our holiday. We had one mosquito, and no more. Not any problem. Restaurant was very good, with a very friendly atmosphere. We made a day trip to Sossusvlei which was easy. Put your polarised shades on and the dunes were still red at 1100.
