There is nothing quite like exploring untouched nature on foot. Far away from the rumbling and buzzing of tourists and hectic roads, yet so close to the Sossusvlei, a beautiful landscape presents itself, which wants to be discovered.Experience the unlimited vastness and beauty of the Namib, close to the Namib Naukluft Park at the Rostock Ritz Desert Lodge. Enjoy our warm and welcoming hospitality and personalized service. Let us spoil you.We accommodate our guests in 11 luxury African style bungalows, all being fitted with a separate toilet and spacious shower. The rooms are nestled into their natural environment and offer a seemingly endless view across the Namib, bathing plants and animals in luminous colours of light.…. and a swimming pool with the most magnificent view in the entire Southern Africa!Because of its unique setting, Rostock Ritz Desert Lodge serves to be the ideal base for self drive daytrips to Sossusvlei, especially for the individual traveller, wanting to escape bulk tourism.

We stayed at the RR on our first night of a two week Namibian trip and it was a very good place to start. The rooms each have fabulous views and are only a short walk from the main lodge area. The food was top class - something we came to expect across Namibia - and service excellent from Maria. The pool was beautiful and our stay was everything we were looking for. We had only one issue - and again, we experienced this across the country - which was a lack / very poor wifi. Sadly this is required due to poorly relatives at home and having to remain in contact with work. if it hadn't been for wifi, it would have been a 5 star review,

The lodge is very well situated between Sesriem and Swkopmund. The views are exceptional and the setting is beautiful. The chalets are rather small but are well equipped. Safe parking under the pergolas but quite a distance from the rooms. The pool area is stunning and peaceful. The main lounge/dining area is adequate with stunning views from the patio. Very good food.

A nice lodge, about 10 km off the main solitaire road for a great 1 night stay…all units Sleeping 2 are cozy and quite small, but offer great views of the surrounding landscape. Breakfast and dinner is offered in the lodge, food is very good and choice is also good. A nice touch after a days drive is the opportunity to go for a hike around the local area for sunset views, or use the pool too relax. Note the pool really ice old and the swinging relax chairs are not especially comfortable even though in the pictures they look cool. More normal sub beds would be good…(only 2 when we visited) If you want or need WiFi don’t count on it working - the guest Wi-Fi frequently is offline and only works, if it works, in the main building….

Not the fanciest lodge in Namibia, but the location and view are breathtaking. The room is convenient (no AC, no fridge), the pool is great ! The owner is very welcoming. There are beautiful walks around the lodge (best thing to stretch your legs after a long car ride). If you’re lucky some funny meerkats will entertain you during your breakfast! We definitely recommend to visit this place.

Campsite too far from the hotel which makes the site boring. But you can use the pool anyway. Nice views, pretty good food and very helpful receptionist (owner). Animals close to hotel. Clean and nice!

Rostock Ritz was the most amazing discovery on the road from Sossusvlei to Walvis Bay and a wonderful place to break our journey. We enjoyed the personal care of the owner, Hein and the lovely sunset drive and Cornelia, the manageres. We arrived before lunch and spent the hot afternoon allternating between the lovely rimflo pool and the hanging loungers. Dinner was excellent and quite remarkable so far from civilization!

Perfect stop over between Sousuvlei and Swakopmund. Open for lunch. Or sleep over. High quality food, fresh home bake bread for breakfast. Currently very dry but still worth it. Short hikings trails available. Staff are very friendly and helpfull.

One of our highlight (we French couple living in Berlin) during our 3 weeks tour through Namibia! Perfect reception with owner Yvonne, an incredible location, perfect organization, unique bungalows, nice breakfast and Dinner. The owners organized also nice hiking paths (walking yourself) through their tremendous location. We did some of them (1 to 5 hours hiking walks). A place we recommend absolutely to stay!

My husband and I spent one night at the Rostock Ritz and enjoyed our stay. The surrounding landscape was stunning (and a beautiful sunset), the owners and staff were friendly, and the room was clean and well appointed. Minor complaints are that the bathroom was a bit tight, and wifi in the rooms would be a nice touch. But the overall premises were lovely, and we really enjoyed the hikes on site, including the sundowner hike, which was relatively short and easy but the views exceeded our expectations, and the sunrise hiking trail, which was similarly stunning. I am in my third trimester of pregnancy and was able to handle those hikes workout a problem. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lodge to others.
