Travelers' Choice
The lodge is located in the famous Skeleton Coast Central Concession between the Hoarusib and Hoanib Rivers in the Skeleton Coast Park, only 45 km north of Mowe Bay. The lodge is situated on the southern bank of the Huarusib River Mouth, nestled between the dunes with a view of the Atlantic Ocean where the cold Benguela current pushes a refreshing breeze over the shipwreck shaped cabins. Self-Drive Clients Clients will enter the Skeleton Coast National Park and will be driving along a gravel road towards Möwe Bay. This is where the client’s pick-up will take please. Please note: The roads are gravel roads and are subject to the weather and wind that might affect the road conditions. Therefore, self-drive clients are advised to drive a high clearance and 4x4 vehicle, especially between Terrace Bay and Möwe Bay. The last cellphone signal for communication and petrol station will be in Terrace Bay.

To stay here is a once in a lifetime 5 star eco luxury experience! Located very remotely in the dessert with view of the atlantic a 15 minute drive away. Not often you see this rare combination of location, architecture and top notch service. The closest airstrip for small 1 engine planes is about 1,5 hours away by car. Rooms are housed in cabins that resemble a shipwreck. All cabins are spacious and have a great view, a well designed bedroom, a great bathroom and have a little outside terrace. You have all amenities you might need at hand. In the night you hear the silence and you are overwhelmed by the beauty of the stars in the sky. Public spaces are tastefully furnished and decorated. There is a very chic and cosy vibe everywhere. Food is fantastic and service friendly, attentive and professional. They offer all sorts of activities (like sundowner in the desert, quad rides in the dunes, 4x4 drives in the canyon etc) with experienced and friendly guides.

Obviously one the best Lodge we've been in Namibia. This lodge is a challenge by itself, in the middle of nowhere, remote, surrounded by huge dunes, facing the atlantic ocean. Every details are well thinking, a tastefull expresso at the sun set makes you feel at home. The Chalet is well furbished, cosy like a cocoon. All activities from the Lodge are great (quad, sundowners, canyon...) made by experienced and friendly guides. You will love that place, I highly recommend it.

This is a totally unique experience - a hotel in the middle of nowhere, amid the desert. The road here from a small airport takes about 1 hour 20 minutes and on the way there isn’t a single hint of human life. More amazing it is to see this chic lodge hotel here. Construction of the hotel reminds of a shipwreck but inside it is clever eco luxury. It is a 5 star level service and comfort. 10 separate lodges with shower, spacious rooms, all amenities you might need. I don’t often meet this kind of comfort in chic hotels in top locations. If you ever a get a chance to visit it - try to do it. Also the ocean here is amazing. Wild and beautiful. It takes 10-15 minutes to drive from the hotel to the beach and the hotel offers this service free of charge.

One of the best parts of our holiday, cannot recommend this lodge enough. Set in a very remote location and after many hours of travel it was well worth it. Our cabin was huge, decorated beautifully and had everything you needed. The bathroom was simply luxurious. Waking up to fresh jackal and hyena foot prints each morning around the cabin and looking out into the coastal wilderness, just divine. The food was delicious and great choice and the staff couldn’t do enough for us. Always friendly and very helpful. If you want total isolation in luxurious surroundings this place is perfect.
