We stayed here for 2 nights in March. It had been raining before (they said first time in a few years) and the landscape was just stunning. It takes another 2 hrs from Sossusvlei driving further south, but the trip is worth it! The staff is very friendly, we had a great guide advising us what game drives to take at what time.
We stayed in the suite and should have stayed at least one more night to be able to enjoy the view from the suite, the bed on the veranda, the 'library room', etc etc.
The food was wonderful, and you can have a chef preparing any meal for you at the suite. We did this for breakfast one day and it was very special. The other nights we had dinner with the other guests in the restaurants. Very tasty and relaxing atmosphere.
The landscape is surreal, very beautiful, and there are even all kinds of animals. Something we had not expected. Sundowners overlooking different valleys completed a perfect stay!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Dunes Lodge is perched on top of a dune plateau, overlooking panoramic vistas in all directions & capturing the beauty of the desert. The building style is a combination of wooden structures and canvas blinds, opening up to the desert beyond. The lodge reflects the ambience of a tented camp, but provides the comfort and protection of a permanent building. Each of the nine spacious chalets with en-suite bathrooms has a private verandah, which connects you to vast stretches of untouched sand. Sleeping with your canvas blinds open is like sleeping under the stars. The main complex consists of two lounges, a number of sundowner decks, a fireplace, a tea deck, a library, the wine cellar and two dining rooms. The lodge also has a swimming pool, suspended above the sand. All communal areas of the lodge open out onto decks with superb views. The variety of recreational space makes a visit both exciting & relaxing. To make the most of your view, we recommend staying three nights. ... more less
