One of our all-time favorite Namibian lodges has had the most magnificent revamp – and we can’t wait to head over to the spectacular desert region of Sossusvlei to experience it for ourselves.
Nestled deep in the heart of Namibia’s ancient Namib Desert, &Beyond Sossusvlei Private Desert Reserve is a world of vast spaces, endless horizons and extraordinary clarity of light that makes this area one of Africa’s most compelling landscapes.
A spectacular masterpiece of glass, rock and steel pavilions with a bold geometric structure at its center, the lodge extends over vast dunes and gravel planes, in perfect harmony with its elemental surrounds.
Overlooking the pristine natural terrain, 10 exquisite suites offer the sophistication of simplicity and the two-bedroomed ‘Star Dune’ Suite is ideal for families or groups of friends, who prefer more privacy.
The guest area features floor to ceiling, frameless glass panels that fold away to reveal unobstructed desert vistas.
An interactive kitchen design allows guests to create their own dishes and a fine selection of wines are the perfect complement to the most divine feasts.
Other signature features include a one-of-a-kind gym, a two-part wellness center offering a treatment room and a private spa-bath, as well as a wet treatment room. The Lodge Shop displays Namibia’s finest craft offerings.
