Neuras is one of four winemakers in Namibia and that seems to be their USP. Rooms dark and a bit worn down. Bathroom from the 1970 . . . . Staff totally uninterested. When I told them that the water heater in the bathroom was not working they just shrug their shoulders. Food was OK but not great. Wine tour was a joke! Guide had no idea how their products were produced. I learned that Rum is made from grapes. The best of the tour was the wine tasting at the end. The tour guide just poured us four glasses of wine, confused the different blends and left without a word. Our recommendation would be to drive 50 km westwards and take a much better lodge their.
Not really a bad guest house, but not as good as the other places we've been to in Namibia. Also a bit too expensive for what is offered. Our "luxury" unit was not exactly luxurious. Breakfast was good but dinner not so great and a bit chaotic. There seems to be a single cook preparing the dishes for all the guests. The owners showed their face only upon checkout.
l'apparenza è d'impatto, se poi ci si sta a dormire e mangiare le cose rientrano nella normalità e sinceramente il prezzo pagato sembra un pò eccessivo (ho pagato meno l'Hilton a Windhoek). Personale poco attento. Piacevole l'ambientazione, i vigneti nel deserto e la degustazione del vino prodotto in loco
We heard of the winery while on a visit to Sossusvlei staying at Little Kulala. Having some knowledge of wine and winemaking I was astounded that wine could be made on the edge of one of the driest deserts in the world. It turns out that position of the winery - slightly elevated with mountains nearby and the fact that it sits over a geological fault that provides two or three natural springs has enabled the British Born ex-Shell business man produce some 1000's of bottles of wine a year. It is well worth visiting for a half day or even staying there if you wanted to use it as a base to travel the area. The wine making area is tiny but the wine is great - all amazing for the vineyards location. We had lunch which was generous in proportions and the wine tasting went down very well. Well recommended.…
The staff at Neuras can spoil your trip. They are upset when you ask them something, and barely want to help. apart from that its a lovely location, the rooms were nice and clean, and the area is lovely to walk around.
