Great location for Deadvlei

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Sept 2023via mobile
Great location, right next to the park entrance.
Rooms were nicely done and lovely views out to the desert. Bonus to see animals coming through the lodge and at waterhole

Negatives, it has a lot of coach parties that nominate breakfast and dinner. The service was not so good (particularly bar staff) as in other lodges around Namibia, this maybe related to the large groups.

The chalets are situated amongst lovely grounds and our one was right on the edge of the dessert with lovely views not impeded by other chalets.
The food was plentiful, buffet, with freshly cooked meat of your choice. I did hear one other guest say he felt intimidated by the large queues and I could understand what he meant as there were many many guests.
The rooms were generous with a marvellous bathroom and the staff polite and friendly

Our stay here was magic. Location is stunning and the chalet was divine and well appointed. Food and service excellent, to the extent that the sandstorm was catered for. Tour and guide to Deathvlei and the many big dunes was a great experience.

Room tip: Bring along warm clothing for chilly evenings and morning on desert drives in winter

This hotel is my favorite place in the whole world. It is so spectacularly beautiful. Oryxs walked past our room in the evening and sociable weavers nested out back. This is the most special place and I can’t recommend it enough. Wonderful team

The lodge was a great place to unwind after a drive and climb at the dunes. The individual lodge type room was comfortable and sufficient. We were able to see a few oryx roaming about just outside our private entrance deck. There is also a watering hole on the property which is lit up at night but we personally did not witness any animals there. There is outside seating in the bar area and it is a great place to unwind and look at the sunset and again the oryx. The dinner buffet held outdoors (still warm enough in July) was one of the best. The seating is reserved and well co-ordinated by the staff. There were grilling stations for meat which included some game, a grilling station for fish as well as a section for stir fry with noodles. The salad and dessert bars were generous and had a good variety of selections. The breakfast buffet is also very good (indoors due to cold temp) with ample selection as well as an eggs "your way" cooking station.

Room tip: Try to snag a room away from the parking area which face the "back" where you may see some wildlife.
