Welcome to the Namib Desert
Take a breather from your hectic schedule to reconnect with yourself and nature
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 centre, 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 complements sublime meals.
Other signature features include a one-of-a-kind gym, a two-part wellness centre 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.
