Sossusvlei, Namibia - Premier 5
This acclaimed desert retreat is situated amongst camel thorn trees on the dry Auab riverbed in the Kulala Wilderness Reserve. The 11 climate-controlled, thatched villas merge seamlessly into the timeless desert landscape, with exquisite fittings and fixtures and innovative bleached decks each with a private plunge pool. The extensive use of neutral colours, gorgeous textures and natural light reproduce the soothing pastel tones of the desert. Each villa has a rooftop 'skybed' for romantic stargazing, with both indoor and outdoor showers. An elegant entertainment area includes al fresco fine dining as a highlight.
Varied activities aim at acquainting guests with the splendour, solitude and stark beauty of the Namib Desert, with excursions to Sossusvlei, and nature drives and walks providing awe-inspiring views of desert-adapted wildlife and plants. A balloon safari at extra cost offers a unique experience soaring silently above the desert, while quad biking takes place at one of the nearby camps.
