Stayed at Wolwedans on the recommendation of a friend and enjoyed it immensely. They are very ecologically aware and a behind the scenes tour on our last morning was fascinating. The food was good - I wonder if four courses plus amuse bouche is entirely necessary in the desert it seemed slightly at odds with their ethos of simplicity. Portion sizes were perfectly judged and the staff were charming. Our guide, Jonathan was a lovely guy and the best we had during our two week trip. There are no power sockets in the tents, nor air conditioning nor hairdryers which may be an issue for some. Laptops and batteries can be charged in the office. We will definitely return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Dunes Lodge is perched on top of a dune plateau, overlooking panoramic vistas in all directions & capturing the beauty of the desert. The building style is a combination of wooden structures and canvas blinds, opening up to the desert beyond. The lodge reflects the ambience of a tented camp, but provides the comfort and protection of a permanent building. Each of the nine spacious chalets with en-suite bathrooms has a private verandah, which connects you to vast stretches of untouched sand. Sleeping with your canvas blinds open is like sleeping under the stars. The main complex consists of two lounges, a number of sundowner decks, a fireplace, a tea deck, a library, the wine cellar and two dining rooms. The lodge also has a swimming pool, suspended above the sand. All communal areas of the lodge open out onto decks with superb views. The variety of recreational space makes a visit both exciting & relaxing. To make the most of your view, we recommend staying three nights. ... more less
