Incredible Luxury Lodges of the Namibia’s desertscape
As one of the least densely populated places on earth, Namibia makes a great case for travelling to Africa right now. Quiet, peaceful, and scenic beyond belief, with landscapes that vary from stark Skeleton coastline to Mars-like desert dunes and sweeping open plains peppered with soft hills, its hotels and lodges are primarily built and designed to celebrate their remarkable setting. These three lodges offer sanctuary. Stars and stillness. The multi-award-winning 2019 redesign by Fox Browne Creative of and Beyond Sossuvlei Desert Lodge has put this existing destination newly on the map as an architectural must-visit. The staggering setting with panoramic views of the desert and mountains in the distance is the star, and yet the design of the lodge itself is remarkable.
The striking combination of rusted metal, rock and glass and combination of rounded and angular lines somehow simultaneously blends in and stands out of the landscape through a clever interplay of forms and spaces. Suites feel open and yet cocooning, in a muted palette of earth tones and glamorous lighting, with a constant connection at all times to the view and landscape beyond.
