Wolwedans Desert Lodge is a 'live' hospitality training facility leading the way in a long term vision for tourism. Previously known as Wolwedans Dunes Lodge, the new Wolwedans Desert Lodge has undergone a shake up, and comes back as our hospitality training facility. This is part of the Wolwedans Desert Academy based at the Village at Wolwedans.
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 raised on platforms above the dunes.
Desert Lodge offers a spacious main area consisting 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, which is suspended above the dunes behind the lodge with 360 degree views.
All communal areas of the lodge open out onto decks with superb views. The variety of recreational space gives you plenty of options for relaxing in a quiet corner or connecting with your fellow guests.
The tented rooms are spaced apart and orientated in a sensitive manner to the environment. Each of the nine spacious tented rooms are designed so that your bedroom and bathroom look out over your verandah to the views of the desert and mountains beyond. The view from your tented room is of paramount importance and hence we have designed the space so it can be enjoyed from where ever you are. We recommend that you sleep with your canvas blinds open to feel the soft evening breeze and marvel at the vast star-studded sky.
Desert Lodge is ideal for families with 3 tented family rooms that have a second twin bedded room adjacent to the main bedroom. The two rooms share a bathroom and are only suitable for families.
