Ragged-edged wooden ribs cradle each of the buildings at this remote lodge, making it appear as if the 10-villa property washed up on the low dune it occupies. The outward-leaning walls, clad in wood siding and punctured with porthole-like windows, enhance the nautical effect. Inside, the rough strand board paneling contrasts sharply with the luxe furnishings and décor of the main lounge. The accommodations have private decks and woodburning fireplaces but lack air-conditioning. Wi-Fi is available in the lounge but not in the guest villas. Memorable activities include desert walks to see dancing white lady spiders and endemic yellow-and-purple geckos, fishing, beach barbecues, ATV drives in the adjacent sand sea and sledding down the dunes. En route to the nearest airstrip, it’s possible to visit two small shipwrecks, a 1940s-era plane crash and an extremely boisterous seal colony.
