Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

That's useful when you forget your goggles but what if you're thinking "and?". You were shipwrecked in a previous life; you hate the wretched sea and all it's impending dangers and glooms. Fear not. Turn round. That's the town the centre. That's Swakopmund. And you're all of 60 seconds away. Go grab a flat white. Breathe in. You have a terra firma mind.

So you're in Swakopmund. A coastal city in Namibia. The sandy beaches face the Atlantic Ocean. You can get a room with a sea view at the Hotel Pension A La Mer. There's lots to do:  restaurants, museums, the historic jetty... and it's all an easy walkabout. The nearest airport is Walvis Bay Airport, which is 36km from the hotel.

You can take your sundowner at the hotel. The sky deck stares straight at the beach. You can see the jetty as well as historical buildings in the city.

There are 46 en-suite bedrooms and breakfast is included. 15 standard, 27 luxury and 4 executive rooms. Some are in the original house which was built in 1906.

All rooms have under floor heating and tea & coffee facilities.

Standard rooms - extra large double bed, private bathroom, a seating area and a patio/veranda. TV available on request.

Luxury rooms - bigger and have a sea view, a private bathroom, a seating area, TV and balcony. Interconnected rooms are available.

Executive Luxury room - even bigger, 30m squared with an extra large double bed, private bathroom, seating area and patio/veranda. It also has a sea view and TV. Interconnected rooms are available.

Swakopmund is large town or (tiny city) so there's shopping, an aquarium and museums to visit. There's an historic house, Hohenzollernhaus, which is good if you want to see German architecture. And the Martin Luther Steam Locomotive monument is just outside the city.

There's a lot to see and do at the coast. And the hotel will help you book trips in and around Swakopmund.

You can go fishing, visit a township, or go quad biking in the dunes. There's loads to do for adrenaline junkies. And heading to the Namib Desert is always a good idea.

A more unusual tour is The Little Five Tour. It's all about the flora and fauna which puts up and with this harsh, hostile environment. And flourishes. It's all about the little desert adapted animals. Not the big ones. We're talking snakes, spiders, chameleons, geckos, lizards and beetles. You can learn more about Namibian reptiles at the Snake Park in Swakopmund.

If you want to go to sea you could try a dolphin cruise. Go on a catamaran and dine on oysters and Champagne which is rather grand.

Want desert and sea? Greedy. Ok. The Boat & Sandwich Harbour Combo begins in Walvis Bay and you will have a morning boat cruise followed by a drive through the dunes to Sandwich Harbour.

Or get the view from above. Take a scenic flight over the highest dunes in the world.

Too frenetic? Want something calmer? Want to float through the air in a nice big basket? It's hot air ballooning for you. Splendid, splendid.
