Inside, however, is far less imposing and the courtyard has a soothing cover of grass and a large swimming pool. Not horses and sack-clad mercenaries arming themselves for battle as you might be expecting.
The Moorish theme continues into the 27 en suite rooms with light and earthy décor in different shades to echo the endless views outside the arched Gothic portrait windows. Modern amenities that no prince heir should be without including air conditioning, a safe, a mini bar, bath robes and a coffee and tea station.
Most of the rooms look onto an enviable oasis. You'd forget that just beyond the walls, you're in the world's oldest desert and one with an impressive night sky. For those looking to sleep out under the stars, book 1 of 2 additional sky rooms, open-air, under the stars. This is booked in addition to either an Oasis or Camelthorn room as this is weather dependent.
Sossusvlei excursions; quad bike tours; nature drives; scenic flights; hot air ballooning
The wellness spa is a unique feature and the food, service, amenities and activities are excellent.
Daily excursions to Sossusvlei are the main activity of the day. You're only 21km from the Sesriem entrance gate into the park. Your start is early to catch the best light and the outing is followed up with a hearty and well-earned breakfast. There is also quad biking, nature drives, scenic flights and hot air ballooning.
