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.

Access to this converted lighthouse - made obsolete by the ever-extending peninsula - is along 32km of 4x4 track through eerie salt pans and across a pancake-flat sandbank. Or you can get to the hotel by boat across the RAMSAR-listed lagoon famous for its seabirds, flamingoes and sun-worshipping seals.

Port side, the icy Benguela current stirs up foaming waves and buffeting winds that fuse with the dry desert air to form the coastal fog that rendered this lighthouse vital for so many years.

Starboard, Walvis Bay lagoon broods, teeming with life gorging on the nutrient rich Benguela upswell: birdlife meets sealife meets resident jackals in misty mornings and ochre evenings.

Despite being in the tempest - what lighthouse isn't? - Bertus and Christa run a tight ship, all the while making you feel captain on deck. In fact, all nine suites have their own private deck, not least of all, the penthouse-style Captain's Cove, which is open plan and has a 360-degree panoramic view.

The suites are individually decorated with plush contemporary finishes, warm desert colours and silky textures. Glass sliding doors open onto the sand and offer views of an endless horizon; and you can just as easily shut out the maelstrom and watch the ships go by from the comfort of your armchair behind double-glazed windows.

Pelican Point Lodge is a unique and refreshing stop after the dusty heat of the Namib when travelling from Sossusvlei. And if you need that extra dose of peace and tranquility, spend another night and take advantage of all this space. Space to walk, think, sit and ponder life's greater mysteries. And to tuck into your picnic hamper. Just don't forget to breathe.
