This spectacular lodge re-emerged after a refurbishment in 2019 with an entirely environmentally friendly approach. Designed to merge into its surroundings, each suite is set along the curved escarpment, opening onto vast desert views. Each is well-equipped with private verandas, plunge pools and cosy living areas with a fireplace. An added bonus is the moveable skylight above the bed and glass rain shower offering epic 180-degree vistas. For a different option, the two-bedroom Star Dune Suite is ideal for families and groups of friends.

The communal area represents an architectural masterpiece of rock, glass and steel with a central island bar, luxurious sitting room and interactive kitchen. In this wonderfully remote location, reconnect with nature and soak up the unrivalled silence. Beneath an International Dark Sky Reserve, experience superb light clarity and amazing stargazing accompanied by the lodge’s in-house professional astronomer.
