Shipwreck Lodge

Discover Shipwreck Lodge

Shipwreck Lodge is located in the Skeleton Coast concession between the Hoarusib and Hoanib rivers in the Skeleton Coast National Park. The 8 double and 2 family cabins are shipwreck-shaped and nestled between the dunes with a view of the Atlantic Ocean. The lodge's design is inspired by the many ships that have been wrecked on the Skeleton Coast.

There are only 8 rooms. 5 luxury rooms have mountain views and the 3 luxury terrace rooms look out over the city and the Atlantic Ocean. These 3 rooms offer a large balcony perched above the pool, providing a haven for relaxation. The rooms are all air-conditioned with a flat-screen TV, Bluetooth speaker, hairdryers and flat irons and heated flooring and rails. During your stay you can enjoy the rooftop bar and entertainment area, an infinity pool with views of the city and harbor, an atrium with a glass ceiling and views of Table Mountain and in-room media entertainment.
