Pelican Point Lodge is one of those hotels that isn’t just accommodation, but a destination in itself.
The lodge took its name from the Pelican Point, where it’s situated. It’s a remote peninsula off the coast of Namibia with the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Walvis Bay on the other. Being the only inhabited building on the peninsula, Pelican Point Lodge might seem to be a secluded spot. It does, however, enjoy frequent visits from seals, flamingos, seagulls and even curious jackals so you won’t be lacking company.
Housed in a renovated Harbor Control building at the foot of a magnificent (and still working!) lighthouse, the lodge offers only 10 suites making it even more special. With names inspired by the surrounding nature (The Lagoon Suite, The Pelican Suite etc.), each and every room is unique. The décor draws on the colours and materials of the peninsula: sandy beiges and warm wood are the dominant elements of these cosy interiors.
The most exquisite of all is certainly the Captain’s Cove Suite located in the old control tower. Thanks to its previous lookout role, it boasts a 360 degree panoramic view and is bathed in light all day long. Luckily, your complimentary breakfast can be ordered to bed so you can enjoy the most scenic lie-in of your life for longer.
Although lazing around and going on long walks are truly epic at the Pelican Point Lodge, the hotel will also organise for you kayaking with seals, dolphin cruises, dune boarding and much more.
