With the best seat in the house, Lüderitz Nest is the town's best hotel to boot. It sits on a peninsula that juts into the bay and every room has a spectacular sea view.
The rooms are comfortable and modern with custom-made fittings, en suite bathrooms, air conditioning, heated towel rails, satellite TV and the usual hotel extras like tea and coffee, direct dial telephones.
The restaurant, quite rightly, places an emphasis on fresh seafood, plucked from the shores beneath your very room. The terrace outside has an oyster bar beside a large pool and lush garden - all facing the sea of course. A sauna - with sea view - provides complete respite from the chilled wind that blows in from the Antarctic.
In front of the hotel is a private beach that is safe for swimming, if you don't mind the cold and the town and surrounds of Lüderitz provide plenty of daytime interest. And a pleasant diversion while you work up an appetite for your next dinner.

Where the desert meets the vistas of the Aus Mountains, seven self-contained chalets of Eagle's Nest are sculpted into the boulders. What you see is what you get and what you get is a spectacular view.
Out of the Wild West and straight into Aus, the Desert Horse Inn is an excellent stopover option between Fish River Canyon and Sossusvlei.
I cannot say enough about this great company and Ashlee herself... best honeymoon we could have wished for!
