Skeleton Coast Shipwreck Lodge
Namibia's Skeleton Coast's name comes from the dozens of shipwrecks and bones that litter its shores, the results of seal hunts and whaling operations. The Shipwreck Lodge is inspired by these ships and a destination spot for adventuring travelers looking for one of the most unique places to stay on Earth. There are 10 ensuite shipwreck rooms that feature wood burning stoves, solar-powered electronics, an impressive lounge and restaurant with a large wraparound deck offering breathtaking views of the stretches of sand and Atlantic Ocean. An architectural team led by Nina Maritz has made the lodgings as environmentally friendly as possible going to such extreme lengths as using only wooden nails to build each cabin. Bookings for this once in a lifetime experience are open now with rates starting at $750, all-inclusive.
