Zannier Hotels Sonop

The desert is calling, and the new "Dune" film makes us want to go on a journey. Nestled at the Southern extremity of the Namib desert, this spectacular hotel was designed as a refined British colonial experience from the 1920s styled safari camp, reminiscent of an old-world safari. The Zannier Hotels Sonop offers a perfect expedition-style retreat in a stunning panoramic desert landscape. The luxurious tented camp features 10 spacious tents that are constructed on top of boulders, and capture the look and feel of a bygone era. At the hotel you can enjoy the beautiful pool, the gym, a separate cocktail and cigar lounge, open-air cinema, or the gastronomic restaurant. Outside of the hotel, you can explore from the comfort of a game vehicle, horseback or on foot, or go on a hot air balloon excursion, a mountain bike ride and dine in the wild.
