Situated in the peaceful solitude of an idyllic valley, in the heart of the desert, Barkhan Dune Retreat is the ideal place for travelers who seek tranquility and intimacy. Nestled in a Barkhan dune, the Retreat makes it possible for its occupants to live in harmony with nature, at the same time offering them comfort, luxury, adventure and relaxation.

We offer a variety of accommodation, including 10 rooms, of which 7 Dune Chalets are located about 20–50 meters from the main building. Our self-catering options include a two-bedroom house (Okanti) sleeping 5, situated 800 meters to the north of the main building, and a secluded self-catering unit (KuanguKuangu) sleeping 2, ideal for honeymooners, located 1 kilometre to the northwest. Additionally, nestled around a large boulder, our Rustic Cabin, sleeping 2, provides a serene and intimate self-catering experience in the heart of the desert.

Here is a list of the activities we offer, in and around Barkhan Dunes Resort.
