Amenities and facilities

Ocean Vagabond is a conglomeration of 20 bungalows, a restaurant and bar (serving alcohol) as well as our ION CLUB Windsurfing & Kitesurfing Center right on the water’s edge (at high tide). There is also a shop and a cozy chill-out corner, restaurant with bar and beach bar. Even in this remote, desert environment you don’t have to survive without internet. Valuables can be stored at the hotel safe. A laundry service is available at an extra charge. 

Room Types

Pacha Lodge Superior: The wooden bungalows are about 25m² in size and rather spacious. They are bright and functionally furnished with three beds, closet and bathroom with shower/WC. Thanks to the double walls the bungalows stay warm even in the winter. Equipped with massive wood furniture the rooms provide a rather spartan, yet modern atmosphere and small accessories are set with great attention to detail. Each bungalow has a private terrace with large wooden chairs. The wind always comes from the back so the terrace is wind proofed and you can always relax in the wind shadow.
Please don't take your bath towel to the beach. You can purchase a beach towel at the boutique or simply bring your own towel.

Youngblood Bungalow: There are also eight Youngblood Bungalows, which are smaller with space for 2 people only. They have now also integrated bathroom and toilette like the standard ones.

Ecological note

The Ocean Vagabond takes a leading role in terms of ecological compatibility and adapts perfectly the surrounding nature. The bungalows have been built with recycled wood from an old stable. Each bungalow has a solar panel on the roof as well as a warm water tank. Fresh water comes from a deep well, located 5 km away. 
The complex has its own waste water facility, and the processed water will be used on the premise for irrigation. Furthermore, LED lights help to reduce energy. Due to the water shortage in this remote destination and in consideration of the local people we ask all our guests to limit the use fresh water and energy.

Max. occupancy: 3 people

Meal Plan

Recommendations

Avoid eating in the rooms or you might end up sharing with some little jerboas (which hop about all night long!). Water for washing comes from sulphurous, naturally warm springs (good for your skin but not fit for drinking!).
Electricity (220 V) is supplied by an electric generator unit in operation from 5 am to 3 pm and 5 pm to 3 am. In order to help protect the environment, we have concentrated on saving energy, so appliances with heating elements will not work here (hair dryers, irons etc.) 

Excursions

Excursions to the wave spot, down winder with boat shuttle, City tour Dakhla etc. are available on the spot.

Internet

WiFi is available for free.

Our opinion

A unique accommodation in a fantastic setting at the lagoon in the desert nature. Far away from civilization you will enjoy the tranquillity, the spot and the sport with like-minded Surfers.
