We wound our way through the streets of Windhoek navigating using our GPS until we found our Hotel in central Windhoek. The hotel is right in the middle of the suburbs of Windhoek perched on the side of a steep hill. The hotel offers seven different suites to choose from with the premier suites having the own plunge pool situated in the middle of the verandah that spans the length of each room. The suites are large and roomy and consist of a double volume. The décor is very modern and tastefully done with an Afro Namibian twist.
The décor uses a theme of an organic rough-hewn feel in terms of the various pieces of furniture used. The walls feature pictures of abstract Namibian landscapes by well-known South African designer and photographer Micky Hoyle.
The seven suites are individually decorated each reflecting a different region in Namibia, and each has its own lounge area with fireplace and dining room, for private dining should you wish . Each suite has an extra-length bed dressed in crisp, pure-cotton linen.
The bathrooms are generous and offer a free standing tub with sweeping views. Rooms are air-conditioned, however, on both the first and last night our aircon battled with the warm dry temperatures experienced from the Namibian climate.
Each Suite comes with a high definition satellite TV, iPod docking station and computer with Wi-Fi access. There is also a fully stocked mini bar with wine.
The breakfasts are included in the rate which can be enjoyed either inside the restaurant or on the large external patio. Dinner and lunches are available ale carte offering a different selection of foods depending upon the season.
The staffs were friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.
