This is a lovely hotel, we received a very warm welcome. Rooms are very nicely decorated and very comfortable. The views of the sea are fantastic. The food served at the restaurants is delicious. We went to the spa and it was one of the best massages I have ever had.

Room tip: Ask for a room facing the sea.

... well. If you are planning a stay close to the ocean during your stay in Namibia we can only recommned the hotel Strand in Swakopmund. This year (2018) they’re having their 3rd anniversary, and the hotel amenities and furniture do have a very high standard. We were accomodated in a junior suire, with 2 balconies overlooking the sea. Really nice. The rooms are quite and the bed is super comfortable. The bathroom is very big and very nice, with a separate walk-in shower as well as toilet, and 2 separate sinks as weel as a bathtub.

You can either eat in the brewery (with own beer and meat specialities), the Garden Restaurant (with excellent cakes in the afternoon or as dessert, and Italian cuisine), or at the Ocean Breeze fish Restaurant. The setting is very nice and held in a blue and white marine style, the staff is again super friendly and the food is just outstanding. You can choose a a big variaty of fish dishes and also freshly prepared sushi. Each of the restaurants has also a terrace overlooking the ocean, and therefore outside sitting possibilities.

This hotel has somehow a very European touch, although is is located in Namibia.

*** ENJOY !!! ***

The location of this hotel on the ocean front with roaring waves nearly entering your room is only one of the attractions. The rooms are absolutely beautiful and the reception area with its walk through to the ocean front is memorable.
Staff very friendly and competent.
We had dinner in the Brewhouse restaurant and believe it was probably the best dinner we had in Namibia. We had gotten tired of having to pay 330 Namibian dollars a person for a soso buffet in the lodges of the Gondwana collection. In the brewhouse we had an excellent meal, served by professional waiters for the price of 200 Namibian dollars each !

Very personal service for tourists from a seemingly formal business hotel. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Maria on reception went above and beyond expected service to help us with a rental car problem. Fantastic breakfast choice and excellent quality. Three restaurants and we ate in the Brewer and Butcher every evening of our stay. Great menu choice. Staff welcoming and accommodating. Great location on sea front and only 5 min walk to town. Highly recommended.
