The Swakopmund Hotel provides comfortable accommodation in charming Swakopmund.
The four star Swakopmund Hotel is one of the popular seaside resort town’s historic landmarks. Swakopmund’s old station building, erected in 1902, today forms part of the hotel’s public areas, maintaining an authentic old-world colonial charm. The additional buildings were constructed to complement the historical architecture of the station, dressing their exteriors in the same cream and moss green tones while fitting interiors with classic furnishings.
The hotel offers 90 en suite guest rooms - 88 standard and two presidential suites. The rooms are enriched with tasteful decor well-paired with the hotel’s regal atmosphere, and include modern amenities such as complimentary wireless internet access, satellite television and 24-hour room service.
Towering palm trees shade the grounds and paint an oasis-like picture, particularly those scattered around the swimming pool. Lounging poolside is indeed popular amongst guests, as Swakopmund’s position on the edge of the desert ensures consistently high daytime temperatures. Dining at the Swakopmund Hotel is an altogether nostalgic experience, as the Victorian-style Platform One restaurant emulates a bygone era.
The hotel boasts a wide range of activities both on- and off-site. Guests may try their luck at the Mermaid Casino or disappear to one of the hotel’s two movie theaters for cinematic entertainment. For the more adventurous at heart, camel rides, desert tours, quad biking, dune boarding, dolphin cruises and even tandem skydiving can all be arranged at the hotel.
