With its extensive, unique and creatively entertaining Restaurants, Bars, Deli, Lobby-Lounge, Sea-Facing Terraces, Beach Kiosk and state-of-the-art Conference & Banqueting Centre, all set on the Mole, a historic and iconic site surrounded by Ocean on three sides, the Strand Hotel Swakopmund is the social epicentre and a destination in itself for all visitors to and residents of Swakopmund.
Its architectural inspiration finds its roots deep in Namibian-German history and reflects this in a tasteful contemporary manner. The interiors are residential in nature, and the brief to all designers involved was to create a non-hotel, hotel – one as charming and welcoming as the town it is located in. Simply very warm and comfortable, and as they say in German: “gemütlich” providing a genuine “sense-of-place” atmosphere adding to any Namibian visit.
Arriving at the Strand is a dramatic experience as one passes through its 13 metre high and 9 metre wide Ocean View Atrium, which travels right through the Hotel offering sea views at either end. Leading from this Atrium Lobby is the Reception, consisting of three individual desks and an inviting open fireplace which rounds off the residential feel and warm welcome.
Set on a coastal location, surrounded by ocean on 3 sides.
Only 2 km away from the excitement of the city centre and easy access to must-see city attractions.
Access to a private beach.
This is a large property and might not be ideal for those looking for a boutique lodge experience.
Set along Namibia’s spectacularly scenic coast, the seaside town of Swakopmund is known for its wide-open avenues, colonial architecture, and its surrounding otherworldly desert terrain. Founded in 1892 as the main harbour for German South West Africa, Swakopmund is often described as being more German than Germany. Now a seaside resort town, Swakopmund is the capital of the Skeleton Coast tourism area and has plenty to keep visitors happy. The quirky mix of German and Namibian influences, adventure options, laid-back atmosphere and cool sea breeze make it a very popular Namibian destination. Visitors can look forward to a number of exciting activities including quad biking, horse riding, paragliding, fishing, sightseeing and fascinating desert tours.
Just south of Swakopmund lies Walvis Bay (which means whale bay) a thriving town and Namibia’s principal harbour. It is one of the country’s most popular tourist centres and known for its natural lagoon, striking orange sand dunes and wealth of outdoor activities, including fishing, bird-watching, sailing, sandboarding, swimming, surfing and golf. Located just outside town is Dune 7, one of the largest sand dunes in the world, offering fantastic views from the crest for those with the energy to climb it. Visitors can look forward to a number of activities including visiting the expansive green and pink salt pans dotted with flocks of flamingoes, and jumping on a boat trip to view seals colonies, dolphins and friendly pelicans, while enjoying champagne and oysters.
