The Olive Exclusive Boutique Hotel is an intimate boutique hotel in a tranquil corner of Windhoek that embodies the very essence of chic comfort. This is our favourite place to stay if you are looking for five star luxury.
The Olive Exclusive is the first ultra-luxurious sanctuary in the Namibian capital: cool, contemporary and stylish but with a warm heart and authentic African soul. Its sleek, modern lines are complemented by organic textures, natural furnishings, an eco-friendly approach and friendly personal service. Simple elegance is key, from the organic rough-hewn wooden benches and side tables, through to the sculpted chunk of granite that serves as a coffee table in the lounge, to walls clad in abstract Namibian landscapes by well-known South African designer and photographer Micky Hoyle.
Accommodation at the Olive Exclusive Boutique Hotel
The seven suites are individually decorated to reflect a different region in Namibia, and each has its own lounge area with fireplace and dining room, for private dining. There’s a choice of three junior suites which share a swimming pool, or four premier suites which have a front-row position overlooking the olive grove and valley beyond with your own private plunge pool on the deck. Wide glass doors open onto spacious decks where you can relax on a shady daybed, enjoy al fresco lunches or take a dip in the pool. Air-conditioning, high definition satellite TV and iPod docking stations are standard, as is a computer with WiFi access. Then there’s a fully stocked mini bar so you can toast the setting sun in fine style.
The Olive Exclusive Boutique Hotel has an in-house restaurant featuring a seasonal menu, with inventive signature dishes. The fully stocked bar also features a classic selection of fine whisky. The Olive Exclusive is the perfect luxurious base from which to explore Windhoek and its surrounds before heading off on a Namibian safari.
Junior SuiteThe three Junior Suites are set within their own private courtyards with outdoor seating. Large glass windows and cool screeded floors complement the light and spacious interiors. Well placed and easily adjustable lighting adds to the relaxing ambience.
Premier SuiteThe Olive Exclusive's four Premier Suites have front-row position overlooking the olive grove and valley beyond, and tall glass windows make the most of the views. Doors lead to a large deck with a plunge pool, sunloungers and additional seating.
