Olive Grove is a cool and sophisticated boutique guest house situated in a peaceful suburb, close to the centre of Namibia’s laid-back capital city, Windhoek

The accommodation oozes minimalist chic; softened by warm lighting and an intimate and homely atmosphere, this is further complemented by fantastic hosts and little touches such as the open-plan kitchen and cosy sitting room. Superb alfresco dining, and plenty of spaces to relax – including the Wellness Room offering calming treatments, plunge pool and tranquil garden – make this the perfect stop over, whether it’s at the beginning or the end of your Namibian adventure; a truly serene oasis in this fascinating and unique city.

Facilities & Activities

Olive Grove caters for every need of the discerning traveller, but the emphasis here is definitely on rest and relaxation.  The cosy sitting room is a great spot to enjoy a drink from the bar, with its chunky sofas and inviting fireplace, or there is a beautiful and tranquil garden with a small swimming pool and terrace where you can recline on one of the many loungers.  Complementing the soothing atmosphere of the guest house is a Wellness Room offering a range of treatments including hot stone massages and reflexology that will help you unwind after a long flight or perhaps provide the perfect end to an action-packed holiday.

The city centre is just a 10-minute stroll away, where you will find great attractions like the Lutheran Christus Kirche, National Art Gallery, and the National Botanical Gardens.  Windhoek is an eclectic and fascinating city with its colourful German heritage and rich cultural mix.  If you’re looking for ethnic presents, there are great crafts and curios from stalls lining Post Street Mall and at the Namibian Craft Centre.

Should you need to catch up on emails, there is a laptop available for guests to use and WIFI is available in most parts of the guest house
