Strand Hotel Swakopmund
The Strand Hotel Swakopmund is a social hub for visitors and residents of Swakopmund. The hotel has creatively entertaining restaurants, bars, deli, lounge, sea-facing terraces, beach kiosk and state of the art conference & banqueting centre, all set on the Mole, a historic site surrounded by ocean on three sides.
The Strand’s architectural inspiration has roots 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 itself. The result is simply warm and comfortable and, as they say in German, gemütlich, providing a genuine sense of place and adding to any Namibian visit.
Arriving at the Strand is a dramatic experience as one passes through its 13m high and 9m wide Ocean View Atrium which travels right through the hotel offering sea views at either end. Off the Atrium Lobby is Reception, consisting of three individual desks and an inviting open fireplace which rounds off the residential feel and warm welcome.
There are various room levels with the Standard Rooms having panoramic sliding doors with garden views, en-suite bathroom, writing desk and armchair. Enabled Rooms have in addition a second bathroom for disabled use and full wheelchair access. Luxury Rooms have balconies offering sea views and large beds, dining tables, couch and two armchairs. There are also Junior and Luxury Suites sleeping four and one Presidential Suite.
Although the hotel has no swimming pool, the Atlantic Ocean provides opportunities for a refreshing dip, especially in the warmth of mid-day.

Beautiful country with a wide range of opportunities on offer – wildlife viewing, varied scenery, culture and memorable sunsets. The colours, shapes and shadows of Deadvlei at dawn will stay with me forever. Very helpful and informative discussions with Alan Godwin before booking. Everyone in country did their bit at the right time in the right place. I felt very well looked after. The care and attention to detail was outstanding and this helped me to relax and enjoy the experience and enabled me to begin to make new but different memories.
