We stayed in room 4- an enormous suite delightfully decorated in an eclectic mix of driftwood, modern glass, steel, solid marble... The decor almost defies description but the result is wonderful. The bathroom is huge and delightful while the bed is almost as big and absolutely sumptuous! This is 5 star unique African city comfort and style at its peak.... More

We spent a night here on our way into Namibia and then again on the way out. It was a fabulous experience, great hotel staff, amazing room. One of the nicest hotels to stay. The service was excellent and the food in restaurant was really good and better than trying to find somewhere to eat in Windhoek. We should have... More

The rooms detail and decor blew me away. Friendly and helpful staff and with an amazing restaurant and stunning evening view of Windhoek City Lights. Even the Breakfast & Coffee was memorable. Over all, I can't wait for my next visit.

Windhoek is a bit small for a capital city to speak of its suburbs, but this excellent boutique hotel has a very relaxed, leafy and classy suburban feel to it, located in the rolling hills of Eros neighbourhood (still within walking distance of the city center). It's very well designed and kept, with much eye for detail. The suites are... More

Having flown for two nights from Canada - I had no expectations of this hotel. But once it's comforts, style and quality were revealed - I knew I was in the right place. The rooms - or suites - are each uniquely and tastefully designed. The view from the restaurant could either be Umbria or Namibia. The food was lovely;... More

We stayed at the hotel before and after a seven-day safari in Namibia. The rooms are wonderful, the staff warm and welcoming, and the restaurant top-notch. The hotel is clearly five-star anywhere it would be located; for Namibia it is well beyond 5-star. Can't express enough how perfect the product is. The rooms are very nicely appointed, with African overtones... More

We stayed here at the start and at the end of our trip around Namibia and we were very happy on both occasions. The rooms are very spacious, the beds comfortable and there are lots of special little touches in the rooms that made our times here special. The bathrooms had everything that you could need. Each room has an... More

We started our travels in Namibia with three nights at Olive Exclusive. It is expensive. However we were more than satisfied with our room, the restaurant and the excellent service of the staff. What a great start to our special trip in Namibia. This is a hands-on hotel at which everyone, including the manager, is ready to help the traveler... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with friends - there are two hotels next to each other, the Exclusive has the wonderful rooms - individual huts overlooking the view. Decor in these suites is fabulous, with wonderful furniture and beautiful accessories - loved being here. Go for the breakfast to share which comes on a 3 tier stand bursting with amazing... More
