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

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

You even have your own little outdoor pool. Dinner and breakfast (you have your own little breakfast buffet at your table) the next day - Simply amazing! Thoroughly and highly... More

We spent our first night here on arriving in Namibia and it was an excellent start to this part of our trip. The boutique hotel is beautifully designed and furnished - our 'junior suite' was spacious with a stylish bathroom, including a separate toilet (always a bonus as far as we are concerned). There was a small, attractive terrace outside... More

We stayed at the beginning and at the end of our holiday in Namibia at olive exclusive, both times at the Etosha suite (room nr.1). We loved the room, it was private, huge with a beautiful design, so also was the hotel and the grounds. The view from the room was not very spectacular though. The hotel feels more like... More
