A wonderful small hotel, in a quiet location. The service I received was excellent. Breakfast was really good. I only stayed one night on my arrival in Namibia before embarking on a tour of this beautiful country.

We only spent one night here on our last night in Namibia. Our dusty, muddy 4x4 looked very out of place! Everything from check-in to check-out was handled smoothly and with a personal touch. The room (Namib Suite) was stunning - Nespresso maker, candlesticks around the bath, TV on a swivel, huge comfortable bed. The food was equally good, with... More

Okay, the pool could be a bit bigger but the rooms, service, excellent food, wine and gorgeous views make up for it. It's in a great and quiet location. I spent a total of three nights here on my way in and out of the country. Wish it could be longer. Would like to come back for vacation. Would be... More

Our time at The Olive Exclusive was absolute perfection. All I can say is, if you are considering staying, just book it in! You will be so happy that you did. We stayed in Suite 1 - and I'm struggling to find words to express just how beautiful it was - from the furnishings to all the little touches around... More

We arrived here after a 6 hour dusty drive from the desert in our 4x4 pickup - couple, 2 kids and grandma. What an oasis of 5 star indulgence! It was the perfect place to stay for our last night in Namibia, I just wish we could have stayed longer. Kenneth & his team provided everything we needed. I just... More

Windhoek looks to be a pretty scrappy town, albeit with one glassy Hilton at its center, so to come upon this exquisitely tasteful and quiet hotel in the suburbs not far away was a near-miracle. The place, opened only in 2011, is exceptionally elegant, full of lovely flourishes--from the lighting in the bathroom to the laptop in every room to... More

We recently spent 2 nights at The Olive Exclusive in Windhoek. It was SUCH a nice experience. The rooms are spotlessly clean, stylish and luxurious. The restaurant was outstanding with an extensive wine list. Breakfasts were so yummy and beyond plentiful. They come with a tower of food (scones, salmon, cheeses, meats, bread, jam, etc.) and that's BEFORE you get... More

We stayed in the Benguela suite. The suite is luxuriously and stylish furnished with amazing print art work, a free standing bath and subtle lighting making our one night stay relaxing. The room was quiet and we were undisturbed by anything or anyone during our stay so we totally relaxed on our last night in Namibia before catching the plane... More

Many thanks for taking the time to review The Olive Exclusive. Your wonderful comments about the food in particular are very motivational, and have been passed on to the kitchen team. Also, that you highlighted shortcomings in our housekeeping is very helpful to us. We can offer no excuse for why we let our own extremely high standards slip on... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
This intimate boutique hotel in a tranquil corner of Windhoek embodies the very essence of chic comfort.The Olive Exclusive – the first ultra-luxurious sanctuary of its kind in the Namibian capital – is 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 dedicated personal service.Simple elegance is key, from the organic rough-hewn wooden benches and side tables, through the sculpted chunk of granite that serves as a coffee table in the guest lounge, to walls clad in abstract Namibian landscapes by well-known South African photographer Micky Hoyle.The seven suites are individually decorated so each reflects a different region in Namibia, and each has its own lounge area with fireplace and dining room, for private dining. Wide glass doors open onto spacious decks where you can relax on a shady daybed, enjoy al fresco lunches or, if yours is a premium suite, take a dip in your own private plunge pool.Such are the creature comforts that you may find it hard to leave: sink into an extra-length bed dressed in crisp, pure-cotton linen, or indulge in a bubble bath in a freestanding tub with sweeping mountain views. Air-conditioning, satellite TV and iPod docking stations are standard, as is a computer with WiFi access. Then there's a fully stocked mini bar, complete with a premium wine selection, so you can toast the setting sun in fine style.The Olive Exclusive boasts a quality restaurant featuring a seasonal menu, with inventive signature dishes. The fully stocked bar also features a classic selection of fine whisky. ... more   less
