Strand Hotel Swakopmund
Strand Hotel Swakopmund sits directly on the mole (promenade), surrounded on three sides by the Atlantic Ocean. From this hotel, it’s a short 5-minute walk to the historic centre of Swakopmund with its charming German Victorian-era architecture, shops, restaurants and bars.
This is a larger hotel with 125 rooms, of which 90% have sea views while the rest look onto the gardens or park. For guaranteed sea views pick a Luxury Room, each with sliding doors opening onto “step-out” Romeo & Juliet balcony. And for couples with kids, the hotel has a number of inter-leading family rooms.
With its restaurants, bars and sea-facing terraces, Strand Hotel is the social epicentre of Swakopmund for both visitors and locals alike. The Brewer & Butcher specialises in Namibian, German and other meat dishes, washed down with the hotel’s own craft beer brewed on site. There’s also a Farmhouse Deli; seafood restaurants, oyster and wine bar and pavilion directly on the beach.
