The Sea-View Hotel Zum Sperrgebiet would be less than noteworthy if it weren't for the splendid double-volume atrium that shelters the heated pool from the crispy Atlantic wind that whistles through the town of Lüderitz on most days. That and the friendly service, excellent seafood restaurant, and its prime location overlooking the bay.
The 22 en suite rooms are comfortable, functional, and have views over the town, harbour, and Lüderitz Bay. The restaurant – featuring fresh seafood and red meat Namibian-style – has that same view as do the lounge and the sundowner cocktail bar. The Sea-View Zum Sperrgebiet Hotel is on the edge of town, making it a convenient base from which to explore the intricacies, contrasts, and oddities that make Lüderitz such an alluring destination for Namibia travel.
The well-preserved neo-Gothic buildings lend themselves to the timeless charm of this incongruous town and the Zum Sperrgebiet is a convenient place to go exploring. Visit Diaz Cross, Bogenfels rock arch, the coastline, Kolmanskop Ghost Town, and go on ocean cruises, birding tours, and fishing trips.And back at the ranch, the heated pool, sauna, and fabulous sunset provide plenty of time to relax, recover, and reflect on the day's activities.
