The designers of Olive Grove Guesthouse went to town. Not the centre of town, which is just minutes away, but Stone Town. Take a look on our Windhoek Map to orientate yourself. Austere in its minimalist chic, the guesthouse is a modern taken on Roman times. With concrete baths, screed floors, granite tiles, ornate iron furniture, and flashes of cotton-white, the atmosphere is so calm it verges on sombre. The bold, bare-faced style that meets you upon arrival continues into the 11 rooms, the monochromatic austerity of which draw your attention to the softly beckoning white cotton of the beds; the open-plan basins and bath shower are an intimate touch while the air conditioning, tea and coffee, mini bar, and snack platter up the comfort ante. Breakfast is on the patio by the pool, which leads into a cosy lounge and dining room. Removing itself from the guesthouse category an à la carte menu is served throughout the day from the large open-plan kitchen and dinners are available on request.

The tranquil garden would unwind a Rolex: a small plunge pool and granite-tiled pool deck have comfortable loungers and plenty of sun and shade; the open-air spa peeks out over the city and has a private sitting area.
