The Burning Shore Hotel


The choice of celebrities

The Burning Shore Hotel is the Swakopmund hotel that shot to fame when the Jolie-Pitt phenomenon chose it for their three-month pre-natal escape to Namibia. And what a choice for escape. Set halfway between the towns of Swakopmund and Walvis Bay – themselves fairly remote – the Burning Shore is backed by a gazillion tonnes of sand, in the form of some picturesque dunes, and fronted by a gazillion litres of Atlantic Ocean, which in turn forms a rather picturesque sunset.

The hotel has seven rooms and five suites; all face the sea and have luxurious bathrooms and comfortable furnishings. The main living area has an ornate cocktail bar; a lounge with a fireplace and a lavish dining room. Like the rooms, the sea and that burning sunset is a central feature of the view. You have direct access to a private beach and a private Jacuzzi if you fear the effects of a dip in the icy Atlantic Ocean.

The Burning Shore: The choice of celebs

Within minutes of leaving the busy little town of Swakopmund you can be on your private balcony, overlooking your private beach towards your private sunset. The Burning Shore Hotel is on an isolated stretch of beach and your privacy and seclusion are guaranteed. And if you feel like a bit of company or activity, a short drive north or south will take you to Swakopmund or Walvis Bay, which offer plenty of both. It will come as no surprise that this was the location chosen by Brad Pitt and Angeline Jolie to escape to when they visited Namibia.
