THE OLIVE EXCLUSIVE: AN INSPIRING BOUTIQUE HOTEL IN NAMIBIA

The Olive Exclusive is a small boutique hotel located in Windhoek, Namibia, which boasts an exemplary interior, rich and brimming with earthy elements evident in the generous use of wood and stone both in refined and more traditional fashions.

Here’s an apt description as seen on the hotel website,

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 . 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 designer and 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 free standing tub with sweeping mountain views.
