The Olive Exclusive is an exquisite boutique hotel that offers guests a chic and luxurious stay just five minutes out of Windhoek’s city centre.
Beautifully considered, Olive Exclusive is decorated with real style. Cool, contemporary lines contrast with traditional African fabrics and textures to striking effect. Huge photographic murals throughout the hotel celebrate Namibia’s natural splendour, wildlife and rich culture. Outside, cobbled walkways wind through the gardens and there is a pool with stylish sun loungers as well as an outdoors dining area. A small gift shop sells African crafts. With modern furnishings contrasting with traditional materials and natural imagery, everything about Olive Exclusive is stunningly envisioned. It’s a look worth of an interiors magazine. Contemporary, classy and smoothly run by warm and friendly staff, it’s a sumptuous overnight oasis.
