The Olive Exclusive
The Olive Exclusive is an all-suite luxury boutique hotel in Windhoek. Beautifully crafted and expertly run, this is a hotel the whole of Namibia can be proud of.
The Olive Exclusive sets high expectations and then goes out of its way to exceed them. Each suite, named after an area in Namibia, is decorated in its own style, complete with furniture and artwork which are attractions in their own right. Solid granite coffee tables, rough-hewn timber and views in just the right places all come together in this luxuriously decadent oasis.
Each spacious suite has a small kitchenette with a coffee machine and tea making facilities along with a well-stocked mini bar and an inclusive wine selection. The suites also have their own lounge areas for private dining if you'd prefer the intimacy of dining alone and for cold winter nights, a fireplace to keep the rooms warm.
The main building has a deck which overlooks the olive grove which gave this luxury boutique hotel its name, dinner under the stars is a wonderful experience, not just because of the setting but also because the food is perfectly prepared and served by friendly, well-trained staff. Breakfasts are a treat with a first course served on a stand towering with fresh fruit, pastries, yoghurt and bread just out of the oven, followed by a cooked breakfast made to order.
Managers' Carol and Mike have an eye for detail and exceptional service which has carried through to the staff, making your stay at the Olive Exclusive first class without being pretentious and visually stimulating – something rare and difficult to achieve in a man-made environment.
The Olive Exclusive has seven suites - each of which have free wireless internet connectivity, satellite TV, mini-bar, iPod docking stations, hairdryer, telephone, air-conditioning as well as fireplaces for cooler winter evenings, a private lounge and dining area and a spacious deck making relaxation blissfully simple. If you stay in any of the 4 Premier Suites, you even have the luxury of your own private plunge pool. All suites offer spectacular views over Eros Mountains.
The in-house restaurant offers a hearty cold and hot buffet-style breakfast daily. Lunch is also served there from the a la carte menu. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks at the sleek, ultra chic bar with a fine selection of whiskies, cognacs and liqueurs. And finally, round off your evening with a culinary experience paired with finest wines from the a la carte menu. If you are in the mood of a more intimate setting, you can request to have dinner in the privacy of your own dining room area in your suite.
Relax by the communal swimming pool take in the African sun on your own private deck. Outside of the hotel, you may explore the town of Windhoek or head off to the nearest Game Reserve for a safari, game walk or even wildlife sanctuary.
