Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

In a town over-run with quaint and charming guesthouses in quiet suburbs, the Zum Kaiser Hotel (formerly the Swakopmund Boutique Hotel) stands out for its modern style, sophisticated service and central location.

The seafront is a minute's walk from the hotel and the centre of Swakopmund town is a minute's walk in the other direction. You are close to restaurants, shops, activity centres and of course, miles and miles of Skeleton Coast shoreline.

With just 21 rooms and operating as a fully fledged hotel complete with room service, concierge and its own restaurant, the Zum Kaiser Hotel certainly earns its boutique hotel status.

The decor is an urban blend of boardroom neutrals in marble, brushed style and off-white finishes; mahogany highlights lift the interior from drab to elegant.  The rooms too have plenty of boutique-hotel attention with original paintings, a notable absence of anything built-in or built for convenience and luxurious bathrooms.

The restaurant - open to the public for an atmosphere boost - features dozens of paintings by local artists and the kitchen produces quality dishes using carefully sourced local ingredients for daily specials. The rooftop garden offers a view of the Atlantic Ocean, the sunset over said ocean, downtown Swakopmund and the desert dunes in the distance.
