Set in the timeless town of Lüderitz, visiting the Alte Villa Gästehaus is a trip into Namibia’s past. This old colonial building was built during the time of German Kaiser Friedrich III, but now has a few modern touches that make it the perfect place to stay.
Its bold bright yellow colour makes it easily recognisable, and speaks to the distinctive character of both this historic building, and Lüderitz itself.
Each room in the Alte Villa Gästehaus is decorated individually to give it character, and give you a unique experience. All the rooms have sea or garden views, a desk, and a private bathroom. You also get to decide if you opt for one with a bathtub or a shower.
During your trip you can enjoy a drink in the bar and take in the amazing views from the terrace. Come here at sunset for the best experience; there’s nothing like sipping on a cocktail as the sun goes down over the horizon!
Make sure you explore the gardens, too – they’re incredibly beautiful and have a lovely aroma that will linger with you long after you leave Lüderitz.
Breakfast is included in your stay, and there’s a restaurant where you can eat in the evenings. This region is renowned for its delicious seafood, so make sure you try the lobster and oysters during your stay.
There are plenty of activities for you to try in Lüderitz; ask the hotel staff what to try first. We’d suggest fishing, hiking and windsurfing, but some old-fashioned sightseeing wouldn’t go amiss either.
