During July the construction of the long awaited new Strand Hotel Swakopmund will begin.
It is located in the heart of Swakopmund’s Historical Centre on a pier known as the ‘Mole’ and surrounded on three sides by the Atlantic Ocean with spectacular beach and sea views and direct access to the main beach in town.
The building should take about 18 to 20 months and will create some 1 500 employment opportunities during construction and some 250 permanent jobs once opened.
The design of the Hotel offers a genuine “sense-of-place” experience, and is a contemporary interpretation of the old German Architecture this Beach Town is so famous for. It is being completed to meet international 4 star standards.
Strand Hotel Swakopmund will feature 129 Rooms and Suites along with three Restaurants, three Bars, a Beach Kiosk, a Lobby lounge, a Gym and Spa. It will also have meeting rooms and a Banquetting Hall for up to 230 people.
The Strand Hotel Swakopmund is owned by O&L Leisure (PTY) LTD, a subsidiary of the O&L Group of Companies in Namibia. O&L is the largest and 100% Namibian private sector group of companies in Namibia with some 5 000 employees. O&L Leisure invests some N$ 350 million, one of the biggest investments into the Namibia Tourism Industry in history to build the Strand Hotel Swakopmund.
Our goal is to open the Strand Hotel Swakopmund early 2015.
When Strand Hotel Swakopmund opens, with its extensive, unique and creatively entertaining facilities set on this historic and iconic site, it’s destined to become a destination in itself for all visitors to and residents of Swakopmund.
