SWAKOPMUND HOTEL & ENTERTAINMENT CENTRE - SWAKOPMUND, NAMIBIA
The Swakopmund Hotel & Entertainment Centre is located in Namibia's premier coastal resort townProbably the most unique feature about Namibia is its space. Incessant deserts stretch for miles to meet the most dramatic sunsets you can imagine. This country, with its strong German influence, has a magnificent coastline speckled with charming little towns rich in history.

One such town is Swakopmund, Namibia's premier coastal resort. Built in and around its beautifully restored Old Station Building, dating back to 1901, is the Swakopmund Hotel and Entertainment Centre. The hotel combines renowned Namibian hospitality with impeccable service and stylish comfort.

Swakopmund is also known as Namibia's "doorway to the Skeleton Coast" and the town is also only a short distance from the gorgeous dunes of Sossusvlei. Where better to start exploring Namibia's inimitable desert landscape and culture and get far, far away from it all?

The Spitzkoppe Conference Centre can accommodate any function from a conference to a banquet. Up to 350 people can be seated in a variety of configurations.

Dining
The Swakopmund Hotel offers two restaurants, the Platform One, built in elegant Victorian style, offers exquisite cuisine combined with first class service, and the Captain's Tavern, where you can feast on Namibia's bountiful sea harvest of rock lobster, calamari, kabeljou and many more seafood delicacies, all prepared and served to perfection. Both restaurants have a selection of the finest wines that southern Africa has to offer.

Platform One
Befitting its Victorian theme, dinner at the Platform One Restaurant is a slightly ostentatious affair. Here you can choose the à la carte menu or a speciality buffet. Platform One also serves breakfast, lunch and light meals through the day.

Captain's Tavern
Alternatively, you can opt for the Captain's Tavern restaurant, next to the Mermaid Casino. A catch of fresh line fish, shellfish and other seafood is served straight from the Namibian waters. And nobody's better to prepare this feast than chef Louis Anuszkiewiez.
