Olive Grove will immediately surprise and seduce you, combining great elegance with an informal atmosphere, a classically-styled house with refined contemporary décor. The original house has been preserved with its beautiful Indonesian wooden doors and its stairway up to a stone tower.....

.... Harmony is achieved through the use of natural colours of grey and ochre, while huge bay windows in wrought iron, a material also used in the outside furniture, bring in the light. Bedrooms are minimalist in style and equipped with every possible comfort. Original hanging lights from Morocco add a warm, oriental touch and their shadows form magical, abstract patterns on the walls. Bathrooms are equally marvellous, created in this same spirit of Zen and the Orient. The guests (and they seem to love this) can enjoy a jacuzzi, found on a terrace on the first floor. A modern kitchen opens convivially onto the elegant dining room, allowing you to observe the preparation of the dishes. These are served on the terrace, warmed in winter by gas lamps. Roger and Lindy - and their pet animals - divide their time between Olive Grove and Erongo Wilderness Lodge, near Omaruru, ensuring a caring eye is kept on your well-being. And they are not resting on their laurels either. They have recently opened a brand-new exclusive suite with a private pool, surrounded by olive trees. And they also have a Wellness Room offering massages, waxes, facials, pedicures. This whole place is wonderfully relaxing and perfect for restoring energy.
