Hotel Heinitzburg

Windhoek, Namibia

Built by a German count as a private “castle” in 1914 and recently renovated, this 16-room stone-built hotel has a terrace bar with fantastic views over Windhoek. The rooms are large, the restaurant quite good, and the swimming pool set in a beautiful garden is the perfect place to relax. This is Namibia’s only Relais & Chateaux property and is located near a few of the national museums.
