The very nice management at The Stiltz upgraded us to the 3 bedroom 3 bathroom Villa, just to be nice. Very comfortable and well-appointed. The location, right on the beach at the mouth of the Swakop river, is an easy walk to downtown, and wonderful Jetty 1905!

A fun, unusual, romantic small hotel that we fell in love with! One look at it and you understand that it was built and is maintained with an eye for detail and a heap of cool design ideas. The staff's full of good ideas and the beds are very comfy!

The Stilts is just that built and held up by stilts and when the wind blows one can actually feel the room move as if on a boat swaying.My one complaint would be as a solo traveller the mood lighting really annoys me so one needs to be able to adjust the density of the light which you do need...

We stayed for 2 nights with our 3 children in a big Villa in the Stiltz. The Villa is enormous and amazing, with all comfort you may need. During the night it was very cold but all rooms had electric blankets and heating. Staff was very friendly and helpfull. Breakfast was very good and well presented. From the hotel you...

We didnt even want to leave the room! Breakfast was delicious and all the staff were very helpful and friendly. Only downside was the...

The offering at the Stiltz, Swakopmund, Namibia is an experience with a difference. The accommodation is perched atop wooden stilts with the intention of capturing the sights around its location. The main attraction, the dunes in this desert town is very visible, together with the sea that lies in close proximity. This resort has an added advantage- the number of...

Located near the mouth of the Swakop river and overlooking the dune belt. I don't think any other (current) establishment provides a good view over the river mouth and the dune belt. The raised rooms allows for everything from insects up to go about their normal natural life under the buildings. Probably best suited for a short stay up to...

On a motorcyle tour of Namibia we spent 2 nights at this awesome spot. The rooms are done in impecable taste and have a real funky appearance. Of the friendliest people in Namibia work here. It is quiet, close to everything, but not in the centre of Swakopmund. Great breakfast. This is a must for anyone staying over in Swakopmund....

First time at The Stiltz and it was a winner! In the past we usually booked at one of the top hotels in Swakop. This time I travelled with 2 friends from Germany and we decided on the “Villa” at The Stiltz. A three bedroom villa with more than enough room to facilitate a family of 6. From the décor...
