Truly a place “where time becomes art,” Villa Margherita is one of the three “Charming Houses” in the city of Swakopmund along Namibia’s Skeleton Coast.
More like a spacious colonial villa than a traditional hotel, Villa Margherita combines exceptional accommodation with unparalleled service. Only eight double rooms with fifteen well-trained staff members ensure that each guest’s needs are serviced in a friendly, prompt, and professional manner. There are six spacious rooms with double beds and en suite bathrooms with a shower. Each room come with a quaint name and theme including the King, the Queen, Romeo and Juliet, Eden, Lady Hamilton, Nelson, and the Cottage. The Adam and Eve room features twin beds and both a shower and bath. Each room offers amenities such as flat screen television, safe, free wireless internet, and more. Most rooms are spacious enough to provide a private lounge area as well.
Once a townhouse, the hotel is located in Nambia’s quaint seaside town of Swakopmund. Where the dunes meet the sea on the western edge of the Namib Desert, the city was founded at the time of the German colonial expansion into Africa. There are a host of activities to be enjoyed locally. Fishing tours can be arranged with local operators that also provide tackle. The nearby ocean has many excellent edible species including kob, white steenbras, galjoen, and kolstert, while a number of large shark species can be caught and released.
