While the outdoor pool lets guests recline in cool water while taking in the surrounds.


If you’re looking to just get away from it all, the health and hydro/medical spa centre provides a wide range of treatments, massages and health activities.

Enjoy a meal at the newly renovated restaurant or just enjoy watching the sunset as you sip on an ice-cold rock shandy after a good hot soaking.

Around the Resort

If you feel like striking out from the resort you can take a wander along the banks of Swakop River or set out on a bush walk to clear your mind. With the natural springs that the resort is built near comes a very different type of ecology – the humid climate and concentrated area means you have a chance of spotting one of the 150 bird species at Gross Barmen. So bring your binoculars and bird books if you are a keen birder.

If you’d like to soak up the atmosphere for more than just a day, there’s plenty of refurbished accommodation at the resort to choose from:
