Shifting the bar skyward
Am Weinberg Estate in Windhoek has become the talk of the town amongst modern-day residential and commercial property seekers. Comprising luxurious residential townhouses (to rent and for sale), as well as amenities such as prime office suites, two restaurants, a delicatessen, a 5-star day spa, boutique hotel, conference centre and two glasshouse venues, the development on 13 Jan Jonker in Klein Windhoek is a dynamic village in itself.
The old fountain now serves Soulstice Day Spa. The reliable supply of water was previously used by the padres of the Roman Catholic mission station, which was established on this hill in the late 1800s, for cultivating grapevines – hence the name Am Weinberg (vineyard). Now, anybody can spoil themselves or loved ones at the spa with a “sparty package”, whether for a girls’ day out, a baby shower or a bridal shower.
On that note: Am Weinberg is also a sought-after wedding venue. But not exclusively. Its central location makes it ideal for corporate meetings, training sessions, focus groups, conferences, product launches or private events. For smaller events with a distinctive touch, two glasshouses overlooking the city offer the ideal venue.
Both locals and visitors enjoy the most exquisite views from the Sky Lounge while sipping on a drink accompanied by delicious tapas. How about sliced braised pork belly with chilli and ginger caramel, pickled beetroot, potato puree and flame-charred onions?
Am Weinberg Boutique Hotel has taken the luxury accommodation standards to a higher level. Upon entering the hotel, it feels like walking into a faraway place. The main area is characterised by marble floors, colourful paintings and carpets, shiny crystal chandeliers, and an eclectic mix of elegant and comfy sofas and chairs. Decor is tasteful. Space and light aplenty. Top-notch service. The wine lounge invites you to unwind with a glass of the finest selection.
If you are visiting Windhoek, either on vacation or for business, opt for one of the 41 elegantly furnished rooms, either overlooking the courtyard or with a view of the city skyline or the mountains. For longer sojourns, the lofts are highly recommended.
