It is expected that the popular resort will re-open in the upcoming months, following a closure of almost three years, the resort is scheduled to open it’s glitzy new doors soon.

“After the completion of the project, the resort will consists of high-class facilities on par with international standards, which would include revamped accommodation facilities, an office and administration building, conference centre, restaurant, outside and inside pools, Spa, shop facilities, and reception areas,” says NWR acting Managing Director Zelna Hengari.


The Gross Barmen Hot Springs Resort is situated about 100kms north of Windhoek and 25kms from the town of Okahandja and has been closed for redevelopment since 2011. The site was handed over to the company Namibia Construction (NC) in September 2011. A huge capital injection of about N$220 million was earmarked for the re-development project.

The accommodation facilities were completed at a cost of N$64 million.

For those looking for a home away from home for this coming holiday season, Gross Barmen will officially start taking bookings from the 1st of December 2014. The public is free to log onto our website for information relating to the pricing.
