You’d be hard-pressed to find a situation in which monotony could ever be considered a good thing and even if you’re just switching up your brand of toothpaste or disinfectant every couple of months, you need a bit of variety in life. Of course, spending an evening doing needlepoint instead of watching your favourite soapie can be refreshing, but sometimes what you really need is a change of scenery. Rather than pitch a tent in the middle of some scenic nowhere, pay R3210 for a two-night weekend stay at the Hilton Windhoek for up to two guests.
Nestled right in the heart of
Namibia’s capital city, the Hilton Windhoek combines contemporary African style
with the swish comfort you see in the movies. Within shouting distance from
some of Namibia’s best historical and tourist attractions and kitted out with
all of the swanky luxury that make’s a night at the Hilton something even
movie-stars talk about, there’s really no better place to get away, whether you’re a tourist, touring wanna-be rockstar or
just looking to get out of your own house for a while.
Even if you don’t feel like taking in the sights or smells of tourist culture and historic monuments, there’s nothing stopping you from keeping cosy in your hotel room for the entire weekend. Play pillow-fights on the luxurious king-sized bed or watch your favourite movies on the LCD TV. If you do feel the need to interact with the outside world, you could always do some instant-messaging on the high-speed internet. Whatever you do, you’ll be surrounded by chic décor inspired by Africa – right down to the elegant rain-shower in the bathroom. Because surrounding yourself with luxury sometimes isn’t enough to give you that really swank and pampered feeling, you’ll also be treated to a fifty-minute full-body massage to kick-start your weekend decompression. With muscles turned to butter and feeling less like the marble that daily life often turns them into, it’ll be much easier to sink into the plush comfort of your room.
On your first night,
when you manage to shake yourself from the daze the luxury will no doubt put
you in, drag yourself down to Ekipa restaurant for a buffet dinner and tuck in
to some internationally-flavoured tasty treats. You’ll also receive a cocktail
voucher to redeem at the rooftop Sky Bar, which offers stunning views of the
city, or at Kalabar as well as a complimentary evening cocktail. Perfect for an end-of-week getaway, a romantic
getaway or just a getaway to watch The
Getaway, two nights at the Hilton Windhoek are the simplest way to replace
daily-drudgery with some refreshed and fresh-faced relaxation.
To ensure your morning kicks off in
the same style as the night, you’ll also be treated to a Continental buffet
breakfast and a complimentary high-tea to tide you over during the day.

Hotel Fact: The CRAZY TOWN hotel in east-Texas was a getaway destination created especially for celebrities looking to take some time out from their busy lives. The hotel keeps half of its accommodation open for non-celebrities, though rooms need to be booked as far as ten years in advance. All guests at the hotel need to wear baseball caps, fake glasses and stick-on moustaches at all times.
