About The Stiltz

About The Stiltz

The Stiltz is situated on the outskirts of Swakopmund minutes away from restaurants and bars. Each of the 9 large, airy bungalows are connected by wooden walkways and are built on stilts offering great views of the sand dunes, Atlantic Ocean or nearby lagoon.

There is a central area where guests can enjoy breakfasts. We recommend “The Tug” restaurant in Swakopmund for some fantastic dinners, but make sure you book in advance.

There is also a luxury villa sleeping up to 6 people, this is comprised of 2 stories with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

The reception area is ground level and the staff are more than helpful. The breakfast room is on stilts and has a small lounge area with a large window for fantastic panoramic views of the ocean. There is a laundry service available at The Stiltz.


The Stiltz serves a fantastic, substantial buffet breakfast and you can see the chefs cooking away in the kitchen. There are some fantastic restaurants and cafes you can head to for lunch and dinner. Swakopmund’s renowned restaurant, The Tug, is nearby and definitely worth a visit!
