Sam's Giardino - Guest Services
The Giardino Experience we create for our guests entails a wide range of services - most are included in our overnight tariffs, some are optional, and your requests for additional ones can usually be met too.
"We can" is part of our philosophy, as are attentive, discreet services and attention to detail. Guests enjoying every aspect of their stay with us and taking home a holistic picture of Namibia, is what we'd like to achieve.
There is plenty at our guesthouse to enrich a few hours
or days of rest with meaningful entertainment, from
lazing in the gardens in the company of a good book and a glass of
wine to planning your activities for the days ahead.
The toughest part of your stay will be to take your daily
pick from countless options, for which cosy lounges housing lots of info
and entertaining material
are at your disposal, as much as our first-hand
experiences of Namibia.
room availability can be checked and rooms be booked online.
