January 20, 2022 670

Am Weinberg Hotel will join the Gondwana portfolio with effect from the 1st of February 2022 in a management capacity.

“We are honored that there is so much trust in our brand and in our ability to run this iconic Windhoek hotel, which will now be proudly owned and managed by Namibians,” said Gys Joubert, the CEO of Gondwana Collection Namibia.

“As Gondwana Collection Namibia takes over the hotel, the Sky Lounge will be closed for maintenance as from 01 February.”

The development which will see the hotel renamed ‘The Weinberg’, with Janet Wilson-Moore appointed General Manager, comes as Gondwana Collection Namibia has been looking for an opportunity to add a hotel in the capital city to its collection.

“The Gondwana team will maintain the quality of ‘Am Weinberg’, which will now be called ‘The Weinberg’, while imbuing the Gondwana charm and magic that has earned the group its reputation worldwide.”

“It is exciting, to engage with a new team that is so excited to join the Gondwana Family. Beyond that, after two difficult years in tourism, we now have the opportunity to lead this hotel into a brilliant new future,” said Wilson-Moore.

The 41-roomed intimate hotel, centred around the fountain courtyard offers direct access to the facilities of the Am Weinberg Estate, including; Soulstice Day-Spa, Cape Town Fish Market, Butcher’s Block and Olivia’s Kitchen, to name but a few.

The Am Weinberg Estate takes its name from the vineyards (‘weinberg’ being the German word for ‘vineyard’) that once graced its hills at the turn of the twentieth century when the Roman Catholic Mission built a chapel and cultivated grapes for communion wine. In later years the vineyards were expanded to include table wines until production ceased in the 1980’s. The century old heritage building forms part of the heart of the property, and the hotel exudes the atmosphere of a quality wine, gently matured over the years.

Gondwana currently runs about 23 properties across Namibia.
