“We are excited to announce that the Am Weinberg Hotel will join the Gondwana Collection portfolio on 01 February 2022 in a management capacity,” says Gys Joubert, the CEO of Gondwana Collection Namibia. “We are honoured that there is so much trust in our brand and in our ability to run this iconic Windhoek hotel, it’s been a long-time dream for Gondwana Collection Namibia to add a hotel in the capital city to our Collection. The stylish hotel impeccably blends old world allure with the comforts of the twenty-first century.”
The Gondwana team will maintain the quality of ‘Am Weinberg’, which will now be called ‘The Weinberg’, while infusing the Gondwana charm and magic that has earned the group its reputation worldwide. The company anticipates a seamless transition and foresees a fruitful collaboration with the entire team of hotel employees, which it welcomes into the Gondwana family, and the accomplished hotel manager, Janet Wilson-Moore.
Situated near the city centre and a short drive from the Hosea Kutako International Airport, The Weinberg is well suited for both leisure travellers as well as professionals, and provides an ideal venue for conferences, events and celebrations. The intimate hotel offers 41-roomes, centred around the fountain courtyard and 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. As Gondwana Collection Namibia takes over the hotel, the Sky Lounge will be closed for maintenance as from 01 February.
“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,” says Janet Wilson-Moore, the new General Manager of the hotel and the Hotel Collection for Gondwana.
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.
