Originally the site was a Rhenish mission station established in 1844. Ruins of mission can still be seen. The missionaries gave the station it's name Gross Barmen, having previously been called Otjikango Otjinene (Herero for "large fountain").

The accommodation options at Gross Barmen include family, bush chalets and camping sites. Amenities and facilities include indoor and outdoor thermal pools, conference facilities, restaurant, bar and shop. The nearby dam attracts more than 150 different species of birds making it a hotspot for birdwatching. The resort operates from 06h00 until 22h00.
The nearby Von Bach Dam 25 km outside of Okahandja just off main B1 highway, is also a favourite spot for water sport lovers and anglers, with attractive picnic spots and fishing sites along the banks of the dam.
