The Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa
Knysna, Garden Route
Historic, quirky, and luxurious. That’s how we’d describe the Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa in three words. An old power station has been transformed into an idyllic hotel on the canal rivers of Knysna, complete with exceptional cuisine, a top of the range spa, and stunning views. All of the old machinery in the power station now forms part of the funky décor, painted brightly in vivid colours that stand out against the bare bricks and white walls. You’ll forever be spotting unusual contraptions, massive turbines, and steel pipes – it’s a fascinating place to stay. So much so, that the rooms vary in size and shape due to the architecture, but you can be sure that it’ll be spacious and airy. Now enough about the décor and more about how you’re going to enjoy yourself staying here. The Turbine Spa is one of the finest on the Garden Route, so book yourself in for a treatment and enjoy the steam room whilst you’re at it. Whether you’re staying for business or pleasure, the Gastro Pub is a great way to end the day – enjoy a craft beer or a local wine and catch the latest sporting events whilst indulging in upmarket pub grub. When you want to get a bit more active, the Turbine Waterclub is on hand with kayak rentals, sunset cruises, and forest tours just the tip of the activities on offer. This is the perfect stop on your travels through the magic of the Garden Route.
