The Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa was an ambitious project which transformed an old power station into a unique 5 star boutique Knysna hotel. All the old machinery which was used in this power station has been lovingly restored and forms an integral part of the hotel’s aesthetics.
The hotel offers guests a choice of seventeen standard rooms, six luxury rooms, a honeymoon suite, and an optional self-catering Lagoon Suite. Each of the rooms provide luxurious amenities such as a flat screen TV, Wi-fi, a fully-stocked mini bar, and a tea and coffee station.
The 90-seater Island Café restaurant at the Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa overlooks the stunning canal, and serves up extraordinary dishes from a diverse a la carte menu. The Gastro Pub and Deck, on the other hand, allows guests to enjoy watching the sun go down, whilst sipping on something from the extensive drinks menu, and filling up on an imaginative pub-style variety of snacks. Also featured on-site is the Col’Cacchio pizzeria, which produces mouth-watering Italian cuisine.
The Turbine Spa is one of the finest on the Garden Route, offering guests a wide variety of relaxing treatments from massages to facials and a Rhassoul Steam Room.
Another popular feature is the Turbine Adventure Centre, providing guests with the best Knysna water-based activities, including pontoon cruises, fishing charters, whale watching and kayak hire as well as adventures on land with guided forest tours and bicycle hire.
