Situated on the picturesque Thesen Island, featuring luxury accommodation options, breathtaking panoramas, and a wide variety of event facilities, the boutique Turbine Hotel & Spa is an idyllic Knysna wedding venue.
Firstly, in terms of set-up, the Turbine hotel boasts two spacious state-of-the-art function rooms, both of which seat 20 guests boardroom style, and 40 guests cinema style. For a larger wedding party, they can be set up inter-leading for more space. For weddings of up to 100 guests, the on-site Island Cafe is a vastly popular choice. Tables overlook either the canal, pool deck, or are nestled between the original, refurbished turbines. Sliding glass doors maximise space, and create a seamless transition between outdoors and in.
The lush lawn area outside the restaurant is often utilized for wedding ceremonies, and is truly magnificent setting, with the tranquil Knysna lagoon forming a spectacular backdrop.
On the wedding night, this Knysna hotel invites the wedding couple to spend a night in the Honeymoon Suite free of charge. Enticingly, the wedding guests are also granted a 10% discount on accommodation for the night of wedding reception.
As they say, pictures speak louder than words, and below we present a sample of the weddings held at the Turbine Hotel & Spa over the years.
