The town of Knysna is the epitome of picturesque, as is the majority of the Garden Route. Quaint streets, quirky shops, and the expansive Knysna lagoon are all a part of what makes the area so photogenic. We may be biased but we think the Turbine is one of the many picture-worthy spots. Therefore, we’ve compiled some of the best images taken at the Turbine Hotel & Spa in 2018 by our wonderful guests. Have a look at some of the top pictures below!
As a power station in a previous life, the Turbine Hotel & Spa is full of unique features and funky industrial-chic decor, perfect for a photographic memento of your stay. After teaming up with the Knysna Fine Arts Gallery, many of the Turbine’s walls are adorned with some incredible art pieces one would be amiss not to capture on film. If a snapshot is not enough, the artwork is for sale.
Venturing away from the hotel, one of the most fantastic spots for a photo is the iconic Knysna Heads, a must when exploring the town on foot or by boat. However, be aware of your proximity to the heads as, despite the calm appearance of the narrow channel, the tidal pull and rocks make it the second most dangerous shipping channel in the world, second only to Christchurch in New Zealand. We recommend appreciating from a safe distance!
For those interested in adventure and photography, there are few better things than to go and explore the legendary Knysna Forest on a 3km or 9km guided hike.
If you have yet to experience the magic of Knysna, make sure to take advantage of our latest specials. For those attending our Christmas and New Year’s Eve events, there is sure to be a photo opportunity or 10, so bring your camera along and capture some of the last moments in 2018.
