If you’re heading out along the Garden Route for a breakaway remember that Knysna is beautiful and magical all year round and that it is home to one of South Africa’s most unusual hotels. Revamped from a historical wood-burning power station into a quirky hotel-of-note, the Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa adds another dimension to that magic.
The 5-star hotel is situated on Thesen Islands in Knysna. The intuitive architecture pays homage to the old power station it once was. Accommodation comprises luxury hotel rooms, standard rooms, a honeymoon suite and two expansive self-contained suites adjacent to the hotel.
