About Turbine Hotel & Spa
The Turbine Hotel and Spa is a boutique 5 star Hotel in Knysna which offers guests an extra special experience. This exceptional hotel in Knysna is situated on Thesen Islands which is considered one of the most the prestigious locations on the Garden Route.
The Turbine Hotel and Spa was an ambitious project which transformed the old power station into a unique 5 star boutique hotel on the Garden Route with a massive wow factor. All the old machinery which was used in this power station has been loving restored and forms an integral part of the hotels aesthetics.
The creative recycling of this old building and the implementation of several energy saving measures stands as a laudable example of environmental sustainability and a respect for Knysna’s architectural heritage.
The Turbine Hotel is surrounded by water on three sides. The Hotel comprises the Island Café (a la carte restaurant, seating 90 people) and Tapas Bar, as well as twenty four (17 standard suites, six luxury suites and one honeymoon suite) individually themed suites of the highest standard. The hotel has a rim flow pool with deck facing onto the canal. Common areas include an art gallery showcasing emerging local SA talent. Our Water Club also offers an ATM and the Deli is a Wi-Fi hotspot.
The Turbine Water Club offers al fresco dining from our deli, oysters from our champagne bar and a wide variety of activities on both land and the Knysna lagoon.
The Amani Spa offers the ultimate escape for pure self-indulgence with double and single treatment rooms, rasul, mani / pedi chair.
