Known for its gorgeousness, Knysna has become my top favorite for a lovely vacation. And to make my vacation all the more exciting and superb I had the pleasure of the most beautiful hotel I came across- Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa.
A Little About The Property
This property was once a power station. But now it is transformed into a 5-star boutique hotel and spa. And the best part is this hotel still has it sold charm with all the dated machinery of the power station stored to give guests an epic vibe.
Have you ever wondered what a power station can actually be changed into a boutique hotel? And not just any hotel it is a 5-star place with all the luxury amenities that one can think of. First of all, the rooms are super exotic. There are six luxury rooms and they are all theme based. I booked one such luxury room for me and I must say nothing can get better than what I experienced. One can also book Standard rooms or go for Honeymoon suites if you want to cherish love moments. There are two special guest rooms available and they are Lagoon and Canal suites. As for my room it was well equipped with a plush bed, lounge and bar area and everything was loaded with comfort and coziness.
I must say I had food adventure at the two extraordinary places named the Gastro pub and the Island Cafe because I ate some of the exquisite cuisines that I have never tasted before. I would never forget the smell and the taste as it feels still raw to me. The Island cafe overlooks both the deck and the canal and is a spacious place to enjoy soothing morning and charismatic evening. One can choose from the varieties of dishes prepared freshly to make your day.
The best part of the Gastro pub is that it is a great place if you love the sophisticated decor and want to grab the finest drink. This place has a classy chic look that caters luxurious food and drinks.
The Turbine Spa is a place where you can just let go of all the jet lag and tiredness. Just relax and feel pampered. Here you can have some of the best facial and body treatments and it is a unisex spa where even couples can indulge in a rejuvenating spa time.
The Turbine Water Club provides amazing water sports opportunities to the guests such as Lagoon Cruise, Sunset Cruise or you may hire a bicycle to explore around. The kayak hiring and exploring is another nice way to feel the adventure of the Knysna.
Exclusive Event Venues
The Garden Route is a grand place for having events such as corporate meeting, conferences, weddings, and special occasions. At Turbine, there are two conference facilities so that people looking for private meeting places can arrange everything systematically. And if someone wishes to organize a marriage ceremony in this wonderful location, then this boutique offers a fabulous venue for it. The Lagoon side of the property is specifically designed keeping in mind the demand of the theme wedding these days. I explored each and every corner of the conference and wedding venues and now I can say that the entire place is absolutely perfect for any type of events.
Who says you just need to stay inside your hotel room. You can find yourself some of the awesome things to do in Knysna. If you are a sports lover, you can enjoy your time in one of the golf course such as The Pezula Championship course which is designed for golf. The Garden Route is a popular location where you can go for a day trip and visit the Bramon Wine Estate. Along with this, you can also take a short trip around the Cango caves and the Oudtshoorn farm. Too far. Plettenberg Bay or Wilderness.
Anyone Can Visit
This boutique hotel is simply perfect for couples, honeymooners, family or group travelers. It is a stunning property and makes you feel at home away from home.
Once you plan to visit Knysna just like me, it would be like a dream come true with Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa.
