A once trusted wood-fired turbine power station, now transformed into luxurious quarters and chic talking point. This Knysna Power Station Hotel has been restored to its rightful landmark status on Knysna's exclusive Thesen Island. Chrome-finished dials and retro pressure gauge complete this unique five-star space, affirming its authentic character.
An undeniable devotion to balance is especially evident at the Amani Spa, where Arabic body rituals unite the four fundamental elements: earth, air, fire and water. Serenity is standard throughout with sundowners and tapas the order of the day. Epicureans will delight in fresh al fresco flavours and the Diners Club Platinum Award winning wine list.
Turbine Hotel is a memorable tribute to the past - an example of retrofit gone right.
The Turbine Hotel and Spa offers up 24 individually styled rooms and suites surround the central hall where beautifully preserved machinery tells tales of a hardworking past.
All rooms boast beautiful, individual décor and artwork, comfortable extra-length king beds, en-suite bathrooms, and air-conditioning.
The Island Cafe; This 90 seat restaurant creates a unique environment for all meals. Tables overlook the canal, pool deck or are nestled between the originally refurbished turbines. Warm, open fireplaces and majestic sliding glass doors allow us to maximise and match the ambience and weather conditions. The Island café has won the prestigious 2010/11 Diners Club Platinum Award for its wine list.
The Turbine Tapas Bar & Deck; Enjoy a sundowner or a tasty bite from the menu at the Tapas bar which is built around the hotel's fifth turbine or just relax on the deck for casual drinks & tapas on those balmy evenings overlooking the canals & jetties and enjoy the legendary Knysna lagoon sunsets.
