Winter Treats at The Turbine


Prepare now for your 2018 winter holidays… and with some clever planning and early booking, you’ll be able to save yourself a penny or two.

If you’re heading out along the Garden Route consider a breakaway at one of South Africa’s most unusual hotels – The Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa, situated on the Thesen Islands, Knysna – and take advantage of its great winter and advance booking offers. Knysna is beautiful at any time of year but there’s something magical about this little town in the deep of winter, and the 5-star Turbine – revamped from an historical wood-burning power station – makes the perfect base for a warming winter weekend.

There are three Winter-warming offers valid from 2 April through to 30 September 2018: a 15% discount for a one-night stay; a 20% discount for a two-night stay or more (minimum two nights) and a 30% discount for a three-night stay or more (minimum three nights).

Then there is the Advance Purchase/Early Booking offer – valid until 08 January 2019 – where, if you book at least 60 days in advance, for a (minimum) two-night stay you’ll be rewarded with 12% off your accommodation, or for a (minimum) three-night stay, less 15% off your accommodation!

Terms and conditions apply. All these offers only apply to adults sharing, include a delicious breakfast, are subject to availability and exclude peak season, including the Easter Weekend (30 March – 1 April 2018).

There is always plenty to do – even in winter! Aside from kayaking in the canals, sunset cruises on the lagoon, hiking into the ancient Knysna Forest or paragliding from the mountains across the beautiful bays, there is also the town’s most famous celebration – the Knysna Oyster Festival in July, the flamboyant Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Parade in April/May, and the Knysna Motor Show also in April, followed by the Jaguar Simola Hill Climb (classic car displays and adventurous races) early in May.
