October Spoil


Win two nights for two people at the quirky Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa in Knysna

The 5-star Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa, on the gorgeous Thesen Islands in Knysna, started life as a power station … and its distinctive architecture pays homage to its old life.

With luxurious accommodation – a mixture of well-appointed luxury and standard rooms, a honeymoon suite and two expansive self-contained suites adjacent to the hotel, as well as exceptional food and stunning views, this boutique hotel is a highly desirable stopover on the Garden Route … be it for the night or a week.

Quirky and original, like the artwork by local SA artists on the walls which are for sale, there’s a 90-seater Island Café Restaurant, with inside tables nestled between the original turbines and outside tables overlooking the canal, where you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner daily (if one of the monthly food and wine pairings is scheduled for when you visit, make sure you book … brilliant), as well as a viby Gastro Pub … all classic pub meals with a delicious Turbine twist, and live music every Friday evening.

The Turbine Spa has a wide range of treatments for hotel guests and day visitors and the Turbine Water Club can arrange a variety of water and land-based activities … think lagoon cruises, forest walks and bicycle hire. Plus … you’re on Thesen Island! The restaurants. The boutiques. The shopping! All swoon, swoon and swoon! Details: turbinehotel.co.za, Facebook @Turbine Hotel & Spa, and Instagram @turbinehotel.

To stand in line to win, pop over to Facebook or Instagram, find the post and follow the prompts. Entries close 25 October. Winners will be selected from across all Get It platforms.
