Knysna is beautiful at any time of year, but there’s something extra magical about this picturesque little town in the quiet of winter. When the crowds depart and crisper evenings arrive, the Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa makes the perfect base for a warming winter weekend. There’s plenty to do too, and the Turbine is offering special packages built around a series of events that make Knysna the cultural capital of the Garden Route.
The Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Parade will bring a flamboyant party touch to town from 26 April to 01 May with floats, performers and DJs and a variety of shows held throughout the town.
Perol heads can get their motors revving with the Knysna Motor Show on 30 April followed by the Jaguar Simola Hill Climb from 04 to 07 May, which brings classic car displays and adventurous races.
The town’s most famous celebration is the Knysna Oyster Festival from 07 to 16 July, when visitors will enjoy the freshest seafood, exquisite wines from local vineyards, sports challenges and live entertainment.
Whatever the reason you’re in town, the Turbine is an oasis of calm amid the activity, with its luxurious spa, elegant restaurant and welcoming Gastro Pub. Quirky touches abound, with individually styled bedrooms created in the historic shell of a former power station.
