The Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa, situated on the Thesen Islands, Knysna is not only a holiday destination or a weekend getaway retreat – it is also a desirable conference venue for top executive conferences and meetings for those who want excellent accommodation and service within a funky environment.
The unique 5-star hotel, revamped from an historical wood-burning power station, provides one of the best locations for events on the Garden Route – its two conference rooms provide a seamless blend of luxury and technology.
The Boiler Room (built inside the old wood-fire burner boiler) and the Yellowwood Room can each host 20 to 40 delegates, and are air-conditioned with free Wi-Fi and full audio-visual facilities. Tailored catering packages are available. They are ideal for intimate meetings, larger conferences and weddings.
And on offer right now is a Special to beat all specials!
If you have reached that point where you just want to spread out a little, or are desperate for a change of scenery to really get the brainstorming going… for a weekly staff meeting, or that big pitch… well, the Turbine would love to be a part of your journey.
There are a few 1 to 2 – hour midweek meeting slots available in the conference rooms – there is no charge and you can conveniently run a tab for coffees, teas and anything else for that matter…. and ice cold water with lemon in jugs will be provided free of charge. If you don’t want to use the big conference rooms, then you can just get a table for yourself (and your laptop of course) at the Island Cafe anytime, and enjoy a delicious Business Breakfast (R80) which includes Scrambled eggs, bacon, steak, caramelised onions, homemade ciabatta and a Lavazza cappuccino.
Benefits of these conference venues include the magnificent location on Thesen Islands, surrounded by water on three sides; 5-star accommodation; many on-site dining options; dedicated and experienced staff to assist with event co-ordination and The Turbine Spa which offers the ultimate escape for pure self-indulgence.
