Recharge the tur­bines

Pretoria News Weekend - - WELLNESS -

MOTORHAPPY, a divi­sion of the Im­pe­rial group, teamed up with the 5-star Tur­bine Bou­tique Ho­tel and Spa to high­light road trip­ping along the Gar­den Route, namely the Th­e­sen Is­land in Knysna.

Ul­ti­mate Jour­ney, now in its sec­ond year, is call­ing on South Africans to map out their favourite lo­cal des­ti­na­tions on to its web­site at www.ul­ti­mate­jour­ney. co.za and stand a chance to win a R80 000 road trip in a Kia Sportage SUV on loan for the spe­cial jour­ney.

Those who vote for their favourite spot will also stand a chance to scoop the prize (terms and con­di­tions ap­ply). The Tur­bine Bou­tique Ho­tel and Spa was an am­bi­tious project which trans­formed an old power sta­tion into a unique 5-star bou­tique ho­tel in Knysna.

All the old ma­chin­ery which was used in this power sta­tion has been lov­ingly re­stored and forms an in­te­gral part of the ho­tel’s aes­thet­ics.

There is al­ways plenty to do in Knysna. Aside from kayak­ing in the canals or paraglid­ing from the moun­tains across the beau­ti­ful bays, there are also many fes­ti­vals from the An­tique & Clas­sic Boat show and the Eden Kite Fes­ti­val in Oc­to­ber to the Leisure Isle Fes­ti­val, a gen­uine craft mar­ket where vis­i­tors are en­cour­aged to “buy lo­cal”, and the Knysna Ex­treme Triathlon in Novem­ber. The Tur­bine Spa has a wide range of treat­ments for day vis­i­tors and ho­tel guests, and the ho­tel’s very own ad­ven­ture cen­tre, the Tur­bine Wa­ter Club, ar­ranges a va­ri­ety of wa­terand land-based ac­tiv­i­ties such as la­goon cruises, for­est walks and bi­cy­cle hire.
