Saffire, Freycinet

Magnificent in every detail, Saffire is defined by its subtle but chic interiors, and a fluid architectural design. Water is a strong theme here with reflective ponds, calming spas and the sanctuary’s pool. Glass has been cleverly used throughout, creating a sense that the sanctuary and the environment are the same space.

All the suites are luxuriously appointed, featuring the best in design and furnishings. The furnishings are an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary, with locally made timber pieces alongside mid-century classics such as chairs designed by Charles and Ray Eames and Herman Miller.

Beautiful though Saffire is, however, it plays second fiddle to the surrounding landscapes. The powder-white sandy beaches are as undisturbed and uncrowded as they were in the early 1800s, when French explorer Nicholas Baudin stepped ashore. Southern Right Whales continue on their annual migration in intensely turquoise waters, and wildlife roams the heath and forests in abundance.

 

MACq 01 Hotel, Hobart

A unique hotel of unlimited intrigue, MACq 01 is inspired by the stories of Tasmania and its most colourful characters. Located in the heart of the historic Hobart waterfront, this storytelling hotel offers an informal luxury setting. From the rooms and decor to the service, the food, the entertainment, the views and even the people you meet within its walls, MACq 01 has been designed to offer a quintessentially Tasmanian experience like no other. Inside the hotel, you’ll encounter the essence of Tasmania amidst a cornucopia of delights: fresh Tassie produce, a roaring open fire, trinkets and curiosities of the distant past, touches of live entertainment, all surrounded by the stories and characters that have made Tasmania the unforgettable place it is today.

 

Peppers Seaport Hotel, Tasmania

Peppers Seaport Hotel offers luxurious, boutique accommodation with views overlooking the confluence of the North Esk and Tamar River. The hotel has been built on the site of an old dry dock in the heart of Launceston’s Old Seaport, and has been designed to resemble a ship. The nautical theme continues to the hotel’s décor with historical black and white photographs of the harbour adorning the walls. Choose to stay in either a Studio Room or spacious Suite with separate living and dining areas. All rooms benefit from a private balcony with views overlooking the marina, wharf strip or town, as well as complimentary Wi-Fi, full mini bar and babysitting services on request.

Breakfast can be enjoyed in the relaxed waterfront atmosphere of the Cube Café, while Mud Bar and Restaurant offers a fresh and modern twist on Tasmanian cuisine complemented by an extensive list of local wines. Just a short stroll from the hotel you will also find many cafés, restaurant and bars comprising the town’s thriving marina.

When exploring Launceston and the Tamar Valley, there are many local activities to enjoy; from spa treatments at Cinergee or a round of golf on one of Australia’s top ten courses to mountain biking and nature walks through the alpine wilderness. We recommend a scenic heli-flight over iconic Wineglass Bay.
