Saffire Freycinet, Tasmania
Saffire is an awe-inspiring coastal sanctuary, stunningly positioned on the Freycinet Peninsula on Tasmania’s East Coast. Inspirational in its design and location, Saffire undoubtedly provides one of Australia’s most spellbinding luxury experiences. The Freycinet Peninsula is a fully protected National Park and is home to the internationally acclaimed Wineglass Bay – and a walk with an informative guide to the Wineglass Bay Lookout is a ‘must’ during your stay.
Saffire overlooks the pristine waters and wide expanses of Great Oyster Bay where migrating whales and dolphins come to play. Local farms produce fresh succulent oysters and fishing boats bring in their daily catch of rock lobster, scallops and deep sea fish straight from the ocean. The dominant view from every window is the pink-hued granite of the peninsula’s Hazards Mountains, providing a spectacular and ever-changing backdrop from morning to nightfall.
Designed by award-winning Tasmanian architects, Saffire captures the very essence of its unique setting. In addition, it has been built using a framework of environmental sustainability. The glass used has a low percentage of reflectivity, ensuring maximum impact when admiring the surrounding dramatic coastal beauty.
Local culinary delights are a highlight of the dining experience at Saffire. The chefs craft menus which highlight the finest regional produce from Tasmania’s East Coast – and in the superb Palate restaurant, the dining experience can be tailored to suit all tastes and schedules.
Boutique in size, each of the 20 suites has been created with the utmost privacy in mind whilst still capturing the magnificent views. All feature an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional – and all boast WiFi internet access, flat screen televisions and mini-bars stocked with complimentary premium Tasmanian produce, wine and beers.
With a wealth of activities on your doorstep in the Freycinet National Park, this is a place to revive and rejuvenate. There’s a world of deserted islands, wild bushland and secluded beaches just waiting to be explored. You can spot wonderful wildlife, go quad biking or take a sunset walk along Honeymoon Bay. With a guide, you can visit a working oyster farm or enjoy walks around the Peninsula including a ‘must-see’ hike to the Wineglass Bay Lookout. The Schouten Island half day experience is highly recommended (bookings are essential)…..and at the end of an exhilarating day, you can relax and restore your wellbeing at Spa Saffire which uses products developed with pure blue sapphire dust to enliven you with radiant energy …..only in Tasmania!
