Saffire Freycinet brings a dizzy new level of luxe accommodation to Tasmania’s ecotourism portfolio. The drive from the Hobart Airport is long and tedious but you forget all about it or feel the trouble has been worth it when you arrive at the lovely Freycinet Peninsula. The panorama is so serene, so gorgeously Australian, so pristine in its raw beauty that it is mesmerizing.
It was once a caravan holiday park site overlooking Muirs Beach. But now it has 20 single storey suites strung in pairs in a curved line, all facing the coast and available in three categories. Once you reach there you realize that Australia has finally grasped the luxury lodge concept which has been almost perfected by New Zealand in its rustic reaches.
Australia is catching up fast and have recently formed the Luxury Lodges of Australia group. Wolgan Valley, owned by Emirates, Lord Howe Island’s Capella and South Australia’s Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island are all at the fore front of this growing movement in Australia. They have worked hard to create their credentials and reputations for the best of regional food and wine. If you love the nature and want to explore it first hand Saffire Freycinet offers you the opportunity you might not get easily any where else.
