Video #1 of 1

Saffire Freycinet is Australia's luxury lodge on Tasmania's East Coast adjacent to Coles Bay and overlooking the Freycinet Peninsula, famed for the iconic Wineglass Bay. Delivering sophisticated and intimate style and an inspirational experience, our Tasmanian accommodation blends mankind and nature with breathtaking beauty.


Saffire Freycinet is Australia's new luxury coastal sanctuary on Tasmania's East Coast, delivering sophisticated and intimate style and an inspirational experience. Discreetly positioned overlooking the Hazards Mountains, Freycinet Peninsula and the pristine waters of Great Oyster Bay, Saffire blends mankind and nature with breathtaking beauty.

Featuring 20 luxurious suites, exclusive day spa, restaurant, guest lounge and bar, this new experience is a celebration of the art of service, internal and external wellbeing, local culinary delights, ancient landscapes and abundant wildlife.

All Saffire's 20 suites are luxuriously appointed, featuring the best in design and furnishings and capturing the unique nature of the surrounding coastline. The suites are designed to provide guests with the utmost privacy while taking in the magnificent views of the Hazards Mountains, crystal-clear blue waters and white sandy beaches. The furnishings feature 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. These suites are designed to relax and rejuvenate, indulge in reading and lazing the days away, and to encourage guests to connect with the environment to heal and restore balance.

Tasmania's East Coast boasts some of the cleanest air and water in the world, and has attracted farmers of the land and sea (including its original Aboriginal inhabitants) for tens of thousands of years. Today, it is home to a thriving combination of aquaculture and agriculture, with fine food and wine produced right on Saffire's doorstep. The climate, reminiscent of the south of France, produces stunning, flavourful cool-climate wines such as chardonnay, pinot noir and deeply layered sparkling wines that have won international acclaim. Plump, succulent oysters are farmed practically on Saffire's doorstep in the pristine waters of Great Oyster Bay. And nearby, enterprising mussel farmers have created the world's first commercial mussel hatchery at Spring Bay.

Saffire's chefs source the best of Tasmania's succulent grass-fed beef and lamb, full-flavoured game meats, fresh herbs and spices and seasonal fruit and vegetables. Head chef, Hugh Whitehouse, has had a lifetime of experience with fresh, natural produce. Hugh's passion for food spills over into a passion for people. He is a firm believer in developing the skills and enthusiasm of apprentices and nurturing them to realise their own natural talent. Hugh delights in tailoring menus and dining experiences for Saffire's guests. From recreating a favourite dish to campfire dining, to multi-course degustation menus expertly matched with wines, Hugh is committed to enhancing every dining experience. He will even pass on his culinary secrets in private cooking classes.

Saffire's restaurant, Palate, prides itself on showcasing the best Tasmania has to offer, and provides tailor-made experiences to suit all guests. From early morning to late evening, food innovation in the kitchen aims to bring out the true flavours of home-grown produce.
Multi-course degustation menus matched with the outstanding local wines are a speciality, with menus designed around what is fresh out of the water or from the paddock on any given day. If guests prefer they can consult the chef for a masterful interpretation of a favourite dish made from the finest local ingredients, or choose from the à la carte menu.

All guests can restore their wellbeing in the premium spa facilities and on-site gym. Soothe the busy mind and refresh the soul with a luxurious treatment in one of Spa Saffire's three retreat rooms overlooking the inspiring landscape and reflective pools. Treatments have been designed exclusively for Saffire by celebrity facialist Marionne De Candia and Dr Jean Laing, doctor of chiropractic and bodywork therapies.

With the Freycinet National Park on the doorstep, there's a world of deserted islands, wild bushland and secluded beaches to explore from Saffire. Saffire has developed a range of activities to suit all ages and interests, from bushwalks to gourmet picnics in remote locations and quad biking through the national park.

Saffire is one of Australia's most spellbinding natural wonders – where you can truly relax; restore your wellbeing; indulge and inspire your sense.

Review:   My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. This is the perfect place for some serious, luxurious R&R. Everything was absolute perfection from the room to the food, and the location to the hospitality. With an extra special thanks to Russell; the General Manager, Paul; the tour guide, and Taye; the masseuse from the Spa...you made our weekend a very special one and one to remember. You've set the bar very, VERY high!

Review:   Saffire Freycinet is one of the most indulgent, relaxing and private resorts I have ever visited. Even before you arrive the service starts with a private lounge for arrival and departure at Hobart airport. Champagne and a personal tour on arrival. With only 20 suites and 40 guests, the staffing can peak at 100, so the service levels are excellent. The staff all seemed know your name, be aware of your activity timetable and were clearly encouraged to chat, not just provide service, which makes you feel very welcome. The view of Freycinet National park are spectacular, whether from the main entrance, your suite or even your bed. Beautiful flowing architecture, private bushland settings and attentive staff. Great little touches like separating the air conditioning from your suite, so your room is a perfect temperature yet still silent. There is an excellent set of menus changing daily but all entirely customisable for your own preferences, combined with possibly Tasmania's best cellar rumoured to have 2000 bottles. The lunches combine interesting complex salads with a choice of hot main dishes. Activity highlights included the mineral salts bath followed by a relaxing massage and certainly the oyster experience. Visiting the oyster farm and standing out in the water at a white-clothed table, wine, cheese, condiments and having oysters literally lifted out of the sea and shucked for you to eat moments later. Amazing. There are also winery tours, a cruise, kayaking, feeding of Tasmanian Devils on site and more. Well done Saffire. 10 out of 10. We'll be back!
