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.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves.

Review:   We recently had the privilege of returning for another stay at Saffire... and WOW! This place is incredible!!! Apart from the stunning architecture, interior spaces, scenery, food, wine and activities, the staff are so thoughtful and sensitive to every guest, giving so much of themselves, that it really makes the whole experience even more special. For anyone with the means to stay here, it really is such a unique and premium showcase of Tasmania on every level - the Saffire experience is not to be missed!

Review:   This is one of the most luxurious properties I've been to. The attention to detail of the staff is second to none. It's a small boutique resort and the staff outnumbered the guests 2:1 so the service was impecable. The views from every room are the same and gorgeous. The kitchen staff prepared spectacular meals and we really enjoyed everything. You really must stay here if you're visiting the Freycinet National Park.
