RoomCritic Hotel Crush | Saffire Freycinet, Tasmania. When a hotel becomes the destination.

Saffire Freycinet, Tasmania. When a hotel becomes the destination.

For the most part hotels have a very rational purpose: A place to sleep when we’re away from our own home. Of course there are different levels to this function depending on the comfort and aesthetic you wish to experience. However, there is another type of hotel, one that exists in a much more emotional place. One where the hotel is the experience as well as the destination. Saffire Freycinet is one of those places.

Saffire is an ultra premium, boutique lodge on the Freycinet Peninsula on the east coast of Tasmania – Australia, overlooking the wide expanses of Great Oyster Bay. A truly stunning part of Australia, equally as secluded as the red desert interior.

The dominant view from Saffire’s every window is the pink-hued granite of the peninsula’s Hazards Mountains, providing a spectacular and ever-changing backdrop from morning to nightfall.

The 20 suites, are available in 3 types. Stunning, incredible and phenomenal with prices starting at A$1500 per night.

If we ever get to stay at Saffire Freycinet, be assured we’ll let you know all about it.
