Saffire Lodge located on Tasmania’s Freycinet Peninsula offers a care-free stay with opulent accommodations while encouraging a connection with nature.
With just 20 suites on site — deluxe, luxury, and premium — Saffire maintains a boutique feel in size and dedication to the well-being of its guests. All suites feature a mixture of contemporary lines alongside furnishings constructed of locally sourced timber and mid-century pieces. The sleek, minimalist design of these ulta-private suites is the perfect complement to the unique environment of the coastline that lies just outside its doors.
The suites feature luxurious amenities including king size beds with 1,000 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, Wi-Fi Internet access, flat screen LCD TVs and DVD players, and mini-bars stocked with wine, beer, and fresh Tasmanian produce. Guests can feel free to listen to their favorite music on the iPod docking system in either the spacious living room, bedroom area, or in the open air of the suite’s courtyard and deck complete with comfortable seating to look out onto views of Great Oyster Bay and Hazards Mountains.
The dining options at Saffire gives guests an opportunity to immerse themselves in the island’s own food and wine, with much of it coming directly from the surrounding areas, including crayfish, scallops, deep sea fish, mussels, oysters, grass-fed beef and lamb, and herbs and spices. With some of the cleanest air and water anywhere in the world, farmers and fishermen have been drawn to Tasmania’s East Coast to produce a bounty of delights from land and sea and delivery it daily to Saffire. The lodge’s own Palate restaurant gives diners a one-of-a-kind experience tailor made to suit everyone’s needs, and pairs the regional cuisine with one of its locally produced wines like pinot noir or chardonnay.
With the focus of Saffire to be a sanctuary to its visitors, they offer numerous spa treatments that will leave the body and mind renewed and refreshed. Using natural elements like clay, volcanic black magma, and bamboo, and healing gemstones like diamonds and sapphires, each service is meant to restore balance and leave guests glowing from the inside out.
For a little adventure, Saffire lets guests explore Tasmania’s exotic East Coast with a range of activities, whether they want to be taken around the bush by a guide, go off on their own mountain biking or kayaking journey, or simply relax under the stars in a swaying hammock. To see all that Freycinet National Park has to offer, guests can arrange for a one-hour to full-day excursion riding quad bikes on the beach, cruising to a secluded beach and sipping wine, or coming face to face with the coast’s diverse wildlife. Regardless of the level of adventure seeked, guests will find excitement and leisure in any activity they choose.
Saffire Freycinet lodge is a place to escape the stresses of every day life, get back to nature, and revive the spirit in a luxuriously peaceful setting. Tasmania is a land like no other and Saffire aims to instill its inherent tranquility and refreshing exuberance into its guests while they retreat in style.
