MONA PavilionsArt connoisseurs will find plenty to love at this collection of eight stand-alone and individually styled luxury suites, owned and operated by Hobart’s groundbreaking Museum of Old and New Art. While decor varies greatly between the pavilions, each of which are named for a different Australian artist or architect, they generally have a contemporary vibe, with asymmetrical sloped windows and streamlined furniture (plus minibars stocked with wine from the on-site Moorilla Estate). If you’re feeling adventurous, room service will bring you the wallaby tartare from The Source, the museum’s on-site restaurant, and there’s a fitness center and infinity pool overlooking the Derwent River. But perhaps the biggest perk is the chance to go on a private tour of the museum, held for guests every Tuesday afternoon (when MONA is closed) and concluding with a tasting at the complex’s wine bar, the Cellar Door.
