Arguably one of the chicest getaways in Tasmania, if not Australia, Saffire Freycinet is an elegant bay-facing property with a lovely spa, excellent dining options, direct access to a white-sand cove, and ridiculously picturesque views across rooms and common areas. The entire property, which dates back to 2010 and is refreshed every other winter, is contemporary to the core, from its gorgeous suites outfitted with modern furniture and romantic double showers to its semi-open corridors and terraces. However, despite its contemporary styling, Saffire still manages to blend in well with the area’s scenery, owing largely to architecture inspired by the hues and textures of the property's surrounds. Saffire's sleek Palate Restaurant is particularly impressive, with floor-to-high-ceiling windows and wine-paired menus featuring a rich variety of ingredients, many of which are grown on-site. The hotel also offers a number of free activities for guests, including archery lessons, countryside walks, winery tours and tastings, and even educational visits to the property's own Tasmanian devil enclosure.
