Lakes & Mountains
Saffire Freycinet takes inspiration in its design and architecture from the surrounding peninsula, including the pink granite of the Hazard Mountains. Sitting on Tasmania's east coast, in the village of Coles Bay, views from the hotel look out to the crystal-clear waters of Oyster Bay. There are plenty of short walks to take across Freycinet National Park, but for those looking to capture a photograph or two, the trek to Wineglass Bay's lookout point is well worth the journey.
This property's secluded location provides the ideal setting for couples to relax away from the rush of the outside world. Couples looking for a new experience can head out on a complimentary excursion to the Freycinet Marine Oyster Farm, where you can develop an understanding for marine ecology and taste prized Pacific oysters, all whilst surrounded by a beautifully picturesque setting. Those who prefer to stay dry can visit the local Freycinet Winery, where you'll learn the art of winemaking and sip Tasmania's finest wines alongside your partner.
While staying at Saffire, request one of the hotel's exclusive oyster excursions to Freycinet Marine Farm. Here, you will wade out, knee-deep, to the beds of the Pacific Oysters and observe how the shellfish are harvested. A unique experience will be trying a fresh oyster straight from the sea. Other excursions include a guided Saffire boat cruise to Schouten Island, where you're likely to spot sea lions, penguins and dolphins. Mountain-biking, kayaking and orienteering can all be organised, on request.
Spa & Wellness
A spa experience at Saffire is like no other, mainly due to the boutique's collection of exclusive gem-based treatments. Bespoke sessions can be tailored around 'The Jewel Collection', a deluxe selection of facials that incorporate elements of sapphire, silver and gold. There is an anti-ageing treatment using pure diamond dust and treatments combining particles of gold with plant stem cells. Alternatively, opt for the 'Sapphire Ritual', a unique combination of warm oils, light therapy, massage and sapphire minerals, to help boost skin luminosity. The spa philosophy is to increase energy, promote renewal, rejuvenate, transform and relax, so there is a treatment to suit every requirement.
Saffire Freycinet is surrounded by plenty of small bays that provide small, idyllic beaches along the coastline. In front of the hotel is Muirs Beach, which is home to the hotel's beach activities, including volleyball, beach cricket and ultimate Frisbee. Wineglass Bay offers a more photogenic beach, as white sands meet the turquoise sea along a curving coastline, making it a popular spot for anyone visiting the area to discover.
