With a gourmet local food scene, wild coastline and picturesque hiking trails, Tasmania is one of the most spectacular winter holiday destinations. Accommodation-wise, you will find everything from rustic beach shacks and glamping tents to luxury guest houses and 5-star wilderness retreats. To narrow down the choices, we’ve put together a list of the best luxury accommodation in Tasmania for your next stay.

Pumphouse Point

Nestled between a glacial lake and century-old myrtle forest, Pumphouse Point is a luxury adults-only retreat. Housed in a converted Hydro-Electric station, the heritage hotel contains 18 comfortable suits, cosy communal lounges, honesty bars and wood fire places. The all-inclusive accommodation packages include three daily meals, as well as complimentary e-bikes, rowboats and some drinks. Dinners are served at farmhouse style shared tables in the Shorehouse dining room, with dishes made with fresh local produce, wines and Tasmanian craft beers, ciders and spirits.

Prices range from A$560 to A$910, depending on your choice of room.

Thalia Haven

Known for its highly instagrammable outdoor bath, Thalia Haven is located on a private 130-acre wooded peninsula in Tasmania’s wild Great Oyster Bay. Named after the Greek goddess of love, the stone guesthouse is reminiscent of buildings found in the Mediterranean. With an olive-tree filled courtyard, the home features four bedrooms, a farmhouse kitchen with a full stocked pantry, open fireplaces and an ocean-facing deck. Offering the ultimate secluded retreat, Thalia Haven is over two kilometres from the nearest road or neighbour and contains five kilometres of quiet coastline.

Saffire Freycinet

Located on Tasmania’s wild east coast, Saffire Freycinet offers five-star lodge accommodation beside the Freycinet National Park. In 2019, Saffire Freycinet was the winner of Tripadvisor’s Traveller’s Choice Luxury Hotels in Australia awards, for it’s intimate, all-inclusive stay. A stay at Saffire Freycinet includes three daily meals, lounge beverages and a selection of complementary experiences.

Satellite Island

Satellite Island is located in the D’Entrecasteaux Channel on the Southern coast of Tasmania.

The entire 34-hectare island, boasting a luxury summer house, boathouse and glamping tent is available for private stays. Once you’re there, you have the island’s rugged wilderness to yourself. With a fully-stocked pantry and a never-ending supply of wild Tasmanian oysters, you won’t want to leave any time soon.

Rates start at A$1,950 per night for two guests, with each additional guest paying A$300 per night.

Mona Pavilions

Connected to Hobart’s MONA Museum of Old and New Art, Mona Pavilions offer contemporary, luxury dens on the River Derwent. Only 15 minutes from Hobart’s city centre, the hotel is located on a private riverside peninsula and features a heated lap pool, on-site micro-brewery, winery, sauna and fitness centre.
