Tasmania’s Freycinet Peninsula, home to striking pink granite monoliths called the Hazards as well as Mount Graham and Mount Freycinet, is the inspiration for the secluded 20-suite Saffire Freycinet. Tasmanian architects Circa Morris Nunn crafted a clean-lined lodge around flowing, organic buildings that reference the area’s sand dunes and waves. A stingray-shaped roof fashioned from curved wood beams and built in a ribbed structure is particularly eye-catching. The interiors by Hong Kong–based firm Chhada Siembieda are washed in a palette of soft gray, taupe, green, blue, and orange. Handwoven rugs pay homage to the woodsy landscape and are complemented by rugged materials such as timber and leather, while Eames furniture adds a contemporary touch. Looking to splurge? The private pavilions, with their plunge pools, secluded courtyards, and private chefs, are the property’s trump card. The hotel’s location on a primeval island is it’s biggest asset—just head to the restaurant, where chef Hugh Whitehouse of the acclaimed Darley at Lilianfels in the Blue Mountains turns out a menu stocked with farm-fresh ingredients sourced from a world-class oyster farm and Wineglass Bay nearby.
