Saffire Freycinet

Saffire Freycinet is a boutique coastal sanctuary dedicated to creating moments of wonder and changing the way you perceive time out. This goal is achieved with quality service focused on memorable experiences; breathtaking views across Great Oyster Bay, Hazards Mountains and white-sand beaches from every room and accommodation suites designed by Chhada Siembieda that seamlessly combine outside beauty with comforts for an unforgettable stay.

There are only 20 suites, and each features a spacious bathroom with heated floors, open plan bedroom and living area, mesmerising views out every window, and soft grey, blue and green hues inspired by Freycinet’s striking natural landscape. The resort’s interior design echoes this theme.

Saffire Freycinet lies along Tasmania’s unspoiled east coast and is encased by Hazards Mountains and Great Oyster Bay. A two-hour drive from Hobart, it offers an unforgettable experience that blends sophistication with inspiration. Enjoy succulent seafood plucked straight from the sea as you indulge in custom spa treatments from talented therapists; plus take part in complimentary experiences such as meeting rare Tasmanian devils or donning an apiarist suit and visiting beehives with local beekeepers!

Saffire Freycinet may have higher costs than many honeymooners can afford, but it remains an unforgettable honeymoon destination that makes the journey worthwhile. To save money while visiting, those wishing to travel between October and November should book their trip during low season – prices tend to be less costly during these months.

Southern Ocean Lodge

Spicers Sangoma offers couples the chance to reconnect with nature on an all-inclusive resort vacation. Bask in Queensland’s magnificent wilderness from your private balcony while being transformed by therapeutic massage or balancing yoga sessions; then finish it all off with delectable cuisine from Spicers’ Sangoma restaurant!

The suites at the resort are an embodiment of modern luxury with custom furnishings and artworks designed to showcase its natural beauty. Sandblasted limestone floors, recycled spotted gum feature walls, organic and contemporary design elements combine for the ultimate romantic and relaxing atmosphere. There are 21 luxurious suites cantilevering along the coast and offering breath-taking ocean views; signature design elements include sunken lounges, plush beds and glass-walled bathrooms that combine wilderness setting with creature comforts for an unparalleled experience.

Southern Ocean Lodge quickly rose to become an icon of Australia’s Kangaroo Island after opening in 2008, earning rave reviews from global publications like Conde Nast. Unfortunately, however, due to 2019 Australian bushfires it is currently closed; Baillie Lodges has announced it plans on reopening it as soon as 2023.

Kangaroo Island will offer guests a complete experience that showcases its abundant wildlife and stunning natural landscapes, including daily tours. A custom itinerary will be developed each day and included as part of the rate to ensure guests encounter diverse flora, fauna and marine life – plus learn about its cultural history.
