TASMANIA’S Freycinet Peninsula is already the place to find some of the state’s most excellent accommodation options with the choice growing more extensive after a cluster of new dwellings was unveiled on March 15.
Freycinet Lodge is home to new Coastal Pavilions with nine environmentally-friendly suites hidden in the bush beside Great Oyster Bay.
Each pavilion was constructed away from the site, with components transported into the national park and “custom fitted to the landscape”, and while some boast panoramic vistas of the water others are enclosed by bush to provide glimpses of the deep blue.
“The use of curved glass and Tasmanian timber add to the immersive experience (while) outdoor baths on the deck and separate lounge spaces, both taking in the view, will enhance the guest experience,” the property’s media release explains.
“The work of local artists, commissioned especially for this project and inspired by the nature of the peninsula, are featured on the walls of the bedroom and lounge and locally-made furnishings have been created to reflect the natural elements.
“The baths are embedded outside on the deck, overlooking the natural surrounds, making the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the mountains and beaches and the cleverly designed showers also take in the view while maintaining guest privacy.”
Guests staying in the Coastal Pavilions will enjoy the services of Freycinet Lodge with extras like breakfast hampers and dinner platters packed with Tasmanian produce delivered to the hidden abodes.
