New luxury lodge planned for Tasmania

A timetable has been set in place for a luxury lodge on the Tasman Peninsula in Tasmania; a sister property to ultra-luxe Saffire at Freycinet. 

Federal Group managing director Greg Farrell has announced a program for the construction and opening dates for Saffire’s first sister property, located at Port Arthur.

With a confirmed start building date of July, 2018, and opening scheduled for the summer of 2019-2020, the design and planning processes are well underway for our the 20-suite luxury spa lodge, located in one of the most famous locations in Australia.

The hotel will be located on the Port Arthur Historic Site, on the western hill, directly overlooking the entire site. Federal Group describes the hotel as "discreet, yet iconic" and says it will offer a contemplative and reflective experience.
The Port Arthur Luxury Lodge will have a very strong emphasis on local produce and food and beverage experiences, with on-site heirloom gardens, outside ovens and a completely open kitchen. 

“The success of Saffire has demonstrated demand for high-end tourism products and we believe this project will further extend this important market for Tasmania,” Farrell says.

"Federal Group has a long and proud history of establishing world-class tourism developments in Tasmania and with MACq01 [the hotel on Macquarie Wharf in Hobart] opening next year, this project represents the next step.”

The spa on the site will have custom-built treatment rooms, specialising in remedial and relaxation therapies.

The Tasman Peninsula is also the location of the recently opened Three Capes Wilderness Walk and is home to an array of nature and offshore experiences.
