Newsletter December 2018
Season’s greetings from the spectacular east coast of Tasmania. It’s an exciting time of year as we head into another vibrant festive season and watch this incredible coastline come alive in the summer sun!
We hope to see you soon. Stay safe and happy holidays.
From all of us at Saffire Freycinet
AT ONE WITH NATURE
This Summer, we want you to feel at one with nature. Be it with our resident Tasmanian devils, the playful pods of dolphins, or opening up a fresh, sweet oyster with a local sparkling wine… our unique experiences will connect you with the stunning natural surrounds of our unique Freycinet Peninsula.
We are thrilled to announce Saffire Freycinet has recently won three state awards:
Best Luxury Accommodation at the Tasmanian Tourism Awards in November, and Best Deluxe Hotel Accommodation and Regional Accommodation Venue of the Year at the Tasmanian Hospitality Association Awards for Excellence in August. We’re excited to be among quite a number of local businesses representing Tasmania at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards on 1st March in Launceston, Tasmania… wish us luck!
Saffire has also just been named in the Top 20 Resorts in Australia and the South Pacific by the Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards. We’re so proud and humbled by the accomplishments of our team. The ongoing recognition from the local and international travel industry is a welcome reflection of our commitment to excellence.
At Saffire, we continually strive to provide our guests with an unforgettable connection to Tasmania. That’s why we’ve spent the winter months designing a brand new, deeply immersive paddock-to-plate experience, right here on the fringe of Freycinet National Park.
We can’t say any more just yet, but we’re expecting widespread buzz about this sweet new offering… oh no, we’ve already said too much!
Watch this space… launching in January.
