It's no secret that after the last few months of chaos, we're all in desperate need of a well-deserved holiday. While many of us will be travelling to finally see loved ones, and others, to escape the confines of their home state; there's nothing like the knowledge that a fresh, brand-new hotel awaits you on the other side of your flight. Coinciding perfectly with the opening of the Tasmanian borders to fully-vaccinated travellers on December 15; a new luxury hotel, The Tasman, located in Hobart will also be welcoming guests with open arms.
The new hotel, which is part of the Luxury Collection Hotel group has announced its official opening; preparing to invite its first guest from December 1, 2021. As we have come to expect from the hotel group's rich and expansive offering of locations, The Tasman will bring the unique local character of Hobart to life through authentic experiences that connect its pioneering past with an unexpected contemporary culture, surrounded by Tasmania’s captivating scenery.
Speaking to and preserving the heritage of its surrounds; The Tasman connects Salamanca Place with an elegant fronting on Murray Street in Hobart’s Parliament Square. The result is a captivating, electric facade that simply can't be missed. Just steps away from the famous Salamanca Markets, St David’s Park and the vibrant waterfront of Sullivan’s Cove; The Tasman is the new beating heart of accomodation in Hobart.
But it's not just what's on the outside that counts. Internally, the hotel boasts 152 unique rooms each with their own unique charm and character. No two rooms are the same; each featuring original artworks from local artists, warming fireplaces and island baths are some of the highlight features within.
“We look forward to welcoming our first guests to explore the captivating character of the hotel, designed to be the perfect base for experiencing the epicurean highlights of Hobart as well as the wilderness of the island beyond. Whether travelling from near or afar, we want to create a quintessentially Tasmanian experience as much for visitors as for the locals who help make The Tasman the unique destination it is," shared Stephen Morahan, general manager at The Tasman.
A city that boasts such a rich food culture, it comes as no surprise that The Tasman expertly reflects the authentic and exciting local dining culture through its selection of bars and signature restaurant. Peppina is a celebration of old-world hospitality and produce-focused cooking led by renowned Tasmanian chef, Massimo Mele who gives Italian inspired cuisine a local Tasmanian twist. And if you're looking to enjoy a drink or two; Mary Mary is an intimate and sophisticated bar by cocktail extraordinaries Charlie Ainsbury of Proof & Company, set to provide an old-world drinking experience reimagined for modern times.
The Tasman Hobart is open for reservations currently from January 4, 2022; with additional bookings for December dates set to become available closer to the official December 2021 opening.
