“Amazing”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

As most of the other reviews reflect, this place is impossible to fault. We only had a quick weekend away but was enough to see what a wonderful place this is.

The staff are outstanding, very personal, friendly and just really nice people.

The food is of the standard at ARIA except more accommodating. Everything is included and you can pretty much order what ever you feel like.

The surroundings are beautiful. Plenty of things to do- but we just stayed in the pavilion and chilled out with the beautiful view as the backdrop.

Defiantly one of the top hotels in Oz and I would say one of the best in the world.

Room Tip: We stayed in signature suite which was very good. They all have the same view, I think they would al...

Having just spent 2 amazing days an nights at this amazing boutique hotel, I can say if you do get the chance to stay here if only for a night ,you will never forget your experience. If you can afford 2 or more nights you will discover even more delights.
A fully inclusive hotel that includes all your meals,alcohol, things to do, had a great boat trip around Schouten island with many more items included. We had the middle sized suite and all I can say about it is simply spectacular, wow what a room with absolutely amazing views of the hazards. Yes I know this is a very expensive hotel,but worth every dollar.

The restaurant and the lounge what a spot to either enjoy a spectacular meal or a afternoon snack sitting in the luxurious lounges just enjoying the views. We were treated like royalty well that's how it felt to us.

Now I must comment on the staff and the service I can't give them 5 stars it is not enough,they deserve 10 stars. From our greeting as we got out of our car to the final farewell when we left the hotel and got back into our car, the staff were simply the best, whatever department they worked in from the gardeners thru housekeeping thru to all the service staff throughout the hotel, you are simply the best.

Great fully inclusive mini bar as well.


10 star boutique hotel.

Well Saffire can.

This was my second visit and if you rad the previous review you'll note I was pretty darn happy.

This time……

I don't know where to start. Room type doesn't matter, you are all equal and that equals perfection. Dietary requirements…. not an issue… share table… a special dish for you.

Experiences (no they are not tours) The guide suits your needs and thanks to Daisy my confidence to walk again grew so I ended up doing more challenging walks at Cradle Mountain than i may have before Saffire. Ashleigh's mixology is about to cost me a lot of $$ to stock the bar (but his awesome sense of humour is another gem…. he also assembles an wonderful pineapple and wagyu skewer ;)

Food….. Hugh oversees a knock your socks off kitchen and those oysters… Zane and Kelly's cooking lessons

the question is not will i return it is how soon can i get back

There are some events in your life that require a celebration. That you recognise the importance by doing something out of the ordinary. My wife and my visit to Saffire was such a celebration. When we parked at the entrance a staff member was already waiting for us. She knew our name, our car was whisked away with our luggage and we accompanied are hostess into the stunning main building for sparkling wine welcome. The building sat extremely well in the landscape allowing us magnificent views of Muirs Beach and the Hazards. After our welcome we accompanied our host to our villa.
Our luggage was already there. Our villa was spacious with extensive use of Tasmanian Timbers and hand crafted Tasmanian furnishings which whilst being things of beauty were blissfully comfortable and warm. From the seats to the lounges to the bed comfort and beautiful design went hand in hand.
It was lovely to just immerse yourselves in this " cocoon".
So much did we enjoy our room that we cancelled the organised wine tour and spent the afternoon sitting on the private deck enjoying the changing moods of the hazards and the extensive complimentary mini bar.
Not withstanding to buildings and the environment I think the biggest asset of Saffire are the staff. They are most professional across the board and have that innate ability to know when to engage in detailed conversation or just pass.
The meals were simply outstanding and where ever possible reflected local produce and wine in a world class way.
We didn't want to leave and nobody seemed in a rush to get you out so we sat in the main building and just chilled (as my son says)
When leaving our car was already at the front entrance with a little complimentary travelling pack. Which was a lovely touch.
I think without a doubt that it was the best hotel experience that I have ever had and we will be back.

We are not unfamiliar with luxury accommodation yet were still absolutely astounded with Saffire. It is pricey and we had wondered if we would feel it did not meet the price. In no way did it not absolutely exceed all expectations. The staff were superb. All of them. There was no task that was someone else's domain, they all worked seamlessly and effortlessly to ensure our stay was perfect. They offered advice, were completely flexible with our plans and could not have done more.
The food-sublime, truly. The chef deserves special mention here, every meal was unbelievable. We ate like royalty. Only down side now after 4 nights we must hike 10 miles per day to work it off!
I would say if you can stay at least 2 nights so you don't feel rushed to do everything and get to relax.

Room Tip: There are only 20 and I don't think you could go wrong, we chose the superior room and were amaz...

Saffire Freycinet Resort in Coles Bay Tasmania is an experience that can only be experienced and not described. The amazing staff headed by Justin transports you to another level in service and comfort. Starting from their huge, well stocked and comfortable lounge at Hobart’s airport to the personalised greeting on arrival at the resort you know this is going to be different to anything you have experienced before.
Saffire does nothing in half measures from the quality of their food & wine to the level of friendliness of their staff, to the ambience of the whole complex, to the hot water bottle at the end of your bed when you return after a magnificent meal at night. Even when it was time to leave Justin escorted us out to our car to farewell us, a personal touch I have never received before from a General Manager. As we drove off my wife & I felt like they had mistaken us for celebrities but in reality very guest is a very important person.
Thank you Justin and your staff for an experience I will treasure forever.

From the minute you drive up to the entrance you know it is going to be special.
We were met at the front by someone who already knew our name, we left our car went to reception then taken to our room and our bags were already there.
From there on everything was outstanding - the setting is perfect, surroundings like a painted backdrop, the rooms were amazing.
The food is all local produce prepared to make it shine.
The unlimited number of activities and options from walking on the beach to flying over the bay and the mountains, from a nature walk to an oyster farm and so much more made it a fantastic few days.
Treat yourself for a very special occasion or just because you want something special.
