Three new accommodation categories have been introduced to the range at Tasmania’s Freycinet Lodge in the first phase reveal of a comprehensive renewal project underway at the property.
Designed to draw new demographics to visit the lodge, Freycinet has launched new Coastal Pavilions, Mountain Terrace rooms and the Lodge King Suite, accessible for the mobility-challenged. The new Coastal Pavilions are corner-less, feature large windows and have been built using natural timbers.
Six new Mountain Terrace rooms offer double-height glass walls and are positioned in the bushland overlooking the Hazards Mountain Range. They offer king beds, a leather lounge and outdoor bathtub, all around a colour scheme designed to suit the forest landscape.
Public facilities at Freycinet Lodge have also been upgraded, with the lobby lounge, bar and dining area all receiving a makeover while maintaining the view over Great Oyster Bay. Further, an elevator has been installed to help mobility-challenged guests and visitors to access both levels.
The design and development team consisted of Project Manager Brett Torossi, architects Liminal Studio and Cordwell Lane as builders. The new Coastal Pavilions were constructed in segments off-site and then transported to their Freycinet locations to be assembled so as to minimise any damage to the environment through transportation or construction.
According to owners, the Royal Automobile Club of Tasmania, the new categories have been created as a means of immersing guests in nature while still being able to enjoy luxury accommodation and the best food and wine the state has to offer.
Freycinet Lodge is located inside the Freycinet National Park, near Coles Bay on Tasmania’s eastern coastline.
