Doors are now open to Mövenpick Hotel Hobart, the Swiss-born brand making its debut near the Tasmanian capital’s prized waterfront precinct earlier this week.
The 221-room property features all the brand hallmarks, interspersed with elements of the local lifestyle including boutique interiors inspired by the Tasmanian wilderness. Designed by Jaws Architects, guest rooms feature a colour scheme reflecting the state’s natural landscapes. Rooms are located on floors 3-18, while public areas and facilities occupy the lower two levels.
Signature elements of the new Mövenpick Hotel Hobart include the daily Chocolate Hour for guests, which sees a complimentary éclair, brownie or truffle served alongside a purchased chocolate-inspired cocktail, mocktail or affogato. A range of special chocolate tasting packages are also available for guests to indulge in at the time of their choice. Mövenpick branded ice cream will also be on hand to purchase.
At the other end of the health scale, the hotel also offers a selection of energy shots blended with juice or yoghurt to help guests get their day off to an energetic start. Combined with an array of fresh fruit and vegetables, these will be available during breakfast service. Healthy options will also be available across the menu, served as table service or an express ‘Grab and Go’ takeaway.
Separately for guests and business delegates, the hotel features a flexible function space capable of hosting up to 100. A pre-event area with full bar and fitness centre will also be available for guests to utilise at their leisure.
“Mövenpick Hotel Hobart transcends the traditional hotel experience by masterfully blending the brand’s Swiss heritage with a premium hospitality experience,” said Accor Pacific CEO, Simon McGrath.
“We’re so excited to share this stunning property with guests visiting Hobart from other parts of Tasmania and Australia. Accor is planning more locations for Mövenpick across the Pacific and we believe this premium brand will quickly gain recognition for its culinary and service excellence.”
