Tasmania has quickly become the most desirable destination in Australia and once you have stepped foot on this island you will soon see why. Some of the best luxury hotels in Tasmania have been recognised internationally for their unique locations, promotion of sustainability and eco tourism, all the while being some of the most luxurious stays you can encounter the world over. Here are our picks for the best luxury hotels in Tasmania.
Private and serene, Pumphouse Point first came on the Tassie tourism scene back in 2017 and has since been booked out for weeks and often months in advance. The most recent addition to the project was the introduction of “The Retreat”, a private oasis that overlooks the main Pumphouse on the edge of the jetty. There are 19 rooms in total.

A private oasis tucked neatly away on a farm in Tasmania’s East Coast, Thalia has become an instagram sensation as visitors flock to the beautiful outdoor bath for that perfect sunset sundowner.
Recently named the world’s best boutique luxury hotel, Saffire on the East Coast of Tasmania is as luxurious as it gets. The Saffire experience includes your room, mini-bar, three meals daily and house wines. The boutique hotel overlooks The Hazards, a mountain range in Freycinet National Park that light up in orange hues at sunset.
Located in the rugged West of Tasmania, Captain’s Rest is a historically listed waterfront home in Lettes Bay Village, a short drive outside of Strahan. The home is the creation of an interior design stylist who has a passion for maintaining the heritage of the property by decking it out with trinkets and treasures from Australia and her travels.
Islington Hotel, Hobart
If there’s just one hotel to stay in Hobart it is the Islington. This property feels like a home away from home, especially in the winter time with wood on the fire and a welcoming team that treat each guest like family.
This small island off the south east coast of Tasmania is commonly regarded as the standard in luxury Tasmanian experience, given its privacy from the mainland and understated luxury appeal.
If a farm stay sounds more like your style, you can’t miss the opportunity to stay at Quamby Estate. Just 30 minutes drive from Launceston, this is one of the most popular wedding venues in Tasmania. The grounds are idyllic and inspiring, offering complete serenity in the mornings and evenings.
Chances are if you’ve researched your Tasmanian getaway you have heard of MONA once or twice. Tasmania’s famous Modern Art Museum has put the island on the map. Looking for somewhere unique to rest your head? One of the newer additions to the museum is the Mona Pavilion, a small collection of hotel rooms on the fridge of Hobart.
Rocky Hills Bush Retreat
If privacy and seclusion is what you are looking for in the rugged coastline of Tasmania’s east coast, look no more. A short drive from the beach in the rocky hills you will find the aptly named Rocky Hills Bush Retreat. This artsy open-plan home has just one bed, an outdoor bath tub, and floor to ceiling views of the Tasmanian wilderness.
