If you’re seeking a lush getaway to the Apple Isle, you’ll be pleased to know we’ve compiled a list of five outrageously decadent things to do in our underrated island state.
Relax in the World’s Most Scenic Bathtub
Because who wouldn’t want to bathe against the backdrop of the Great Oyster Bay? Thalia Haven, which is available on Airbnb, is set on a private 130-acre wooded peninsula with five kilometres of secluded coastline. It’s really all about going off the grid here – there’s no Wifi, no television and definitely no Facebook.
Stay at the world's best boutique hotel
The WOW factor starts from the second you walk into the lobby of Sapphire Freycinet – the panoramic view of the bay and mountains will take your breath away.
Opened in 2010, this 20-room uber-luxe resort has been dubbed the best of the best. While rooms don’t come cheap ($1750 per night), they do include all meals (including a six-course degustation dinner with matched wines) AND an all-inclusive free mini-bar (just don’t pack items into your suitcase).
Bruny Island Traveller
If you consider yourself a bit of a foodie, the Bruny Island Traveller is the ultimate tasting tour, where visitors spend the day exploring the beautiful scenery and gourmet produce made on Bruny Island. Over six delicious courses, you’ll meet cheese makers, oyster farmers, fudge makers, berry farmers, viticulturists and whisky distillers to hear the stories behind the harvest.
Spa in the wilderness
For the ultimate pampering sesh, the Waldheim Alpine Spa (located in Cradle Mountain Lodge) overlooks the rugged mountains and ancient forests of the Tasmania Wilderness. Ease away the aches of a long day’s bushwalking with a range of signature massages, body wraps, scrubs, facials and a "muscle- melting" bath. There are six treatment rooms and a spa sanctuary, which can be reserved for private use featuring sauna, steam room, relaxation beds, hydrotherapy pool and cold plunge pool.
