3 April 2014: Saffire Freycinet has been named the top accommodation in the country in Australian Traveller Magazine’s ‘100 Greatest Holidays of all Time,’ coming in at number five on the coveted list.
In addition, the road trip through the East Coast of Tasmania of which Saffire is situated, has come in at second place demonstrating the desirability of the region.
This placement adds to a host of accolades in the last year for Saffire, including the Best Luxe Hotel at the Australian Traveller Reader’s Choice Awards, Australasia’s Best Boutique Hotel at the Boutique Hotel Awards and being named a 2014 award winner in Andrew Harper’s January 2014 Hideaway Report.
The ‘100 Greatest Holidays of all Time’ list is the result of more than 12,000 nominations and a panel of twenty travel experts.
Saffire Freycinet’s concept and design are like no other in the country, capturing the essence of the East Coast of Tasmania by connecting with its environment, to bring an authentic and enriching experience for its guests.
Australian Traveller Editor Georgia Rickard says, “As a nation, we’re becoming much more discerning about what we want from our holidays. It’s not enough to plonk yourself by a pool anymore – we want authentic experiences, unique destinations and trips that enrich our lives in some way.”
Saffire General Manager Justin King says, “We couldn’t be happier to be the top accommodation in the country on Australian Traveller’s ‘Greatest 100 Holidays’ list. Saffire Freycinet encompasses so many elements that make it one of the greatest Australian holidays of all time, including its location in amidst the East Coast of Tasmania road trip, our world-class dining, personalised service and luxurious experiences on offer.”
