Marriott Bonvoy’s Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts today announced the launch of The Tasman, a Luxury Collection Hotel in Hobart, which marks the first time that the brand has been introduced in Australia by The Luxury Collection. Historic Hobart, the second-oldest city in Australia, is the focus of the Tasman’s itinerary.

As a city on Tasmania’s island of Hobart, Hobart is known for its dynamic art scene, epicurean culture, and magnificent natural scenery.

The Tasman is a short walk from Salamanca Markets, St. David’s Park, and historic Sullivan’s Cove in Hobart’s historic waterfront neighborhood, which has been restored to its original splendor. The only Clefs d’Or concierge in Tasmania will lead guests on a journey to discover the works of local craftsmen and uncover the tales behind the island’s famed products with unique purveyor visits and epicurean moments within the hotel.

Tasman offers a transforming experience, relying on the tremendous history and evocative current culture and awe-inspiring natural beauties of one of the most interesting and furthest corners of the earth. ‘

The Tasman is a graceful recreation of historic state government buildings that combines Georgian, Art Deco, and Contemporary style. Australian architects Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp and Joseph Pang Architectural Consultants worked together to create The Tasman’s one-of-a-kind design approach.. The hotel incorporates both modern style and the site’s rich history, which includes structures dating back more than a century.

Guest rooms and suites at the Tasman are designed to display the property’s architectural story. In the Heritage Building, convict-hewn sandstone accents, refurbished gas fireplaces and marble bathrooms combine with contemporary workmanship and design. The St. David’s Park Suite, with its restored original fireplace and handcrafted Tasmanian blackwood wooden bath, is the crown gem of the Georgian era structure.

With a pared-back rendition of the renowned Art Deco style and Tasmanian native sassafras timber-inlaid ceiling elements, the rooms at the hotel date back to 1937. The hotel’s modern-designed rooms are housed in the beautiful Pavilion Building, which opens out over Sullivan’s Cove and the ocean beyond. Hobart’s harbor and city skyline may be seen from the Aurora Suite’s rooftop location. In addition to a large entertainment deck, the 108-square-meter apartment has an island bath.

There are three different culinary experiences at the Tasman that highlight and celebrate the greatest Tasmanian products and cuisine. When it comes to the hotel’s main restaurant, Massimo Mele’s enthusiasm for supporting local producers and high-quality food and Italian hospitality are brought together in Peppina. With a postmodern yet genuine approach, Mary Mary is an intimate artisan cocktail bar and spirit library where local ingredients are paired with Tasmania’s best spirits and liquors. Guests may have afternoon tea or a small meal in a domestic environment that extends out onto a terrace overlooking Parliament Square in the Deco Lounge.

Events at the Tasman are always memorable because of its historic location and distinctive character. The hotel’s 769 square meter conference area may be configured in seven different ways. There is a stunning outdoor patio overlooking St. David’s Park from the Cumulo Room’s floor-to-ceiling windows. Up to 400 people can attend cocktail parties or trade gatherings at Parco, a vast underground warehouse-style event venue. The hotel’s fitness center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and has cardio machines and free weights.
