New suites have debuted at The Tasman hotel, with distinctive design details that pay homage to the property’s heritage.
Those seeking a luxurious stay in Hobart may wish to check in to the new suites at The Tasman, with a design that underscores the heritage features of the hotel and its picturesque surroundings.
The Tasman, which belongs to Marriott’s Luxury Collection portfolio, comprises an original heritage building from the 1840s, an Art Deco building, and a modern Pavilion building, together showcasing three eras of distinctive design. The project was conceptualised by award-winning architects FJMT and Joseph Pang Design.
Among the new signature suites, the St. David’s Park Suite embodies the heritage character of the original building. Overlooking St. David’s Park, it has a Baltic Pine ceiling that was originally used as ballast for the first tall ships arriving in Hobart, a heritage fireplace, exposed sandstone walls, and a handcrafted Tasmanian blackwood timber bathtub.
In the two contemporary Pavilion Suites, expansive views over the waterfront to the River Derwent can be observed through floor-to-ceiling windows. A colour palette of blues and greys was chosen to complement the maritime environment, while touches such as a freestanding bath and original artworks lend a sense of sophistication.
The Aurora Presidential Suite is the hotel’s pièce de résistance, with 108 square metres of carefully curated space. Its private rooftop terrace offers panoramic views of Hobart as well as a Tasmanian handcrafted sandstone and glass Van Tuil fire pit.
The Tasman’s top suite accommodations feature refreshments from local purveyors, including Lark Distillery’s Docks Release single malt, which has been created for the hotel, an exclusive beer collaboration with Moo Brew, and Storm + India organic wellness teas.
