Saffire Resort Planned For Tasmania
A new resort called the "jewel of Tasmania" has been given the appropriate name of Saffire. Saffire is located on the Freycinet Peninsula which in addition to being a spot of great scenic beauty, just happens to have one of the only deposits of natural sapphires in Tasmania. This five-star retreat will have six luxury suites, 10 deluxe suites and four premium suites with rates s ranging from AUD $1,000 to AUD $3,000 per suite, per night. Suites will have ocean views, private decks, lounge areas and the latest electronics. The premium suites will have plunge pools. The resort will also have a day spa, gym, guest lounge and meeting facilities and will showcase local produce and exceptional wines in the fine dining restaurant. The resort is poised for a December 2009 opening.
