Saffire: Eco Lodge

A Sybaritic Resort Set Against Tasmania’s Great Oyster Bay

New Zealand-based photographer Derek Henderson captures the distinctive architecture and natural beauty of the Saffire spa situated 125km northeast of Hobart in Tasmania's Freycinet National Park (named after the French navigator who founded the site in 1916). The exclusive idyll comprises 20 individual and freestanding suites that subtly complement the naturalistic location overlooking Great Oyster Bay, home to migrating humpback whales and dolphins. The site's organic design refers to the seascape's waves and sand dunes that are framed through abundant panoramic windows, while the buildings have been intricately fashioned from sustainable and locally sourced materials. Housed alongside a bar and relaxation area filled with Eames furniture and providing an expansive view of Coles Bay, the restaurant is similarly eco-savvy: nearby small holdings, farms and fisherman supply the fodder for head chef Hugh Whitehouse’s menu, which includes citrus-cured Tasmanian ocean trout and Cape Grim pasture-fed beef with poached celeriac cream.
