Fodor's Review

Blame it on jaw-dropping views of Wineglass Bay and the Hazards Mountains that frame the resort, or the eco-friendly space-age architecture fit for the likes of James Bond—a far-flung luxe getaway doesn't get much better than this. The campus, on Tasmania's remote Freycinet Peninsula, is replete with 20 ultra-modern rooms (think Eames lounge chairs, drop-down flat-screen TVs, and black-out shades at the push of a button), a spa with treatments using sapphire and diamond dust, and a to-die-for restaurant offering Tasmanian wines and some of the best food on the island. But don't worry. It's definitely not as intimidating as it looks: casual clothes are de rigueur here for most activities, like oyster shucking and spotting local wildlife by boat. Best of all, all-inclusive packages feature gourmet tasting menus, nightly wine hours, some activities, mini spa services, and your wine-and-goodies-stocked mini-bar. Rates can be steep—and it's not the easiest place to get to—but Saffire can't be beat for romance, natural beauty, and sheer get-away-from-it-all decadence.
