The Tasman to open this year marking debut of Marriott’s Luxury Collection in Australia

The upcoming opening of The Tasman in Hobart will mark the Australian debut of Marriott’s upscale Luxury Collection brand.

“The Luxury Collection offers a gateway to the world’s most exciting and desirable destinations, so it is wonderful to introduce the brand to Australia and put the rest of the world on notice to the charms of Hobart and our most Southern State,” said Sean Hunt, Marriott International’s local head.

“The opening of The Tasman signifies the importance of Tasmania as a global destination for luxury travellers and we are confident visitors will see this as a wish list experience for interstate and international travellers (once international travel resumes).”

The Tasman offers a distinct architectural experience that blends the site’s historical legacy with a striking modern vision. Guests have a rare opportunity to experience three eras of design within the 152-room hotel from the original 1840s heritage building through to the Art Deco building or the new glass ensconced Pavilion building.

Renowned Tasmanian chef Massimo Mele will act as culinary director at the hotel’s signature restaurant, while a cocktail bar hidden within the original sandstone building will offer an old-world bar experience.
