This December, Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, will witness the launch of The Tasman, a Luxury Collection Hotel. The new luxury hotel is steps from the scenic waterfront and strategically located close to all that downtown has to offer. The Tasman offers three distinct dining concepts and 152 rooms & suites available for guests who want nothing but luxurious accommodations during their stay.
The Tasman, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Hobart
The Tasman is the first Luxury Collection Hotel by Marriott International, Inc. in Australia. Part of a global network of nearly 120 unique hotels, each hotel & resort under the brand is authentic to its location. They have been designed with the experiences that make every destination distinctive in mind.
Bringing together the essence of Tasmania within an urban experience, guests are treated to Tasmania’s art, cuisine and culture with every aspect of The Tasman’s design infused with Tasmania.
Tasmania’s newest luxury hotel has been anticipated for many years, with Tasmania joining in on Australia’s booming tourism industry and showcasing its stunning wilderness landscapes. Tasmania hopes that this luxury hotel will entice more international travellers to Tasmania, especially the regional countries in South East Asia, given Australia’s recent border relaxations allowing quarantine free entry to leisure travellers.
The Tasman’s Connections
Once guests have experienced The Tasman’s distinctive leisure and business facilities, they may find that exploring the surrounding areas is a must. The Tasman is located in Tasmania’s capital city, Hobart, and is situated near all the attractions worth seeing and experiencing.
The Tasman’s central location is ideal for guests who wish to explore downtown Hobart. It’s within walking distance of Salamanca Place, the waterfront Sullivan’s Cove, the iconic Battery Point with its heritage cottages, Princes Wharf where you can find all manner of watercraft like hovercrafts and ferries, not to mention dozens of fishing boats and the famous open-air Salamanca Market.
The essence of The Tasman intuitively connects the city’s pioneering past, contemporary culture, and captivating scenery with epicurean highlights.
The Tasman covers three eras of design within the 152-room hotel: from walking the history-filled hallways of the original 1840s heritage building, admiring the understated luxury of the Art Deco building, or taking in the spectacular views of the Hobart waterfront from the new glass ensconced Pavilion building.
The hotel’s signature restaurant ‘Peppina’ will be headed by Chef Massimo Mele. He is a renowned Tasmanian chef and has an extensive knowledge about local produce that he plans on combining with the generosity of Italian hospitality to ensure all guests feel welcome in his culinary creations.
Exploring Tasmania from Hobart

Tasmania offers a diversity of activities and attractions that you can enjoy during your stay at The Tasman.
