8 Romantic Hotels in Tasmania

Moss Hotel

Tasmania is immensely popular with romantic couples and honeymooners from within Australia and further afield. And with good reason, too: this spectacular island brims with natural beauty, fabulous food and a thriving cultural scene. Aim to combine some time in artsy Hobart, a gorgeous port city known for its cultural scene, buzzy markets and gorgeous converted warehouse hotels, with a more restful rural break. Some of the most romantic hotels in Tasmania are restored country houses with landscaped gardens and elegant interiors. Fans of more modern design will find some exceptional contemporary lodges on our list, too, with minimalist interiors, one-of-a-kind furnishings and enormous windows framing dazzling views. The best of Tasmania awaits!

For an Urban Bolthole

Henry Jones Art Hotel

  • Henry Jones Art Hotel has been transformed from an 1820s jam factory and warehouse to a striking waterfront art hotel — reputedly the very first of its kind in Australia. Romantic art aficionados will appreciate the collection of pieces by Tasmanian artists in guest rooms and shared areas, which also feature exposed stone and wooden beams. Begin your evenings in Hobart with cocktails for two in the hip speakeasy bar.
  • Moss Hotel, another warehouse conversion in Hobart, has a more moody, glamorous feel. Think exposed bricks or stone walls, glittering moss-coloured Italian tiles and cosy beds with polished wooden headboards, clean lines and soft green touches. There's no restaurant, but buzzy Salamanca Square is on your doorstep.

For a Country House

Villa Howden

  • Villa Howden, set upon the shores of idyllic North West Bay, has a wonderfully romantic European feel, with blue-painted shutters, arched windows and tall cypress trees. The ten bedrooms have pretty floral textiles and views of the leafy gardens and water beyond. Spend your days sailing and walking before feasting on top-notch Tasmanian fare each evening. Beautiful and very peaceful.
  • Quamby Estate offers ten elegant guest rooms — some with spa baths — in a classic 1820s homestead. Just 20 minutes from Launceston, this restful country house hotel sits within 150 acres of grounds, which include a nine-hole golf course and tennis courts. Brilliant for romantic getaways or intimate weddings.

For Foodies

Stillwater Seven© Cumulus Studio - Stillwater

  • Stillwater Seven is housed in a restored 1830s flour mill in Launceston. The seven glamorous suites are painted in moody greys, with green and rose accents, wonky wooden beams and river views. The big draw is Chef Craig Will's exceptional restaurant, where seven-course tasting menus of Tasmanian delights will thrill keen foodies. Elegant and romantic, with the wine tastings of the Tamar Valley on your doorstep.
  • The Islington Hotel, another foodie favourite, sits in hilly South Hobart. A converted Regency townhouse with a striking stone and glass extension, this boutique bolthole offers impressive views over Mount Wellington, as well as an extensive collection of art and antiques gathered by the owners during decades of travelling. Chef Anthony Illingworth's innovative cuisine showcases Tasmania's exceptional flavours, paired beautifully with regional wines. An adult-only haven.

For a Remote Retreat

Kittawa Lodge

  • Kittawa Lodge is amongst the most exquisite escapes in Australia. Hidden amid 96 acres of land on remote King Island, the lodge boasts just two one-bedroom hideaways, each offering uninterrupted views of windswept coastal dunes from minimalist designer bedrooms, sitting rooms with crackling wood-burning stoves, and huge sink-into bathtubs. Superb seasonal produce completes the picture at this sensational off-grid retreat.
  • Rocky Hills Retreat invites couples to reconnect with nature on Tasmania's stunning east coast. A design-led one-bedroom lodge tucked within 250 acres of native bushland, this striking contemporary escape has floor-to-ceiling windows, a charcoal-painted kitchen, and warm wood-burning stove. Honeymoon bliss with forest panoramas.
