One of the most striking things about Saffire Freycinet is its location. It’s located near the Freycinet National Park, near Wineglass Bay, overlooking the marvelous Hazards Mountains. It truly can’t get any better than that. If you’re looking for an escape from the hazardous city life and want to wake up in splendor while listening to birds singing and waves crashing ashore, then Saffire Freycinet is the perfect option for you.

The outside of the resort is built in a modern style, one that’s often thought to resemble a spaceship (but in a good way). The glass expanse overlooking the bay is a favorite spot among guests. One thing is certain – whether you’re enjoying a fabulous dinner after a long day or waking up first thing in the morning in your suite, Saffire Freycinet guarantees spectacular views wherever you go.
