Designed by award-winning Tasmanian architects Morris Nun and Associates, the buildings are conceptually organic, reflecting the surrounding environment which evokes a connection to the sea, through references to waves, sea creatures and sand dunes. The main lodge resembles a giant stingray featuring curved cathedral ceilings, which create a dramatic sense of space, as well as natural materials such as honed marbel, Tasmanian oak, grey iron bard, celery top pine and recycled Sydney blue gum. It features a communal lounge area which is bordered by a fireplace on one side and the view on the other.
Please note this is a non smoking property.
