Marriott to debut The Luxury Collection Down Under in 2021

Marriott International has announced the Australian debut of The Luxury Collection, with the upcoming opening of a new hotel in Tasmania.

Slated to open its doors at the end of 2021 The Tasman, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Hobart will be the first Australian showcase of the brand, a global collection of 110 unique hotels and resorts.

Originating in 1906 as an assortment of Europe’s most celebrated and iconic properties, including historical treasures such as the 15th century Gritty Palace in Venice, today The Luxury Collection is an ensemble of some of the world’s finest properties in more than 30 countries and territories.

“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, area vice president of Australia, New Zealand and Pacific at Marriott.

“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).”

Connecting Salamanca Place with an elegant fronting on Murray Street, The Tasman forms part of Parliament Square, a new centre for Hobart that is just steps from the famous Salamanca Markets, St David’s Park and the vibrant waterfront of Sullivan’s Cove.

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 walking the history-filled hallways of the original 1840s heritage building, to admiring the understated luxury of the Art Deco building, to taking in the spectacular views of the Hobart waterfront from the new glass-ensconced Pavilion building.

Renowned Tasmanian chef Massimo Mele will act as culinary director at the hotel’s signature restaurant, combining his passion for championing local producers with the generosity and warmth of Italian hospitality.

An intimate and sophisticated cocktail bar hidden within the original sandstone building will offer an old-world bar experience reimagined for modern times, with an inspired cocktail menu celebrating indigenous Tasmanian ingredients.

Stephen Morahan, general manager of The Tasman, said: “We look forward to bringing the unique Tasmanian character to life for our guests, and hope to leave them with an expanded perspective that will last beyond their visit.

“Our blend of personalised, genuine and anticipatory service will mark the charming, yet refined experience of a stay at The Tasman.”
