The Luxury Collection Hotels and Resorts will be debuting the brand’s first ever hotel in Tasmania in before the end of 2018, following a full-scale renovation. The Tasman, owned by Trawalla Group Parliament Square Hotel Operator Pty Ltd, will reside in repurposed heritage buildings in Parliament Square.
“Australia is an extremely desirable destination for the Luxury Collection and the Tasman is sure to become the place for global explorers to stay while visiting Tasmania,” comments Mitzi Gaskins, Global Brand Leader, The Luxury Collection and JW Marriott.
Upon opening, The Tasman will be ready to offer 128 luxuriously appointed guest rooms and suites with carefully restored features. The hotel’s corridors will showcase exclusive pieces from local artists, while an upscale restaurant, lobby lounge and a whiskey bar provides a variety of dining experiences that reflect the spirit of the destination.
The original features of the heritage buildings such as the Georgian and Art Deco architectural style will be maintained throughout, embodying The Luxury Collection’s indigenous standard of luxury.
“It has always been our intention to partner with a brand that appreciates and embraces Tasmania’s natural beauty, history and heritage, which is why we chose to work with Marriott International to bring The Luxury Collection to Tasmania as part of this exciting new development,” says Alan Schwartz, Managing Director, Trawalla Group Parliament Square Hotel Operator Pty Ltd. “We also share the brand’s passion for design, indigenous experiences and refined luxury, and are committed to working with the best talent and experts in the industry to bring this project to its full potential.”
