Hobart welcomes new luxury pod to the city

Shared by |tags, , , ,

Visitors to Tasmania will soon be able to experience a luxury stay like no other, with the Avalon City Retreat – an "omnipod in the sky" – placed atop a nine-story office building on January 21.

The environmentally-friendly luxury retreat is located in Hobart's city centre, offering spectacular views over St David's Park and out to the waterfront.

Designed by award-winning property developer and project manager Brett Torossi, the Avalon City Retreat is a two bedroom, two bathroom portable accommodation that comes complete with a fantastic gourmet kitchen equipped with stylish Scholtes appliances and two king size custom-made beds.

Adding to the city retreat's appeal is a rooftop deck complete with a barbecue and outdoor bath, and a beautiful huon pine table that can seat up to ten guests.

The sky-high accommodation was prefabricated in Launceston, transported south to Electrona (south of Hobart) for its fit-out with luxury items and then finally finally placed on top of 152 Macquarie Street.

Those looking to spend their Easter holidays in Tasmania may want to experience the Avalon City Retreat for themselves, with the luxury pod open for guests on Thursday March 28. First bookings have already been received.

The glass-front retreat can sleep up to four people and costs $880 per night.

Nestled in the heart of Hobart, the retreat is in close proximity to many of the city's attractions.

On Saturdays take a short walk to popular Salamanca Market, operating from 8:30 to 15:00, to pick up some coffee and fresh croissants for breakfast and wander around the stalls offering organic vegetables, crafts, clothing and more! With Hobart a true ’10 Minute City’ (10 minutes to anywhere) and being nominated Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2013, there is plenty to explore any day or night.
