Tasmania’s UNESCO World Heritage Listed site, Cradle Mountain Lodge, has begun stage one of its redevelopment to upgrade its guest facilities.
More than $10 million will be invested into the property to enhance accommodation and restaurants and improve the lodge’s sustainability practices.
As part of redevelopment, the newly upgraded King Billy Suites are now available to guests, offering a premium level of comfort and luxury.
The suites feature signature statement central fireplaces and famous outdoor spa baths, as well as an elevated mini bar featuring a curated selection of local Tasmanian products.
The lodge’s restaurants have also seen upgrades, with work on Highland completed in November 2019 and The Tavern Bar & Bistro set to re-open at the end of March 2020.
Maintaining its casual food offering for lodge guests and day trippers alike, the lodge’s restaurants will showcase seasonal and local produce.
In conjunction with the upgrades, the lodge has also introduced new sustainable practices to aid improving the ecosystem of its surroundings, starting with the introduction of beehives to produce honey for guests to enjoy but also to increase the number of bees in the area.
Marianne Ossovani, CEO of HTL Partners and head of hotels, tourism and leisure at Elanor Investors Group said Cradle Mountain is a special location that connects guests with nature.
“We understand the significance of the lodge and its history and know that it belongs just as much to the state of Tasmania and to the guests who come back year and year again,” she said.
