A $25 million luxury resort at Port Arthur is set to go ahead, with developer Federal Group today revealing plans for the landmark project.

The concept, which aims to set a new benchmark for Tasmanian visitor experiences, includes 20 suites – expected to cost guests more than $1000 a night – along with a bar, restaurant and spa treatment facility.

“The resort is focused on providing a unique guest experience that is completely luxurious yet understated and respectful to the site,” said Peter Walker, head architect of Cumulus Studio.

The announcement comes a month after plans were revealed for a $70 million clifftop resort development at Table Cape on Tasmania’s north-west coast.

Federal Group CEO and managing director Greg Farrell said the Port Arthur project would be a catalyst for new business and tourism ventures on the Tasman Peninsula.

“The resort will be discreet yet iconic, offering unparalleled views of the Port Arthur historic site from each of the 20 suites,” Mr Farrell said.

Work at the site is not expected to begin until 2018.
