Luxurious rooftop accommodation in the heart of Hobart

Property reviewed by Rachael Mannell

This sublime rooftop penthouse 'Omnipod' apartment located in central Hobart has grandstand views over St David's Park, Salamanca and the waterfront. With uniquely curated, elegant and eclectic interiors, it contains two bedrooms featuring custom-made king beds, deluxe linen, cashmere throws and pillow menus.

The fully equipped kitchen includes Scholtes cooking appliances, Royal Doulton Steelite crockery settings, cutlery, champagne flutes, wine and whiskey glasses, plus more utensils, pans and platters than you will ever use. Cook up a storm using the breakfast provisions - fresh bread, bacon, sausages, eggs, an organic tea selection and coffee. Of course, the staples are here too - sugar, milk, flour, biscuits, rice, potatoes, herbs, salt, pepper, oil - as well as the practical kit that any cook might find themselves needing mid-mis en place.

If you’re more in the mood for some special room service, Rocky from the Astor Grill will deliver your dinner right to the hotel rooftop. Feel like entertaining? The mammoth artisan dining table comes in at more than three metres long, and will set the scene for a memorable feast enjoyed with friends and family. Those that prefer dining al fresco can head outdoors and fire up the barbecue. While you wait for your dinner to cook, kick back on the illuminated moon lounge or enjoy some stargazing from the open-air Huon pine bathtub.
