Kabuki by the Sea, Swansea, Tasmania

Swansea is a town located in the centre of Tasmania’s east coast, on the northwest shore of Great Oyster Bay and overlooking Freycinet National Park. Swansea was not settled until 1821 when George Meredith, his family, and workers arrived from Pembrokeshire, Wales in 1821. Meredith obtained a grant from Lieutenant Governor William Sorell to farm in the area around Oyster Bay. The land was developed and made suitable for seasonal crops and grazing stock and a tannery and flour mill were established beside the Meredith River. Whaling stations were also set up on nearby islands to enable the export of whale oil. Swansea was originally called Great Swanport and Meredith built the family home, Cambria, which is now in private hands. There are other important buildings in the town including Morris’ General Store which has been owned and run by the Morris family for over 100 years. The Swansea Bark Mill which processed black wattle bark was used in colonial times in the tanning industry and is now a museum. Schouten House is a fine early Victorian colonial house built in 1844.

At Kabuki By The Sea all seven cottages of this 4-star hotel are tailored to satisfy guests’ needs. All rooms have microwave, coffee/tea maker, non smoking rooms, hair dryer, as well as other amenities. In addition, this property in Swansea has pets allowed rooms and a car park. Guests may make use of the hotel’s excellent recreational and leisure facilities including the garden. With its commitment to service and focus on hospitality, you’ll enjoy your stay at Kabuki By The Sea. Of all the magnificent views in Tasmania, it is hard to imagine one better than the view from Kabuki By The Sea. Certainly there can be no better located accommodation right on the clifftop, where even the seagulls seem to be on the payroll. They perform almost on cue nearly every night! Understanding that this is an experience to savour, the tariff includes a three-course lunch or dinner for two. The restaurant is open every day for coffee, lunch, and afternoon tea plus dinner during the summer months, so everybody driving along the East Coast can spoil themselves.

Individual Cottages

Kabuki Swansea Accommodation cottages have one bedroom, sitting/dining room with full kitchen facilities, and all the comforts plus an elegance one expects to find in a Japanese Ryokan. Each cottage offers a touch of Japanese interior with an exquisite view to the Great Oyster Bay. Each window faces directly to the east to unveil a magnificent view of the sunrise which you can enjoy from your bed.

There is also a delightful two bedroom cottage with a double room and a twin share for a group or family of four people.
