East coast Tasmania boasts some amazing locations and stunning accommodation options—unique, boutique and classy best describes Piermont Retreat just south of Swansea. Piermont Retreat Accommodation consists of fifteen beautiful self-contained cottages each individually designed and six Spa Suites built using the highest quality natural materials. This retreat offers a one of a kind, fully recuperative experience, in beautiful accommodations for couples, families, and business people alike.
Piermont’s Accommodation could be described as “ecologically sustainable luxury”. This is evident in the lack of superfluous decorations and glitzy polishes. Instead, the lovingly finished details, handcrafted from natural materials, bring about nostalgic memories of good old times, long gone by.
Located on 93 hectares of serene beach frontage, just 3 kilometres south of Swansea, Piermont Retreat is a delightfully different resort on Great Oyster Bay overlooking Freycinet National Park. Featuring walls of local stone almost half a metre thick, local timbers, and roofs of Kashmiri slate, each cottage is built bio-sustainably, with quality fittings and wood fires. Fully self-contained, each cottage features a neutral magnetic field to guarantee restful sleep and that feeling of personal renewal that guests say is Piermont’s signature.
The studio, one, two, and three bedroom cottages vary in size but all have wooden decks with bay views, log fires, understated natural furnishings and fabrics, TV/DVD/CD equipment, and kitchen plus laundry facilities. Some even have spa baths. The spacious Deluxe Spa Suite has the addition of ipod docks, plasma screen, double spa bath, and partial ocean views from the deck while the Premium Spa Suite has panoramic ocean views from its large deck.
Each unit enjoys its own individual design, to maximise the features of its location. Metres from the beach and with exquisite views, they exemplify seaside living. Moreover, they are furnished in keeping with Piermont Retreat’s standards of quality comfort and superb flair with style.
Each cottage has been built bio-sustainably without the use of synthetics or chemicals. Even the water at Piermont is energised, just like deep mountain spring water.
Enjoy the independence of self-catering or dine in the original Piermont homestead. Located in a modern wing of the original 1835 homestead, Piermont Restaurant is truly unique. Thoughtfully designed to complement the original building while incorporating modern, light filled design, Piermont Restaurant is the ideal place for a special meal. Superbly positioned overlooking Great Oyster Bay and central to all accommodation at Piermont, the restaurant is just a pleasant stroll from your cottage. The menu features a strong emphasis on the highest quality Tasmanian ingredients, and the wine list features a hand picked selection of Tasmania’s finest wines. Alternatively, the village restaurants of Swansea are just three minutes away.
There is also a barbeque area and terrace, a large outdoor swimming pool, and a tennis court. Mountain bikes and canoes are available for guests.
Guests at Piermont Retreat have use of the pristine private beach, and can enjoy the hotel’s walking trails, mountain bikes and canoes.

A number of cellar doors and vineyards are also conveniently dotted along this coastline so you can call in and taste the elegant, crisp, cool climate wines they produce.
