If you’re on the hunt for a unique and relaxing experience during your next visit, consider checking in at one of the following accommodation properties in North West Tasmania, each of which features its own unique outdoor bath or tubs:

Outdoor Baths with a Twist at Eagles Nest Retreat

Eagles Nest Retreat spoils you for choice with a multitude of outdoor baths and jacuzzis. You can bathe and relax in nature in complete privacy. But which outdoor bath to choose? An outdoor 12-jet farmer’s bath, a lakeside spa bath, a mountain-view bath, or a milk-vat bath? With views of farmland and Mount Roland, each suite at Eagles Nest Retreat offers a special bathing experience.

Tiny Escapes Cradle Valley Outdoor Baths

Tiny Escapes Cradle Valley offers various tiny houses in the Cradle Valley region, bordering the Cradle Mountain National Park. Each tiny house is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, including a kitchenette, bathroom, and bedroom.

The Blackjack Deluxe Chalet invites you to jump in the outdoor tub, sit back under warm water and watch the mist evaporate in the cool air. There’s nothing more relaxing than soaking under the trees after a day of exploring or hiking in the Cradle Mountain National Park.

Arc Pavilion at Compass Hut

Discover the rustic charm and luxurious comfort of Compass Hut‘s Arc Pavilion. This is a cosy tiny house surrounded by incredible views across the countryside all the way to the ocean.

While the fully-equipped space is brimming with amenities, it’s the outdoor bath that truly sets this stay apart. Imagine soaking under the stars or greeting the day with a sunrise bath, all from the privacy of your own deck. It’s a bath experience that seamlessly blends the beauty of the outdoors with a touch of indulgence.
