The World's Best Places for Sin

by Colleen Clark

Seek solitude in Tasmania

The resolution: Spend more quality time with the kids.

The last hurrah: If distance makes the heart grow fonder, putting several thousand miles and the international date line between you and your home life ought to do the trick. Saffire Freycinet, an isolated retreat in the wilds of Tasmania, is the perfect place to relax and put financial and career stresses back in perspective. The guest rooms' neutral palette and natural materials will help you tune into your surroundings: the pink granite expanse of the Hazard Mountains and the sapphire waters of Great Oyster Bay, yours to explore by kayak, mountain bike, or on foot. Or just take it all in from your patio—the concierge will deliver a hammock and a favorite book from the hotel's extensive library. After a few days of taking deep breaths of some of the world's cleanest air, you'll be ready to return refreshed, renewed, and eager to gather your loved ones close.
