Inspired by nature
The Moss hotel is located on the quayside of Salamanca Place in the heart of Hobart’s vibrant culinary and cultural center.
Moss takes its name from the moss growing on the rocks. The hotel resides in two separate Georgian sandstone warehouses at n°25 and n°39. The family group Behrakis, in collaboration with the architectural studio Circa Morris Nunn transformed in 2019 these warehouses into a downtown retreat inspired by nature, designed for escape and respite. The Studio Ongarato was responsible for the visual identity of Moss. The collection of green artifacts reflects green as the color of life, renewal, and nature. Interiors have original features including raw wood beams and sandstone block walls, with a palette of forest greens and vertical interior gardens. The atmosphere is relaxed and warm. Local arts and crafts are featured throughout the hotel, showcasing the Tasmanian community.
Moss has 41 rooms spread over the two buildings, offering six types of rooms: Loft, Pod, Bower, Grove, Grove Balcony, and Grove Bath. The bedrooms are decorated with black Tasmanian wood headboards and bedside tables by Andrew Bull, bespoke cushions by Hannah Lorenz, Noon chairs by Matt Prince Design, and Dowell side tables. Each room features a specially commissioned print by Australian photographer Derek Henderson, capturing elements of Hobart and Tasmania. The bathrooms are clad in hand-painted dark green tiles, black ceilings, and Grown Alchemist toiletries.
Common areas include a living room with black wood Loft sofas and armchairs by Scott Van Tuil, oak coffee tables and a fireplace. Moss has his own travel guide called The Host’s Bible, which shows you the locals’ favorite bars, pubs, and restaurants.
Moss offers an authentic Tasmanian experience.
