Fresh Picks: MONA The Pavilions

- Joy Pecknold, Passport blog editor

“Fresh Picks” features the latest luxury properties admitted into the Kiwi Collection. This week, we take a peek inside MONA The Pavilions.

Where: In Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, along the rolling River Derwent.

What: What doesn’t it have? A part of MONA (the Museum of Old and New Art), which boast a winery (Moorilla), brewery (Moo Brew), restaurant (The Source) and its own ferry boat (Mona Roma), the Pavilions are the property’s arty accommodations. The seven swank dens are named after Australian architects and artists, and those staying in Charles, Arthur, Sidney or Brett get to sleep with an original painting by the namesake.

Who: Art lovers, design snobs and those who don’t mind a little shock-and-awe. The museum has been called a “subversive adult Disneyland” for some of the controversial works held within it.

Why: Because you’d get in big trouble in you slept inside the Louvre, this is the next best thing. Better in fact, when you consider the comfy bed and other plush amenities.
