Spitbank Fort An extraordinary private island hotel in the Solent
A luxury, full-board stay at Spitbank Fort - a unique hotel off the South Coast with a rooftop hot tub, champagne on arrival and extras

The historic Spitbank Fort may not have fulfilled its original purpose as a naval defence, but it turns out it was destined for far more glamorous things. Now one of the most exclusive and unique hotels in the British Isles, this private island playground features spa facilities, a Laurent-Perrier champagne bar and eight luxuriously converted rooms.

With its own departure lounge in Gunwharf Quays, the experience starts before you're even on the water. You'll travel by private boat across the Solent and check in to a room complete with super king-size beds, high riveted ceilings, cowhide rugs and masses of space - enough for each room to have been divided into two if the designers had felt less decadent.
