A luxury, full-board stay at a converted Solent sea fort hotel with a rooftop hot tub - includes transfers, a guided fort tour, champagne and more

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 adults-only private island playground features 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 boat across the Solent and check into a room complete with super king-size bed, high riveted ceiling, cowhide rugs and masses of space - enough for each room to have been divided into two if the designers had felt less decadent.

There are three bars at this exclusive retreat, alongside a wine cellar and games rooms. Up on the decked roof, there's a fire pit, heated hot tub, sauna and restored red lighthouse with an observation deck for surveying those far-reaching views of the South Coast and Isle of Wight. Needless to say, Spitbank Fort bagged itself a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.


In contrast to the sea-lashed exterior, the rooms at Spitbank Fort are a transformation of luxury furnishings and leading interior design. Working with the riveted ceilings and exposed red brick, the rooms boast an impressive floor plan, super king-size beds and a large flatscreen TV. Stylish rugs and period details are mixed with globes and telescopes - the adventurer's essentials.


The Officers' Mess is a beautifully atmospheric setting for fine dining, with historic arched ceilings and views towards the harbour. The Crow's Nest is more modern, with plenty of light and access to a barbecue terrace. The Laurent-Perrier champagne bar has to be one of the most exclusive spots anywhere in the world, while the Wine Cave is a cosy spot for a wine-tasting or an evening tipple.


Take a relaxing steam in the rooftop sauna or a dip in the hot tub to soak all your worries away. For those craving more active endeavors, the hotel will happily organize a number of excursions for you, from fishing to speed-boating.


Occupying an isolated spot a mile from the shore, Spitbank Fort offers total privacy and a unique perspective on the south coast. With panoramic views of the Isle of Wight, Portsmouth Harbour and Spinnaker Tower, you can relax on the rooftop and watch the sun rise (or set, more likely) over land and sea. The fort is reached by boat transfer from Portsmouth's Gunwharf Quays.
