Set in the heart of The Solent, Spitbank Fort is the first luxury island in England and is available fully catered for exclusive use hire throughout the year (with one night breaks available on certain dates)with your very own private chef. All of the 8 luxury en-suite bedrooms are decorated and furnished to luxury boutique hotel standards and there is a hot pool on the roof for 16 people with far reaching views across the sea to the coast.


Spitbank Fort has a rooftop with a huge 16 person hot pool, the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of champagne at any time of the day. The two large sun decks are ideal to relax with your favourite book, or if you would prefer to let off some steam, why not take time to unwind in the rooftop sauna? The Spitbank Fort team can organise ferry services to the nearby Gunwharf Quays where you can visit a few bars or enjoy shopping at the South Coast's best shopping venue.


There are plenty of places to choose from when it comes to food and wine on Spitbank Fort; the restaurant The Officer's Mess, The Crow's Nest which overlooks the Solent, or dining areas on the Terrace. Enjoy a cocktail around the firepit looking across the Isle of Wight, or a cold glass of champagne in the Laurent-Perrier champagne bar. During the summer months barbecues featuring lobster, crab and the catch of the day can be organised on the terrace. The chef and his team love colours and flavours and can conjure up delicious British dishes using the freshest local ingredients, or even a Thai banquet!
