Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa
Harbour Hotels has officially unveiled its new Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa, now open at Ocean Village Marina.
The opening of the luxury five-star hotel is expected to create 120 jobs for local people and marks an iconic milestone for both the city and Harbour Hotels.
It features three unique dining experiences, Southampton’s first destination rooftop bar, a luxury spa and health club, private cinema, state-of-the-art meetings and events facilities and breath-taking marina views.
Featuring stunning contemporary design, alongside the group’s award-winning restaurant and spa brands and the city’s most exciting new rooftop destination bar, the 85-bedroom hotel’s unique luxury yacht inspired design reflects Southampton’s thriving marine culture and offers a gateway to the beautiful Solent.
Mike Warren, managing director of Harbour Hotels, said: “We are thrilled to unveil our spectacular new Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa development at Ocean Village, introducing five-star luxury to the marina.
“Attracting tourism and providing a number of fantastic dining experiences, an indulgent spa and Southampton’s first destination rooftop bar for locals to enjoy, we are very excited to officially open our doors.”
The development has been financed by a multi-million-pound funding package from NatWest and Lombard Finance.
Danny Haywood, relationship director at NatWest, added: “NatWest has supported the Harbour Hotels group since 2009, helping drive forward its expansion plans across the UK.
“Harbour Hotels is a dynamic and ambitious business, and we’ve enjoyed working with the team to progress their latest plans, which will not only create a landmark luxury hotel, but bring new jobs and investment to the local area.
“We wish the management team at Southampton Harbour Hotel the best of luck with their launch and we look forward to seeing the hotel ourselves.”
Cllr Simon Letts, leader of Southampton City Council, says of the city’s new addition: “It’s fantastic to see the Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa now open at Ocean Village.
“The yacht inspired design draws on our maritime heritage and is an example of the high-quality construction we welcome in Southampton.
“Catering for the luxury end of the market, the hotel will meet the needs of visitors to the city who are looking to indulge themselves, being the only 5-star venue in Southampton.
“Offering an outstanding opportunity to take advantage of the unique views across the world-famous Solent, this top-end venue at Ocean Village is certainly set to become one of the most unique destinations in the UK.”
