Double take? Spa hotel shaped as cruise ship opens in Southampton marina

At first glance it may appear as just another cruise ship moored in Southampton – but look closer and you will see it is, in fact, a new spa hotel.

UK-based boutique hotel operator Harbour Hotels' latest property occupies a prominent spot at Southampton Port’s Ocean Village marina and mimics the design of a super-yacht, helping it blend into its surroundings.

The 91-bedroom Southampton Harbour Hotel is owned by property developer Nicolas James Group and will be operated by Harbour Hotels on behalf of its owner.

Facilities at the hotel include a HarSPA-branded spa, featuring seven treatment rooms and a specialist mud room, where mineral-rich mud, heat and steam are used to create an immersive spa experience.men.

Elsewhere, the hotel’s top floor features a rooftop destination bar, kitchen and club called ‘HarBAR on 6th’, with outdoor fire pits and a wood-fired pizza oven.

The hotel is part of a larger regeneration project looking to transform the Ocean Village marina into a premium waterfront destination.

As well as the hotel, the latest project – for which AECOM provided project and cost management services – includes an 82-unit residential development, comprising a commercial zone on the ground level and residential apartments located on the upper levels.

The Southampton site is the 10th in Harbour Hotels’ growing portfolio of boutique hotels.
