Preliminary work on the development of the new Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa at Ocean Village has begun.
The start of the development marks a major milestone for the city, introducing Southampton’s first luxury five-star hotel. When completed the property will feature 85 bedrooms, a spa, gym and swimming pool, along with the award-winning Jetty restaurant concept, and a rooftop Champagne Bar.
Enabling works and setting out are now underway, with construction due to follow in the next few months. The anticipated works programme will then run for approximately 18-24 months.
The property, which is earmarked as Harbour Hotels’ flagship in the UK, is the fifth hotel to join the company’s portfolio.
“We are delighted that preliminary work is now underway for this exciting project. We are very confident that the hotel and its facilities will prove a fabulous addition to Southampton, boosting tourism and becoming a destination of choice for city-dwellers and visitors alike,” said Mike Warren, MD of Harbour Hotels.
