Back in the day, Spitbank Fort was considered ‘a vital chess piece in the protection of British waters against a possible invasion of France’. Nowadays, there’s no threat from France, so this fort has been converted into a luxury hotel that can only be reached by boat.

What’s so luxurious about a hotel in the middle of the sea? Let’s see. An open-air rooftop pool, fire pit with stunning views, a wine cellar, sauna, games rooms, and best of all, you can even try your hand at fishing right off the fort. What other hotel allows you to do that? Start saving now if you want to stay here – I searched a 2-night stay in mid-August and was quoted just a little over $1,700 per night.
