Abandoned Sea Forts Turned Into Luxurious Hotels

August 17, 2013 | in Architecture

These three sea forts were built by the French during the reign of Napoleon III, for protection from the British Navy back in the eighteenth century. In our days these forts were abandoned for a while until they were transferred to private ownership.

Now, each of these three forts has its own function. For example, Horse Sands Fort became a museum. Spitbank Fort is a luxurious hotel with eight suites. The third one, No Man’s Land Fort, will be an even bigger hotel. Initially, each of the rooms served as places to store the weaponry. The reception of the guests is made exclusively from sea: from boats and yachts. At the moment, Spitbank Fort, in addition to the suits, is offering a relaxing lounge, a spa, a heated outdoor pool, a bar and a fire place. The project cost the owners about $ 4 million.
