5* standard Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa, joins Business South in the Year of the Champion
Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa has joined Business South as a new Champion
Business South was established in 2007 to be the independent representative of businesses in the South of England. To unite businesses, to gain strength from this collaboration and to use it to make a difference to both individual organisations and to the wider economy.
In the last decade, countless business connections have been made and 85 per cent of Champions are making connections and doing business as a result of being a Champion.
Beyond making connections between individual businesses, the Champions programme and the strength that such an influential group of organisations represents, has achieved a huge amount for the region. Together, the Champions have promoted the area, demonstrated the importance of their sectors, provided invaluable thought leadership, influenced policies and investment decisions and delivered on a range of projects.
Southampton’s only 5* standard Hotel, Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa, is the latest Champion to join the network. The super yacht inspired hotel is already transforming the marina with its unique design before it’s opening in October 2017.
An iconic milestone for both the city and Harbour Hotels, the hotel will feature stunning contemporary design, alongside the Group’s award-winning restaurant and spa brands and the city’s most exciting new rooftop destination bar.
Making it one of the most desirable marina locations in the UK, the 91 bedroom hotel’s design will reflect Southampton’s thriving marine culture.
On the ground floor, the award-winning Jetty restaurant concept will drift out onto an extensive outdoor terrace, featuring luxury relaxation pods to take in the marina views.
'We are so excited to welcome Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa as a Business South Champion and being one of the first business organisations to showcase the hotel to business leaders at our Directors Dinner on 9th November’ said Leigh-Sara Timberlake, Champion Director at Business South.
‘Hospitality plays a key role in the vitality of tourism and employment and to have such an exquisite brand joining the South Coast will strengthen prosperity in the region.”
Debbie Randle, Director of Sales, Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa said ‘Harbour Hotels are a rapidly expanding hotel brand within the South and becoming a Champion with Business South will enable us to collaborate with the top businesses in the region and take advantage of being part of such an extensive and well-supported organisation’.
