A new ITV game show, where 10 couples compete for a life-changing £250,000 jackpot, is set to premiere tonight.

Hosted by Stephen Mangan, The Fortune Hotel is based at a luxury hotel in the Caribbean, where each couple is given a briefcase at the start of the series.

Eight cases are empty, one holds an early check-out card, and one contains the coveted £250,000 prize. Throughout the show, contestants can bid, negotiate, and swap cases after completing various challenges.

Although only one pair will claim the prize, all participants will enjoy a luxurious stay at the Silversands resort in Grenada during the competition.

Here’s everything you need to know about the opulent accommodation featured in the show.

Where is ITV’s The Fortune Hotel Filmed?

The show has drawn comparisons to the popular BBC series The Traitors, filmed at Ardross Castle in the Scottish Highlands. ITV selected a luxurious location for The Fortune Hotel, accommodating contestants at a five-star resort.

Located at the southern end of the Caribbean, just 100 miles from Venezuela, Grenada consists of the main island of Grenada, two smaller islands (Carriacou and Petite Martinique), and several additional small islands.

Silversands, situated on Grand Anse Beach, opened to the public in February this year.

How Much Does it Cost to Stay at Silversands?

Grenada’s first contemporary luxury hotel was built at a cost of £98 million, financed by Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris. Silversands offers 43 suites and penthouses, including 4-bedroom private villas that can cost up to £4,400 per night.

The most affordable option is the garden view king room, priced at £500 per night.

Features of the Silversands Hotel

Guests at Silversands have access to four restaurants, a spa, and a variety of activities, including dune buggy, ATV, and Jeep tours, snorkelling, diving, and sunset sailing cruises.

The hotel boasts one of the Caribbean's longest pools (100m), along with a gym, sauna, steam room, ice cave, and ‘experience shower’.

Visitors can also enjoy a 700-metre walk along the beachfront to the Grand Anse Craft and Spice Market, with Annandale Falls located further afield.

Stephen Mangan spoke about the show to Metro.co.uk, highlighting its distinctiveness from The Traitors and its potential appeal.

‘First of all, we are in the sunny Caribbean. We’re not in a gloomy Scottish castle. That brings a whole different feeling to it. It just feels lighter and funnier. It’s a game of bluff, intrigue, forming alliances, all that good stuff, and it gets more and more gripping as the series goes on.

‘But what I love about this show is that it’s not just an hour of tension and drama. It’s funny and it’s fascinating how people behave. They ask each other blunt questions. Some people can’t lie and some are scarily good at it.’
