W Hotels part of the Marriott International announces the opening of W Goa, on Vagator Beach. This will be the brand’s 50th hotel worldwide and they hope to reach 75 hotels by 2020. Ready to take the Indian market by storm, the group could not have found a better setting for the W hotel. The W seems to be in synch with Goa’s vibrant night life feel and its colourful culture with its bold designing and dynamic lifestyle programming.
Goa has its own charm that is irresistible to young and old. Whether you want to soak in the sun and relax or party into the wee hours of the night or shop in the flea markets or marvel at the architecture of some of the oldest churches or visit a different café for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Goa has it all.
Located on Vagator Beach, the W boasts of 160 vibrant guestrooms, including Vilas, Chalets, a Marvelous Suite and an Extreme WOW Villa- their take on the Presidential Suite. It spans over 25 acres of land and is set against the backdrop of a 500 year old Portuguese Fort. A ninety minute drive from Goa’s International airport and you will find yourself transported to paradise.
As you step foot into the hotel one cannot help but notice the huge, unframed doors that are perpetually open and adorned with art. Rich colours and fabrics have been used all across the hotel creating a kaleidoscope melding of colours throughout. Each guestroom features a chandelier that gives the feeling of the lights melting from the ceiling and each bathroom adorns a mirror in the shape of a Bodhi Leaf.
The spacious Clarins Spa is spread over 14,000 square feet and is inspired by the great baths of Pompeii. From steam to sauna to an Oxygen room to eight treatment rooms to a heated pool to a fully equipped gym, I don’t think one can ask for more.
Their restaurants churn out lip smacking food and the Woobar transforms from a lazy comfortable day hangout place to a buzzing lounge by night. The Rock Pool, set upon a high cliff with the ocean below and the sun setting in the horizon, is destined to be the next big party place in Goa.
To top it all the brand’s iconic Whatever/Whenever service delivers guests whatever they want, whenever they want it.
