W Hotels sets the scene

W Hotels Worldwide celebrated in honour of the opening of W Goa. Over 300 local influencers, tastemakers and celebrities, including Bollywood actresses and fashionistas Jacqueline Fernandez and Radhika Apte; Fashion Designer and W Goa influencer Nida Mahmood; and Zumba expert Sucheta Pal, joined the celebration.  The soon to open W Goa, will be the first W Hotel in India, disrupting the traditional luxury hotel scene in ways that only W Hotels can.  The night was filled with explosive fashion and music including a curated fashion show to unveil a chic capsule collection inspired by W Goa created by India-born, New York-based designers Sachin and Babi Alhuwalia.


“From its fresh take on fashion and music to its electrifying nightlife, W Hotels is the perfect complement to Goa’s ever-colorful, fiercely independent spirit,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide. “Tonight in Mumbai, we transported guests to our newest W Escape, drawing inspiration from Goa’s magnetic charm and showcasing how W fuels a lust for life in our guests around the world.”

W Goa will offer 160 stylish and spacious guestrooms, suites and villas. Discreetly spread out over 25 acres of private coastal lands, the hotel’s Living Room, main restaurants and bars boast striking views of the sea. Signature destination restaurant, Spice Traders, offers Pan Asian epicurean flavors amplified with sumptuous ocean views and al fresco dining.  The Kitchen Table, an all-day diner, serves popular classics and modern interpretations of international favorites.  The WET Deck bar refuels guests with healthy snacks and delicious cocktails, while WOOBAR and the Living Room bar transform from comfortable hangout by day to sultry lounge after dark. But a trip to W Goa is not complete without visiting the Rock Pool which provides a stunning vantage spot to admire sunset panoramas of Goa’s dramatic red cliffs and sea over creative cocktails and innovative Indian fare from a wood-fired oven and grill.
