W Hotels is well on its way to reach the 75-hotel goal by 2020, most recently with the opening of a new home in Goa. Go inside the luxury India escape now...

W Goa, the brand's first foray into India, is now open. Situated on the state's famed Vagator Beach in the West, the new luxury hospitality address is sprawled over 25 acres and offers breathtaking views of the Arabian Sea, while the 500-year-old Portuguese Chapora Fort looms in the background.

"It's hard to imagine a more perfect setting for our newest W Escape than Goa, with its electrifying nightlife, vibrant fashion scene, and colourful culture," said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide. "As our first location in India, this highly anticipated debut from the W brand promises to be unlike any other hotel in India, combining the bold design and dynamic lifestyle programming that W is known for with a uniquely Goan-twist."

Designed by Eco-ID and interior experts Design Wilkes, W Goa combines the region's natural beauty and charm with the hotel's renowned bold and contemporary styling. Step inside the grand entrance that's infused with artwork (created by a local artist) enroute to your guestrooms, think villas, suites and the Wow Villa, W's equivalent of a presidential suite. Each palatial pad follows a purple and blue colour palette, accented by retro-fitted mirrors, foggy metals and other kaleidoscopic elements to offer a heightened sense of enlightenment.

To satisfy your culinary desires, W Goa offers its signature Pan-Asian restaurant, Spice Traders – opt to dine under the stars. To complete the W Goa experience is the brand's famed Whatever/Whenever service, which essentially fulfils any guest requests, at any time.
