W Mumbai Design Details Revealed, Poised to Open in 2015

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide will open W Mumbai in 2015, marking the debut of W Hotels Worldwide in India.

Located in bustling South Central Mumbai where modern architecture is coupled with colonial cultural monuments, W Mumbai will introduce its lifestyle hotel concept under a management contract with Jaguar Buildcon Private Limited, developed on three acres of land.

Overlooking the Mahalaxmi racecourse, the hotel will form a part of the Namaste Tower, an iconic 55-story mixed-use building designed by WS Atkins of Atkins Design Studio to look like clasped hands.
 
W Mumbai will house more than 350 guestrooms, including two WOW Suites and one Extreme WOW Suite (W’s take on the Presidential Suite); two contemporary restaurants and one destination bar; the signature W lounge (W’s interpretation of the traditional hotel lobby); WET pool deck; SWEAT, state-of-the-art fitness center; and a signature spa for guests to detox and refuel for what’s to come. 

“With the construction of our first W Hotel in India, we expect to see more owner interest in developing this great brand in other key leisure and business destinations in the country,” said Dilip Puri, Managing Director, India and Regional Vice President South Asia, Starwood Asia Pacific Hotels and Resorts. “Locations such as the Delhi NCR region, Goa and Kerala are targets for Starwood to develop W Hotels and Retreats.”
