W Hotels Worldwide has planned to open the W Ibiza in the beachfront neighborhood of Santa Eulalia del Río in summer 2019.
The 162-room W Ibiza, which is owned by Inversions Hoteleres Ebza, will be near Ibiza's beaches, nightclubs and rural inland attractions. The new W hotel will follow the openings of the W Barcelona and the W Madrid, which is set to open in 2019. The W Marbella will open a year later. Prior to signing the hotel, W Hotels has held several W music events and partnerships in the city since 2010.
The W Ibiza will also increase the total number of W Escape resorts to 13 along with the hotel group's portfolio of more than 50 W Hotels worldwide. It is part of W Hotels' plan to expand its global portfolio to include 75 hotels by the end of 2020.
In Europe, six new W Hotels are in the pipeline and slated to open by 2021. These are The Residences at W Algarve in Portugal opening in January 2019, the W Algarve opening in March 2019, the W Prague in the Czech Republic opening in November 2019, the W Budapest in Hungary opening in June 2020, and the W Edinburgh in Scotland opening in June 2021.
W Hotels recently entered Central America as part of its global expansion. The W Panama, which is owned by Evolution Tower, opened in early March 2018 in Panama City's business district. Studio Gaia designed the 203-room hotel with 28 suites in the 50-floor Evolution Tower. This W Hotel followed the openings of the W Shanghai-The Bund and the W Goa in 2017.
