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.
