On 5th April, Starwood Hotels & Resorts announced plans to open W Mumbai, marking the debut of W Hotels Worldwide in India. Located in bustling South Central Mumbai where modern architecture intertwines with colonial cultural monuments, W Mumbai will introduce the world renowned lifestyle hotel concept to one of India’s hippest cities, where the country’s music, fashion, media and entertainment industries converge. W Mumbai will be developed on approximately three acres of land and is slated to open in 2015.
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 to look like clasped hands. Expected to be a landmark in the city of Mumbai with its iconic design, W Mumbai will be a highly anticipated and spectacular addition to India’s financial and fashion capital.
The hotel will house more than 350 stylishly appointed 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. W Mumbai will also house stylish spaces for luxury designer retail stores.
