Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has announced plans to open W Mumbai, marking the debut of W Hotels in India. The lifestyle hotel will be located in Senapati Bapat Marg in Lower Parel, and is expected to open by July 2015.
Under a management contract with Jaguar Buildcon Private Limited, the hotel will be developed on approximately three acres of land and will overlook the Mahalaxmi Race Course. The hotel will form a part of the Namaste Tower, an iconic 55-storey mixed-use building designed by WS Atkins to look like clasped hands. The hotel will house more than 350 rooms including two WOW Suites and one Extreme WOW Suite. Other amenities include four food and beverage outlets including two contemporary restaurants, one destination bar, the signature W lounge, pool, spa, state-of-the-art fitness centre, and luxury designer retail stores. Locations such as the Delhi NCR region, Goa and Kerala are other targets for Starwood to develop W Hotels, Retreats and Spas.
