Goa is a tropical paradise with many dimensions. From the serenity of its churches and tranquil beaches, to bike rides during monsoons and non-stop parties with renowned DJs, it has become a place to unwind for all age groups from across the world.
The main draw ofcourse, remains its beaches, sun, sand and amazing variety of sea food. One of the latest entrants in the hospitality business here is W, slated for an October opening. Located on
Vagator Beach in North Goa, spread over 21 acres overlooking the Arabian Sea, it has 160 guest rooms and suites. A wet pool and deck and a 12,000-sqft spa are tempting indoor leisure options while the outdoors offer treks, bike rides and lounging on the secluded beaches of Vagator and Ozrant.
The property has an expansive view of the Arabian Sea set against dramatic red cliffs, soft sands and coconut palms. Colourful fishing communities, electrifying performances and nightlife during special local festivals, the Carnival and New Year eve parties with Goan trance are a huge draw for Indians and foreigners alike. W’s friendly staff facilitates visits to Vagator’s freshwater springs, wade through farmers’ markets, second-hand bookstores and bakeries at Chapora village. Explore the area by hiking up Vagator’s trademark black rocks to Chapora Fort, a 500-year-old Portuguese structure with panoramic vistas of Goa and the sea.
