One of the most highly anticipated hotel openings of the year, W Retreat & Spa Goa is slated to debut on June 1. W’s resort concept has made a splash in other popular, exotic locales; there are currently W Retreats in the Maldives, Koh Samui, Bali-Seminyak, and Vieques Island. These retreats are stamped with the W DNA, so you’ve got the contemporary design and high-energy nightlife we’ve come to expect at W Hotels (cocktails served in the Living Room, DJ spinning the soundtrack for W Happenings, a chill-out zone on the WET deck). These retreats are inspired by the local setting, and the goal is to create a “place to play and unplug by day, and mix and mingle” at night.

As India’s mythic beach destination, Goa is increasingly also attracting the international jetset. The new W Retreat & Spa Goa will have 105 guest rooms and suites perched on the sands of Vagator Beach. The Telegraph reports that guests will be able to “Vagator’s black rocks to Chapora Fort, soak in Vagator’s freshwater springs, or drop into some Goan trance raves.”
