W luxury hotel chain will open a new luxury resort on the beach at Real de Zaragoza, Marbella and is rumoured to cost €300 million.
The hotel chain is part of the Starwood-Marriott chains and is a Starwood’s luxury brand, has more than 60 hotels on the five continents. Currently the W only has one hotel in Spain, the famous ‘candle hotel’ in the port of Barcelona. Although the hotel will not be officially open until 2021, the beach club will almost undoubtedly be open much earlier.
Work on the architectural design for the luxury hotel has already begun. The group paid approximately 50 million euros for the site and the 200-bed hotel and resort is expected to cost a further 300 million. The resort will cover a surface area of 151,000 square metres on the pristine golden sands of Playa Real de Zaragoza, just a short drive from Marbella town. Besides the beach club, the hotel will feature a vibrant bar and a signature restaurant, a spa complete with a beauty salon and juice bar; FIT state-of-the-art workout facility; and two WET pool decks. For those looking for an extraordinary venue for their next meeting, W Marbella will provide five ultra-modern meeting rooms along with a covered terrace, measuring more than 10,000 square feet, ideal for outdoor parties and events.
W Marbella will join the brand’s robust portfolio of 50 hotels around the globe, including the recently opened W Las Vegas, W Goa and W Punta de Mita, as well as the soon-to-open W Shanghai, W Tel Aviv, W Madrid, W Panama and W Dubai – The Palm. W Hotels is on track to reach 75 hotels by 2020.
