The Experience

W Barcelona

Step inside. See for yourself. Sail away in sensational style at W Barcelona, a stunning icon where 26 floors of signature W luxuries and pampering take you from the bustling boardwalks of the beachfront to the captivating colors of the Catalonian sky within a reflecting facade of silvered glass. Conceptualized by the renowned Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill, the hotel is a modernist masterpiece of avant-garde architecture anchoring the port’s Nova Bocana, where historic Barcelona meets the timeless Mediterranean Sea.


Wind down in any of our 473 fabulous guest rooms, including 67 suites, two Wow suites and one Extreme Wow suite boasting 360º panoramic views. With about 40 square metres to stretch out in and a spectacular open floor plan styled by Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura, you may never want to leave. From the comfort of your plush signature W bed peer out from soaring floor-to-ceiling windows at spectacular views over the Mediterranean Sea and city of Barcelona. Stay in. Chill out.


Dine in style at Michelin-star rated chef Carlos Abellán’s BRAVO24 restaurant with unparalleled views of the Barcelona shoreline. Get glamorous on our 26th floor hotspot, the Eclipse rooftop bar, from London-based nightlife gurus Ignite Group or make your way down to our signature Living Room for a cocktail (or two).  Take a dip at our WET pool surrounded by sun terraces, cabanas and enjoy the only beachfront access at any hotel in the city.

Dine in. From your early morning caffeine fix, to a customisable six-course menu on one of our terraces for two, whatever you crave, stay in and dine in style. When you’ve got a plane to catch or want to indulge in a picnic along the Barceloneta, take a bite along for the ride with W2GO. These freshly-made meals are perfectly packed and ready to go wherever you do.

Sip on the sand. With an a la carte terrace restaurant and a relaxed beach club, whether you’re a guest or a local, SALT has your seaside needs completely covered. Whether sipping summer cocktails with your toes in the sand and live music in the air, or dining on fresh, sea-inspired Californian gastronomy on the expansive terrace, allow the endlessly clear blue Mediterranean to set the backdrop for an unforgettable day or night.  


Discover Barcelona. Right here, only steps from the spectacular restaurants of Port Vell, the pristine Mediterranean coastline and only minutes from La Rambla or El Born, you’re in the center of it all. Take in the Spanish sun from W Barcelona’s direct beach access at the entrance to the world-famous boardwalk La Barceloneta or jump right in and enjoy the water sports of Puerto Olímpico. Day or night, explore the always vibrant and iconic W Barcelona.

Bliss® Spa

Take a time out. The two-level Bliss® Spa has everything you need to relax and get ready for whatever comes next. While you wait for any of Bliss’ signature treatments like their Ginger Rub, Hot Salt Scrub, Betweeny Wax and Triple Oxygen Treatment, take full advantage of the Jacuzzi, saunas, steam room, sinkside soaps and spa snacks including olives, cheese, fruit and our legendary brownie buffet. However you wish to be pampered, you’ll always enjoy the “BIP” (Bliss Important Person) treatment.


Take a dip. Our outdoor pool is set on the Barcelona shoreline, just steps from the beach, and our private cabanas and deck lounge chairs are the perfect scenes to be seen. With plush signature W towels, fresh fruit, beverages, chilled towels, Bliss Spa sun care necessities, personal VIP services and complimentary wireless high speed Internet access, you won’t have to bring a thing. For a more elevated experience, reserve our exclusive Extreme Wow Cabana for up to eight of your closest friends and relax into your private Jacuzzi, welcome cocktail in hand. Our WET® Deck Insiders are available day and night to make sure your poolside and beachfront needs are met in style.

Staying in? Unwind in one of our private cabanas, where you’re so close to the action, yet so far away from it all! The Sun & Cabanas area is a peaceful sanctuary to relax and enjoy—luxuriate in a plush signature W towel, fresh fruit, beverages, chilled towels, Bliss Spa sun care necessities, personal VIP services and High Speed Internet Access for the ultimate R&R.
