W Retreat & Spa – Vieques is W Hotels’ first property in the Caribbean. It’s only the second retreat for W Hotels and preserves the company’s devotion to luxury and stylish interior design. With two private beaches on the 55 square-mile Vieques Island, 8 miles from Puerto Rico, this truly is a retreat.
Patricia Urquiola create the dialogue between the designed interiors and the natural setting creates an eclectic combination that extends from the surrounding landscape to create a sense of contrast with the interior furnishings. Designed to be airy and whimsical, there is an evident seduction in the combination of pure and recycled materials, organic forms, and avant-garde furniture.
Guests first experience this when they enter the Living Room, a lobby full of contrasts. Influences from the Caribbean landscape outside informs the natural and spacious elements of the interior design. Those rustic notes are combined with whimsical, unconventional furnishings, like oversized metal lamps, black leather chairs, and teal and red couches by Moroso.
In the outdoor lounge is a grand fire pit and view of the sea where guests can relax in black and bronze Canasta sofas and armchairs, Leisure Lite wooden day beds, and Hatteras Southern Pine Rockers. Chosen artworks for the lounge are metal sculptures of frogs and turtles.
