Every W Hotel around the world has a distinct totem near the entrance with varying styles and material finishes to reflect the identity of the city. This design captures the glitz and vibrant energy of Goa, one of the prime party destinations in India. After multiple prototypes and experiments with various materials, it was eventually manufactured using high grade stainless steel and the surface comprised of multiple metal flaps that move inwards and outwards with the wind. This gives the totem a shimmering effect.
