Richard Brekelmans on the success of W Hotel Barcelona as a perfect shooting location


We spoke to Richard Brekelmans, General Manager of the spectacular W Hotel Barcelona, who gave us some exclusive insights into this luxury hotel, its unique architecture and the spectacular view, which are just some of the reasons why it’s so popular as a shooting location.

Richard explains about the eccentric and obvious modern design of the hotel, located on the beach of Barcelona. Opened in September 2009, the W Hotel left its imprint on the cityscape of Barcelona through its stunning sail shape, which is now an icon of the city.


“Production Paradise is definitely a well-known name and the first choice for shootings in Barcelona.” – Richard Brekelmans

The team of the W Hotel, have hosted many shootings for large international fashion and design brands and key publications like Vogue, Elle and Harper´s Bazaar and numerous travel magazines. Through Production Paradise they offer their service packages for international shootings and help position themselves in the international market.

We would like to thank Richard for taking the time to speak with us about the famous and splendid W Hotel Barcelona. You can learn more about the location and the story of W Hotels all over the world on their website.
