From W Costa Rica to W Aspen, W is Bringing its Work Hard/Play Hard Philosophy to Five Fabulous Global Destinations this Year.
Bootcamp on the beach. Mountaintop movement class. Paddleboard pilates. A W Hotels FUEL Weekend means working out never feels like work.
In 2018, W Hotels launched FUEL Weekends: fitness-focused vacation packages that combine celebrity workouts, killer parties, delicious and healthy cuisine and unforgettable adventures all at one stunning W destination.
Turning the typical fitness retreat model on its head, FUEL Weekends are powered by the brand’s DETOX. RETOX. REPEAT. philosophy to give guests everything they need for a life in balance. With last year's overwhelming success, there are more than double the FUEL Weekends in 2019 on a sprint around the globe.
Whether you crave time in the sand or the snow, W has it covered with five fabulous locales this year:
- The just opened W Costa Rica – Reserva Conchal (Feb. 28 – Mar. 4);
- The soon-to-open W Dubai – The Palm (Apr. 11 – 14);
- W Koh Samui (Jun. 20 – 23);
- The soon-to-open W Aspen (Aug. 23 – 26) and
- W Muscat (October).

What does a FUEL Weekend Look Like? Here are some details for W Costa Rica:
DETOX: SWEAT IT OUT
When guests are ready to get to work, FUEL Weekends offer daily options for well-rounded workouts in multiple disciplines including yoga, movement + mobility, high intensity (HIIT), and bands + resistance. At the helm of FUEL Weekend classes are well-known, high-energy instructors who lead pro-level lessons (and stick around for the afterparty). Experts at W Costa Rica will include:
- Jonathan Leary: Dr. Leary is a concierge wellness doctor (the first and only!) turned entrepreneur and the creator of Remedy Place, a new type of health club that is launching in LA, combining hospitality, experience and balance to health regimens.
- Y7: Co-founder and CEO, Sara Levey, and top trainer Joanna Cohen bring sweat drippin’ and beat bumpin’ to yoga.
- Barry’s Bootcamp: The original cardio & strength interval workout, Barry’s Bootcamps are immersive, high energy and the fastest, most fun way to get fit.
- Bec Donlan: Creator of Sweat with Bec, Bec Donlan caters to the health-conscious, party-goer who loves a celery juice just as much as a tequila soda.
- Ely Peñas: Creator of Stand Up Paddlebord (SUP) Pilates, a fusion of Pilates and yoga on a stand-up paddle board, Ely’s classes combine a perfect combination of core strengthening, stretching and mind body balance.
Can’t get enough? As the ultimate experts in customized, experiential travel (from FUEL Weekend fitness retreats to WAKE UP CALL music festivals), W always has more in store. At this year’s first FUEL Weekend, guests at W Costa Rica can choose their own additional adventures including jet skiing, surf lessons and private personal training. In addition, guests can round out the jam-packed weekend with beach volleyball, a catamaran excursion or dance to beach club beats at Zona Azul, the hotel’s private beach club.
RETOX: SOAK IT IN
There’s no such thing as cheating the routine at a FUEL Weekend. W believes hard work should be rewarded, so indulging one’s taste buds after an invigorating workout is a must. From welcome cocktails and light bites upon arrival to open bar sessions set to world class DJs and late night, poolside parties, every FUEL Weekend is designed to be savored. At W Costa Rica, FUEL guests can expect tropical eats as well as El Monte Verde, the hotel’s adult take on our favorite juice pouches from childhood made with gin, mangosteen and cas fruit.
DO IT AGAIN: REPEAT
Rates for the FUEL Weekend at W Costa Rica start at $1,449 USD per person for double occupancy rooms and $2,099 USD per person for single occupancy rooms.
