W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island – Super Grand Prix Hotel!W Abu Dhabi  
Yas Island

This hotel is constructed from two twelve-story towers - one in the middle of the track and one in the marina with a spidery structure (grid shell) linking them.

There are two rooftop swimming pools. In addition, there is an enormous roof with thousands of sparkling, ever-changing LED lights to delight you. For dinner, you can choose from a vast array of 7 restaurants.

The unique hotel is built over the Yas Marina F1 Circuit, which hosts the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix™, so the hotel is Formula 1® crazy once a year!

In one of the top racetracks in the world, cars routinely reach top speeds of 200 mph (320 km/h). The 200 feet (60 meters) tall “Sun Tower” is solar-powered and rotates, giving you the best view of the action on the track below.

You can swim in the rooftop pool of W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island before heading down to the track to test drive the most exotic and exciting cars in existence. Forget your butler, as the two presidential suites have kitchens and top chefs.


The five-star hotel W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island (formerly Yas Viceroy hotel) has been one of the biggest eye-catchers of the Yas Marina island since its opening in November 2009.

The Yas Hotel

Yas Island, where the Yas Viceroy is built, is also called the Monaco of the Middle East. The striking hotel is built around a marina, partly on the water and partly on land.

Yas Marina Hotel

The 499-room hotel consists of two hotel buildings, each with 12 floors, which are connected by a beautifully designed iron framework and a glass walkway.

Yas Viceroy

This framework consists of 5096 diamond-shaped glass panels, which are white during the day, but as soon as the sun has set, the lamps are switched on, and the facade regularly changes color, offering a spectacular sight.

The W Abu Dhabi - Yas Island is perhaps Abu Dhabi's most famous hotel, thanks to its bold design and location.
