Shortly after opening a W Hotel in Dubai, the W brand debuted its latest property in the United Arab Emirates, W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island. The property is the only hotel in the world located on top of a Grand Prix racetrack. The architectural marvel sits in the racetrack and near the local marina, giving guests additional access to Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi’s biggest shopping destination, as well as Ferrari World and Warner Bros. Studios.
The nearly 500 guestrooms and suites provide floor-to-ceiling views of either the Grand Prix racetrack or Yas Marina. The presidential suite is more than 1,300 square feet spread over two floors and boasts its own private lap pool, sauna and 180-degree views of Yas Island.
From atop the hotel, at the pool bar, guests enjoy live DJ sets and views of the Yas Marina Circuit. For on-site dining, guests pick from Garage, an á la carte dining hub with five concepts for a mix of cuisine, including Lebanese, Peruvian and Japanese; Amici, an Italian restaurant; and Angar, an Indian eatery.
“W Hotels seeks dynamic destinations that are multi-dimensional and ever-evolving, and Abu Dhabi, with its cultural DNA that honors a millennium of tradition while boldly embracing what’s new and next, is an ideal fit for the brand,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, W Hotels Worldwide. “The arrival of W in Abu Dhabi marks a new chapter for both the brand and the capital. While paying tribute to the essence and spirit of the city, the hotel creates a modern, energetic and stylish escape unlike anything else.”
