Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island opens at Yas Bay
The first attraction at Yas Bay has opened on Yas Island. The waterfront five-star Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island is now open for overnight stays.
Located in the hotly anticipated Yas Bay development, the new Hilton resort is a family-friendly waterfront property with 545 guestrooms, including 59 suites. Making the most of its island location, the resort blends a marine-inspired palette with a sleek design that fuses simplicity and modernity. Right on the water’s edge, the resort has a huge outdoor pool complex lined with palm trees and water features. On one side of the temperature-controlled outdoor pool is a relaxing area with a Jacuzzi for guests seeking downtime. The other side is perfect for families with a children’s splash pool, play area and access to the kids club. A spokesperson for Al Maryah Island said: “We are proud to unveil the various development plans. The latest projects have been in the planning phase for several months, and the destination’s management has collaborated with global leaders in recreation and entertainment to bring the Abu Dhabi community the best experience. “These plans are also enabling Al Maryah Island to further their horizons to deliver on bespoke community events and strengthen Abu Dhabi’s position in the global tourism market.” An ADGM spokesperson added: “We are proud to witness the expansion of Al Maryah Island, further reinforcing this prestigious location as a great place to live and work… These new offerings will add to ADGM’s attractiveness as a regional business hub and further cements our position as the international financial centre to watch.”
A new beach club will also open here later in 2021. It will resemble an island surrounded by water and with its own beach floating in the bay. The beach club will be accessible for hotel guests via a walkway, and will also accept day visitors. When it comes to dining, the hotel is home to Osmo – Lounge and Bar, where guests can have coffee, snacks, afternoon tea or sundowners. Graphos Social Kitchen is an all-day dining eatery that’s reminiscent of a stylish European food hall with a variety of international cuisine on offer. Live cooking stations dotted across the restaurant allow a level of interaction and theatre, all in a socially distanced manner. At pool level, guests can dine at Capila – Pool Bar and Grill, where shisha will also be served. In the future, two new dining outlets will join the resort, and guests also have direct access to the soon-to-open Yas Bay Waterfront Promenade, where there will be a host of cafes, restaurants and stores.
