Nice, clean, modern, spacious room with balcony. The buffet breakfast was extraordinary especially the French toast, the sausage, dumplings, and the selection of fresh juices (the bar tender made for me a green apple - ginger - cucumber-celery juice). The gym has the best view facing the Marina. The staff were very friendly and efficient… Read more
Nice, clean, modern, spacious room with balcony. The buffet breakfast was extraordinary especially the French toast, the sausage, dumplings, and the selection of fresh juices (the bar tender made for me a green apple - ginger - cucumber-celery juice). The gym has the best view facing the Marina. The staff were very friendly and efficient especially at the check-in counter and the restaurant. Their attention to detail was commendable - special mention to Rose and Prasad at the Restaurant, Julius the bartender and Diana at the Reception. Truly a 5 star service! We will definitely come back! Read less

Extremely friendly and helpful receptionist Lydia. She organized everything for me, confirmed all of my questions and called back so promptly. She was very professional and ended the phone call by wishing me a happy birthday in advance. A lovely booking experience.

My review would be a story to tell about the best choice I made ever to chose W Yas Hotel as a place to celebrate in. My husband and I, decided to sign our wedding contract in your luxury hotel, and we got surprised with the ambiance they made for us to turn them from team to a real family who actually we miss on that day. That was touching a lot. Plus the upgrade they offer, the compliments we received, the congrats we had it was like a dream. If anyone read my review please don’t think twice to be part of their journey! Special thanks to Fahed, Hamza, Melena, Sina, kaikai, Rose, Mrs Melanie for being such generous... and so many name that we forgot. Can’t stop thanking you guys for the priceless vacation you offer.

I was in awe when I saw the hotel from afar. The exterior is unique and well-designed. Upon check-in, receptionist is very welcoming and assist us immediately.

I was in awe when I saw the hotel from afar. The exterior is unique and well-designed. Upon check-in, receptionist is very welcoming and assist us immediately. T'was a very smooth and hassle-free process. From reception going to the next building where our room is located, the interior is lit. BTW, my room is in the second building near Yas Marina Area. Finally, we reached into our room and I was amazed how spacious it is and so neat. Room service is quick and very responsive. Requests arrived in no time even on late night. Roastery (hotel cafe) is a real deal. Coffee is just as good as Starbucks coz they roast it in-house every other day. We were served by Ari (Barista) and have some FYI chitchat about the Roastery. He is friendly and fun to talk with. He's one of the first and best staff I interacted with. I took my dinner and breakfast at the Garage (one of the hotel restaurant). OMG, the food was delish. We enjoyed it much and it's really worth the price. There are wide array of choices from oriental to western cuisine. I want to commend Marla, Gambir and Rose for their excellent service. They took good care on us and especially on our orders. 5/5 stars for them. Best part of the hotel that I love the most is the WET deck, sundeck and FIT (gym). I also loved the Yas beach as complimentary on my stay. I highly recommend this hotel to all kind of travellers. check them out. P.S I was lucky enough to be granted early check in and late check out. THE BEST!!!! Read less

Spent a night for a quick staycation. I had always wanted to visit and it did not disappoint. First the hotel itself is just gorgeous. Every detail is thought of, the design has a lot of Emirati and Arabic influences, while keeping with the W brand. Because of covid, some restaurants were closed and unfortunately the spa has not reopened yet.… Read more
Spent a night for a quick staycation. I had always wanted to visit and it did not disappoint. First the hotel itself is just gorgeous. Every detail is thought of, the design has a lot of Emirati and Arabic influences, while keeping with the W brand. Because of covid, some restaurants were closed and unfortunately the spa has not reopened yet. That being said, the service was just one of the best in town. From being offered a fresh coffee when check-in was a bit longer than usual, to a spontaneous upgrade to an amazing suite, smiling faces everywhere (restaurant, pool side, etc), everyone asking if everything is perfect at all times. Even when I checked out, the cleaning lady on my floor stopped what she was doing, took the time to ask me how was my stay and came to call the elevator for me as my hands were full. I was lucky enough to see some race cars while I was there, and you also get to see airplanes from rooftop pool. Will definitely be back, for a stay or even just the restaurants and spa. Quite an amazing place. Read less
