W Abu Dhabi - Yas Island

Abu Dhabi, Middle East

The hotel

Set half on land, half on water, the W Abu Dhabi - Yas Island is excitingly distinctive, both inside and out. There are two sparkling rooftop swimming pools to cool off in, a state-of-the-art gym and a spa with its own traditional hammam and a team of highly skilled therapists to indulge your every whim! Steps away are the Yas Marina & Yacht Club, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Warner Bros. World, Yas Waterworld and the first 18-hole links golf course in the Middle East. There is also Yas Marina Circuit which offers the opportunity to drive the famous race track in a variety of high speed vehicles. As one of the most exciting hotels in the world, you’d expect the restaurants to be nothing short of spectacular, and they are! There are a range of restaurants and bars onsite, we recommend feasting at Amici with it's rustic and unpretentious classic Italian fare. The W Lounge is the perfect places to savour a cocktail whilst admiring stunning city views.

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights - we had it as part of the package with park tickets. Unbelievable value for money! The hotel is super modern, good breakfast, fully justifies 5* rating.

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights - we had it as part of the package with park tickets. Unbelievable value for money! The hotel is super modern, good breakfast, fully justifies 5* rating. As a free bonus you have some racing on F1 track almost everyday, so get the room facing the track for extra fun. The only thing you need to be mindful of is if you plan to use the pools - even in April it is really really hot, as they are on the roof, and i wonder who can stand these temperatures for more than one hour even in the morning. Must be lovely in colder months though. Also, the process of getting customers to sign some receipts for breakfast, even is the breakfast is included in the room rate, although great for some internal business reporting, is a bit frustrating for the customer, i wonder how many times per breakfast employees have to explain to the guests that signing this check does not actually mean an incremental charge Read less

I have always loved this hotel. The new interior is beautiful and makes a mega difference for the better. The lobby space is incredible. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. Rooms are as always have been, better selections of petite treats than before. Cleaning of the rooms is superb, not a spot in sight. I will definitely come back but the staff… Read more
I have always loved this hotel. The new interior is beautiful and makes a mega difference for the better. The lobby space is incredible. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. Rooms are as always have been, better selections of petite treats than before. Cleaning of the rooms is superb, not a spot in sight. I will definitely come back but the staff need to be trained to be a W. As lovely as they are they do not fit the W. I have been to more than 30 W hotels across the USA & Asia and the staff make the difference but not yet in your venue........... Read less

I stayed at W to celebrate my birthday and the stay was better than I could have expected. The rooms were modern and the service was very good. Room service was quick and if you required something to the room, it was done so in a timely manner. The hotel were very kind and considerate and helped made personnel touches to help me celebrate. The wet deck is beautiful, but be sure to reserve if you are staying over the weekend, as the Saturday brunch gets booked up. The place is on a marina and the rooms with a balcony allow you to relax and enjoy the scenic view that is peaceful. It is a ideal location if you wish to stay somewhere near restaurants and bars. In all one of the best hotels in Abu Dhabi I have stayed in at an affordable price. Read less

Ordered mouthwatering Dimsum and the Chef itself approached me and introduced me other variants of dumplings. Chef An’s dimsums are one of the best. After the lunch, decided to stop by the Roastery and Ari prepared a shot of heaven-like coffee. Had a lil convo with him and tbh he’s a good jolly guy. Overall, W hotel AUH has the best employees.
