Yas Island Rotana

The hotel

In 2007 this was just an area of sand. Today however stands a multitude of hip and modern hotels in the Yas Island development, outside of the main city. The hotel is smart inside-out, with excellent choices of colour palettes throughout adding a warm and comfy touch to the mix. This is ideally located for those wanting to visit the amazing Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld, Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi or the Yas Marina Circuit, all of which can be seen from the hotel. Yas Island Rotana offers a delightful choice of restaurants, with an excellent fusion of continental and traditional selections that include Indian, Arabic and Continental cuisine. The hotel also offers an exquisite steakhouse serving the best prime steaks and grilled favourites, a modern and traditional Indian restaurant and an urban-chic lounge bar perfect to unwind with great ambience and music where delicious food and some great late night cocktails are served. Rooms are spacious and quiet with modern day amenities and come with a great bathroom which features a rain shower. Large, modern and comfortable rooms, pleasant outdoor pool and terrace, friendly and helpful staff. Marvellous!

Very near to the abu dhabi airport almost 6 to 8 km took only 10 minutes to the hotel. Standard check in time is 12 we arrived at 8 but they simply checked us in, no issue of arriving early or waiting. Yas beach vouchers should be given on arrival as the beach cost 60 dihrams for entry.

Good staycation experience through out our stay. Most of the staff are reliable and approachable. The environment is good. The Pool is good and the life guard is very funny and approachable. Good food but the services is quite not good in choices.

We stayed 1 Night at Yas Island Rotana. The overall experience was good. The staff were very professional, warm welcome and helpful. They provided facility to keep our luggage while visiting Theme park, that would be grateful. We faced some minor issues in Living Room and Bathroom.

I spent 5 nights in the Yas Rotana hotel. It is a very nice place if you want to spend most of your time on the YAS island (WB, Ferrari World, Waterworld, etc). I spent most of the time in the city. With taxi it is around 30-50 mins to the city, with public transportation around 60-70. My tipps: -free bus between the hotel and the airport (A19) -if you want to use the public transportation in the city, then do not forget to buy the bus card at the airport, since on the YAS island it is not possible to buy card... -visit the YAS beach (free vouchers are available in the hotel) Read less
