The Yas Viceroy is an architectural marvel, one of its kind 5-star hotel, built half on land and half on water, and the F1 race track adjoining it. Its glass ceiling, a thing of wonder, lights up into different colours throughout the night, and is visible even from longer distances.
But the most thrilling part about the property is that the Formula 1 circuit runs around it – and you can enjoy a brunch while listening to the sweet whirring of the cars racing on the track. As you enter the lobby, the warmth surprises you – the cosy armchairs and the books with more armchairs to sit and read in. A door right beside the reading room takes you to their lovely deck.
For people who love water, their poolside with access to the bar, will be of interest. After exploring the property, you can proceed to the rooms. On your way to the room, you will notice that in keeping with the theme, the walls are designed in a white interwoven pattern, just like the glass roof.
Each room is elegantly spread and spacious. The property has 499 rooms and suites with over 1600 square metres of conference space. It is one of Emirate’s largest hotels. As you enter the room, you’ll see two freshly made beds, with a living area space to lounge in. Across the living space, the balcony opens to the view of the race track, and you can wake up to the drivers racing on the track.
Apart from its modern architectural beauty, the Yas Viceroy has a lot to offer within the premises too. Following is a list of places you can explore to have fun at the property in your free hours:
