Yas Hotel Abu Dhabi
The island is home to the iconic Yas Hotel Abu Dhabi and the six Yas Plaza hotels: Radisson Blu Hotel, Abu Dhabi, Yas Island; Crowne Plaza, Abu Dhabi, Yas Island; Yas Island Rotana; Park Inn, Abu Dhabi, Yas Island; Centro Yas Island; and Staybridge Suites.
A true architectural triumph, the five star Yas Hotel Abu Dhabi is the only one in the world to straddle an F1® race track being breathtakingly built half on land and half over water. The hotel’s main feature is its unique ‘grid shell’ - a 219 metre expanse of sweeping curvilinear glass and steel covering that drapes over the two hotel towers, linked by a bridge that crosses the F1® circuit. The ‘grid shell’ features a lighting system incorporating video feeds that are transmitted over 5,096 diamond shaped, colour changing glass panels. The optical effect is stunning, reflecting thousands of coloured lights against the surrounding sky, sea and desert landscape.
