WHERE LIFE HAPPENS
A place to see and be seen in, WET Deck is W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island’s epicentre, a showstopper swimming pool and terrace that set the stage for whatever the day may hold.
With a colour palette inspired by the reflection of light on oil, the perimeter lattice-effect walls cocoon the swimming pool, while the terrace beneath, with a DJ booth inspired by the geometry of Abu Dhabi’s architecture, is the centrepiece for the hotel’s day-to-night scene. Drawing on Arabia for much of the design, the dining chairs were inspired by local weaving, while the pattern of the day beds pays homage to henna drawings, and the over-sized lamps take note from shisha pipes. Whether the sun is coming up or setting over the horizon, WET Deck allows guests to rev it up or recline and unwind at leisure.
LIVE IT UP
With 499 guest rooms, each with a balcony, floor-to-ceiling windows and either Race Track or Yas Marina views, a reservation at W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island guarantees world-class panoramas.
The hotel’s two bi-level Extreme WOW Suites are set over 409 square metres, with personal elevator, sweeping balconies, a private lap pool, intimate private dining area, kitchen, steam room, sauna and direct access to the SPA. Exuding attitude and luxury, under a lustrous Swarovski light installation designed to mirror the racetrack below, the Extreme WOW Suites are the epitome of cool, and a scene-stealing residence for those who live life in the fast lane.
SOAK IT IN
Work-out or chill-out? At W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island, why choose when you can do both. The hotel boasts two outdoor rooftop pools, a 24-hour state-of-the-art FIT with grand views of Yas Marina, and an award-winning Spa.
A fusion of sophistication, style and Middle Eastern traditions, this two-storey spa offers an unrivalled sensory journey and features 11 treatment rooms, including a couples’ VIP treatment suite that houses its own private hammam, steam room and rain shower. There’s no better place to sit back, soak it all in, and leave your wellbeing in the hands of the experts.
A WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES
With seven different destinations to sate your appetite, W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island’s B&F offerings are driven by passion for flavour and fuelled by diversity.
Garage brings together innovators in gastronomy from around the world to create five new dining concepts: Nikkei House that merges traditional Peruvian and Japanese cuisine; Steam Table inspired by street style Asian fare, with dumplings and noodles; Mezza Bar that curates Middle Eastern fare; Meat Vault, a contemporary grill concept; and Tart Van, Garage’s dessert truck. The adjacent W Lounge, with its three bars, is the perfect place to mix and mingle after-dark. Designed around the concept of a ‘super bloom’ – a natural phenomenon that awakens wild fauna – the interiors are a kaleidoscope of vivid colours, where nature becomes fashion, fuelled by cocktails of clashing colours and sounds that feed the senses.
THE LIVING YEARS
A tribute to the hotel’s avant-garde design, and its sweeping steel and 5,096 diamond-shaped glass panels outside, the Living Room is also inspired by the heritage and physical aspects of Abu Dhabi: the striking columns represent fossil dunes created by nature; the undulating ‘veil’ sofa depicts the curves and flow of the hijab; the welcome desk ‘oil drops’ represent the prosperity oil has brought to the UAE capital; and the ‘peg wall’ nods to the history of pearl diving in the emirate, the pegs replicas of the turtle-shell nose pegs originally used by pearl divers.
As if taking you on a historical journey through Abu Dhabi’s history, as you walk across a carpet inspired by the surrounding mangroves, in the Living Room you can sit, drink coffee at Roastery, and immerse yourself in a hotel that seamlessly marries the old and the new, embracing the slower days of the past whilst celebrating an ambitious vision for the future. With contextual style found in every corner and energy coursing through each corridor, W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island is a spectacular destination for those in search of a stay with an abundance of charisma and soul.
