We select, you rate. Scores are on a 20-point scale, and they're assigned by our members who actually stayed there. If a hotel's rating falls below 16, it's gone — so your post-stay review is actually our most important quality-control tool. Thanks for that.

Between the two of them, Abu Dhabi does tend to be ever so slightly more restrained than Dubai. But a hotel like the Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi is a reminder that restraint is a relative term. Here on Yas Island, straddling the Formula One racecourse, is the massive wing-shaped Viceroy, looking for all the world like an airport terminal or some equivalently grand post-modern architectural gesture. It’s arresting enough by day, but by night its glass-and-steel shell is illuminated by countless LED panes, synchronized in an animated light show. And with all the exterior fanfare, the interiors have some work to do, if they’re not going to pale in comparison.

We’ll end the suspense, if there was any — they more than hold up their end of the bargain. From the soaring public spaces to the stylish rooms and suites to the restaurants (an even dozen of them), the Viceroy is every bit as impressive from the inside. The accommodations bypass the usual Emirates-style pomp and gilt in favor of a slightly edgier modern look, albeit one that’s every bit as glossy as you’d expect from the region’s luxury hotels. Rooms, while not quite enormous, are wired to the gills, and make up some space with their open-plan layouts; the suites, however, go from big to absolutely extravagant, and lack for nothing in terms of luxuries.

We’ve already mentioned the twelve restaurants, but we’ll mention them again, just so you’re sure you’re reading us right — cuisines include everything from Japanese and Indian through housemade pasta and upscale Arabian fare. And the ESPA wellness center is, as you might expect, a bit more elaborate than the ordinary hotel spa — in addition to its treatment rooms it’s got a lounge overlooking the racetrack, as well a Viceroy Presidential Treatment Suite, for guests who’d sleep better knowing their private hammam is never more than a dozen steps away.
