What I liked:

Huge rooms with wonderful beds and a great choice of interior materials. The bathroom was very light and airy. The food is excellent throughout. The external design of the hotel is quite breathtaking, by day or night.

What the hotel could do better:

The rooftop pool areas weren't too appealing to us, mainly because the design of the roof edges means the sun is shaded out quite effectively, and there wasn't a lot of space considering the number of hotel guests. We headed to a nearly stretch of 'beach' on the free shuttle bus....but this wasn't brilliant either! (a little scruffy) Best to enjoy all the other fun and interesting activities Abu Dhabi has to offer instead.

Hotel Description

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.

How to get there:

The hotel is located only 10 minutes (by car) from the Abu Dhabi International Airport and 15 minutes (by car) from the city center of Abu Dhabi. Clients are encouraged to check their visa requirements before traveling. Some nationalities can obtain an entry permit (stamped in their passport) upon arrival at the airport. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for questions or assistance with airport transfers.
