Located at the heart of the Yas Marina Circuit, home to the Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the Yas Hotel welcomed its first guests for the inaugural race in 2009 where it unveiled its unique design and world class amenities. Since then, it has developed a reputation as one of the most iconic five star hotels in Abu Dhabi, welcoming high-level governmental meetings, awards ceremonies and corporate conferences as well as being recognised as the “World’s Best New Hotel” at the World Travel Awards in 2010.
Following a comprehensive selection process against objective criteria, the Viceroy Hotel Group was awarded the operation of the Yas Hotel due to its passion for design and personalised service, its ability to maximise returns whilst maintaining brand identity, as well as its highly experienced team.
At all of its signature hotels, which include Santa Monica, Anguilla, Miami and Snowmass, Viceroy Hotel Group provides amenities that include dynamic dining venues and destination spas created for the brand’s diverse business and leisure guests.
Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Deputy CEO & Chief Commercial Officer, Aldar said: “I am delighted to announce the appointment of Viceroy Hotel Group to operate the Yas Hotel. Their reputation for delivering returns for owners and operating unique “experience” hotels make them the perfect fit for this important asset. As the owner of seven hotels on Yas Island, Aldar plays a unique role in capturing synergies and creating economies of scale across these assets for the benefit of both ourselves and our hotel operators. In addition, we continue to coordinate efforts to further increase the attraction of Yas Island as a destination through our operations, marketing and continued development.”
Brad Korzen, CEO of Viceroy Hotel Group, Viceroy Hotel Group, added: “We are thrilled to be adding this incredible property to our expanding management portfolio of ultra luxury hotels. It is only fitting that Viceroy’s first property outside North America is in Abu Dhabi, the home of our international headquarters.”
