The breath-taking five-star Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island, which recently opened its doors to the public, is set within the Capital’s vibrant waterfront destination, Yas Bay.
The luxurious 74,000m² waterfront hotel provides guests with immediate access to the award-winning Etihad Arena; Abu Dhabi’s first-of-its-kind multipurpose indoor entertainment venue, a variety of retail and restaurant outlets, and the island’s world-class theme parks.
Featuring 545 guest rooms (including 59 suites), the wide range of facilities on offer include signature dining and cafés, a fully equipped Kid’s Club, a Beach Club, a stunning temperature-controlled outdoor pool, a spa and fitness centre, and a multi-purpose conference centre.
Working in collaboration with WSP Middle East (the Design and Supervision Lead Consultant) and HKS, Pascall+Watson have provided full executive architecture and site supervision services for the hotel, retail and restaurant complex, and with WSP Middle East and HOK on the state-of-the-art Etihad Arena.
Hilton has committed to halving its environmental footprint across its operations globally. A focus on sustainable design has ensured efficient water, energy, and waste management systems are in place throughout the resort.
Developed by Miral, Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island underpins Miral’s commitment to positioning Yas Island as a global destination for leisure and entertainment, while supporting Abu Dhabi’s vision of becoming a leading hub for global tourism.
Tyrone Burton, Pascall+Watson’s Regional Director for the Middle East, said:
“Our collaboration with WSP Middle East and HKS on the development of the Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island on Yas Bay’s Waterfront represents a further aspect of our portfolio of work, which supports the United Arab Emirates becoming a must-visit tourism hub."
Mark Small, Technical Director at WSP Middle East, said:
“On behalf of our entire project team, it’s been hugely rewarding to witness the Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island secure the Building Completion Certificate and celebrate its opening in February. From client excellence to world-class health and safety milestones in line with WSP’s Zero Harm vision, there has been no shortage of collaborative stakeholder achievements on this deluxe project, and we are honoured to exhibit this latest success for the wider Yas Bay development.”
