The only hotel we know that actually has a Formula One racetrack running through it. The Viceroy Hotel, an extravaganza of amazing post-modern architecture, is a "must-experience" playground that is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
The building itself is complemented by uber-stylish decor, a wide choice of international cuisine, a rooftop pool, rooftop bar and a nightclub. Only stay here if you find the prospect of waking to the deep throbbing sound of F1 race cars on the practice track exhilarating, after an evening of breath-taking views and fine dining, and before relaxing by the hotel's rooftop pool, being pampered in the spa or being transported to the Yas Island Beach Club.
The essential features of the five-star hotel (you may never want to leave this place)
A true wonder of a post-modern hotel architecture finds its place directly above a Formula One race-track on Abu Dhabi's very fashionable Yas Island. The very luxurious Yas Viceroy Hotel, with its very extraordinary design, is harmonically placed on both land and water at The Yas Marina Circuit, which is a host of the Formula 1 TM Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Overlooking the Yas Marina & Yacht Club, Yas Island is a genuinely stunning location for anyone who is lucky enough to stay there, be it for high-end business travel or a remarkable vacation.
The Yas Viceroy Hotel is an iconic landmark which defines the skyline of Yas Island and is one of the world's most extraordinary destinations. Why? For the reason that a F1 race track passes straight through one of the wings of the hotel, meaning that you can enjoy high-speed races, practices and front row views as Formula 1 cars rush past and under the Yas Viceroy Hotel – the sound of race cars thundering down the straights and accelerating out of corners can be deafening, but it is also an immense thrill and blood rush that will make you literally laugh out loud with excitement and a sense that you are really living in life's front row.
Nearby, also on Yas Island, there are many attractions such as Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, which is the world's largest indoor theme park, where you can enjoy all the thrilling rides at the World's only Ferrari-themed park track in a variety of high-speed vehicles.
The remarkable and exciting Yas Viceroy is widely recognised as a Middle East's Leading New Hotel, winning an illustrious set of travel awards, including Cityscape Abu Dhabi, Best New Hotel and Arabian Investment Conference and Best Commercial Building. This premier resort sets a standard for stunning design and exceptional service.
A modern marvel, designed by New York based Asymptote Architecture, consisting of two twelve story hotel towers linked together by a bridge made of steel and glass which spans the race track and offers an exceptional range of front row views.
The main feature is the incredible canopy known as the Grid Shell. A 217-meter expanse of wavy and flexuous glass and steel which has an LED lighting system with video feeds that are transmitted over the 5,000 diamond-shaped colour changing LED panels. The amazing structure produces stunning visual effects that create breathtaking light shows and video presentations. The Grid Shell structure which spans across the Yas Marina Circuit F1 race track is a key aspect of the distinctive and cutting-edge design that makes a powerful, futuristic and iconic architectural expression.
