Monday, July 10, 2017
Over the weekend, Hilton announced that the Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island Resort will be a part of the AED12 billion development plan announced by Miral for the southern end of Yas Island. The company is furthering their commitment to make the island the world’s most sought-after destination by 2022.
“We are proud to announce our partnership with Hilton which represents another milestone in our journey to establish Yas Island as a top global destination,” said Miral’s Chief Portfolio Officer B.R. Kiran. “The creation of a world-class family resort at the heart of Yas Bay, our iconic waterfront development, will provide visitors with a five-star opportunity to extend their leisure and business stays and enjoy the unique attractions and memorable experiences that only Yas Island can offer.”
Opening in 2019, the Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island Resort will be located on a 3 kilometer stretch of the Yas Bay, an area which is evolving into the most iconic waterfront destination in the region. The resort features a contemporary urban beach aesthetic with an infinity pool suspended above the waters of the Arabian Gulf, as well as other convenient amenities like a multi-purpose conference centre and seven dining outlets. Hilton Abu Dhabi is also located near the 18,000 Yas Arena, an indoor arena designed to host events for sports, major cultural performances, concerts, and MICE activities.
“This represents a landmark deal for Hilton and puts us at the forefront of the transformational journey Yas Island is undertaking to become one of the world’s top leisure destinations,” said Carlos Khneisser the VP of Development at Hilton. “Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island Resort is indicative of the calibre of project we are looking at for our resort portfolio here in the Middle East.”
Yas Island hosts a number of fantastic attractions close to the resort including the Yas Marina Circuit race track which hosts the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi. The South of Yas Island development is looking to attract more than 15,000 new residents, 14,000 daily visitors, and 10,000 working professionals at the new campus of the twofour54 media zone.
