Yas Island: Our Tips

Where to stay

Yas Island has no shortage of luxury hotels, including the five-star Yas Viceroy, which straddles the island's Formula 1 circuit! At Yas Plaza choose from an impressive selection of places to stay, including the Crowne Plaza, Staybridge Suites, Rotana, Radisson Blu, Centro, and Park Inn.

Where to eat

Many of Yas' best restaurants can be found at its hotels, including the Rotana's Blue Grill steakhouse and top Indian restaurant Rangoli. Not sure what you're in the mood for? Then head to Yas Mall to browse a variety of options to suit any price range. There's a food court, sure, but many of its best eateries are dotted all over the place. It's worth exploring, so don't go when you're already ravenous!

Great way to see what Abu Dhabi has to offer.

We had a great day. Our guide Sami was terrific, he was very knowledgable about the places that we went. It was a great way to see the main attractions in Abu Dhabi. Our only advice to make this tour perfect would be to arrange time for a quick lunch as we were gone all day.
