Yas Viceroy Hotel

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
The world's first hotel to span a Formula 1 racetrack, the Yas Viceroy Hotel is the magnificent centrepiece of the Yas Marina Circuit located on Abu Dhabi's unique Yas Island. The hotel offers signature 5-star hospitality, hosting 500 suites and guestrooms, a lavish ballroom and six gourmet restaurants.

The hotel's iconic design comprises two elliptical low-rise buildings nestled beneath a 217-metre steel-and-glass lattice that changes colour at night via 5,800 pivoting LED panels. These stunning optical effects and reflections play against the surrounding sky, sea and desert landscape to create an unforgettable display.Both towers are linked with a sculpted steel bridge spanning the Formula 1 racetrack that passes through the building. The hotel's striking design embodies a variety of influences and inspirations – from the aesthetics of racing, to the artistry of ancient Islamic art. The interiors convey a contemporary fusion of elegance and momentum, skilfully crafted with sensuous curves and sleek lines.
