Hilton and Miral will be launching a five-star hotel and resort in Yas Island’s Yas Bay. Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island Resort is scheduled to open in 2019.
The resort will be part of the US $3.26bn (AED12bn) development plan announced by Miral for the southern end of Yas Island.
Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island Resort’s facilities will include a multi-purpose conference centre, seven dining outlets, and an innovative urban beach concept with an infinity pool suspended above the Arabian Gulf.
Miral, chief portfolio officer, BR Kiran, said: “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.
“The creation of a world-class family resort at the heart of Yas Bay, our waterfront development, will provide visitors with a five-star opportunity to extend their leisure and business stays and enjoy the attractions and memorable experiences that Yas Island can offer.”
Carlos Khneisser, VP development, MENA Hilton said: “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. 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.”
