Hilton has announced plans to partner with Miral to build a five-star resort on Yas Island.
The 641-room Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island resort will be built as part of Miral's $3.3bn (AED12bn) development on the southern end of Yas Island.
Due to open in 2019, the new hospitality project will be located on a 3-kilometre stretch in Yas Bay. The resort's facilities will include a multi-purpose conference centre, seven dining outlets and an urban beach concept with an infinity pool suspended above the waters of the Arabian Gulf.
"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," said BR Kiran, Chief Portfolio Officer of Miral.
Carlos Khneisser, VP, Development, MENA, Hilton added: “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."For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
