Just 10 minutes from the international airport and 25 minutes from the centre of Abu Dhabi, the Crowne Plaza Yas Island encapsulates the uniqueness of the local area. Mixing business with top-class pleasure, the resort sits on the calm waters of the Arabian Gulf and features a 25-metre outdoor pool, a fitness centre and kids’ club, along with ten state-of-the-art meeting rooms and a business centre. That’s not to mention the luxurious accommodation and array of dining venues.

Choose from an almost endless selection of accommodation at the Crowne Plaza Yas Island, with its Deluxe and Superior, Twin and King Rooms and Suites. Opt for views of Yas Links Golf Course, the beach or Yas Marina Circuit from floor-to-ceiling windows. Families will love the flexibility of suites with separate living areas, there’s a choice of smoking and non-smoking rooms, and all rooms feature free WiFi, flatscreen TVs and comfortable, crisply made beds with fluffy pillows.

Close to the theme parks and family attractions of Abu Dhabi, the Crowne Plaza Yas Island offers all the action of Ferrari World and Yas Waterworld, and soon the shoppers' dream of Yas Mall, opening in late 2014. Corporate guests can close that business deal and get down to some serious team building, or simply jump aboard the free shuttle to Yas Beach and soak up the sun. Work up a sweat in the gym, release some energy on the squash court and cool off in the pool.

From tasty snacks to fine dining, the five dining venues at the Crowne Plaza Yas Island mean there’s little need for guests to venture outside the hotel. Enjoy Pan-Asian specialities from live cooking stations at Jing Asia, European gastro pub delights and draught beers at Stills, and Arabic mezze at the Middle Eastern Barouk Restaurant. There’s also a choice of bars and lounges offering light dishes, poolside cocktails and fantastic views.
