On 11 November, as the heat relents in Abu Dhabi, Warner Bros will invite fans of its huge amusement park on Yas Island to extend their stay in one of the 250 plus available rooms of its first-ever hotel.
Visitors of the Warner Bros Hotel may expect a unique stay experience as memorable characters and heroes the likes of Daffy Duck and Harry Potter are set to grace the walls of its rooms and restaurants.
Here’s what we know so far about the up and coming star-studded Warner Bros Hotel UAE.
Where is the hotel located?
Warner Bros Hotel is located in Abu Dhabi within walking distance to the award-winning Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi theme park and is expected to be a major addition to Yas Island‘s immersive attractions.
When will it be open?
Warner Bros Hotel Abu Dhabi will be officially opened on 11 November 2021.
What can you expect from the hotel?
The hotel is set to introduce a new international standard among Yas Island’s vast selection of hotels by offering guests the unique opportunity of staying in a studio-themed hotel while visiting the island’s other award-winning entertainment and leisure attractions.
The hotel itself has 257 rooms spanning eight floors incorporating modern décor that will celebrate Warner Bros’ vast collection of movies and series. The property’s contemporary design will also include WB restaurants, a top-notch spa and sports club, as well as a shaded rooftop pool where Yas Island’s distinctive skyline will make their cinema moment life-size.
The experience begins the moment guests arrive at the property. The iconic Friends fountain, where Joey, Rachel, Ross, and the rest of the crew inspired so many to pack their bags and move to the big apple, greets guests signalling the start of their stay.
A digital display spanning the height of the building will also immerse guests by displaying videos curated from Warner Bros’ vast repertoire of films and shows. The narration continues as guests enter the lobby with a corridor displaying a selection of familiar artwork.
What are the hotel’s amenities?
The hotel will offer families a wide range of leisure facilities, including a children’s pool, as well as an indoor and outdoor Kid’s Club. In addition to being perfectly family-friendly, the hotel will also incorporate all the facilities that a wide range of business and leisure travellers might need, such as a large ballroom, a wide range of high-quality meeting rooms, a fully-equipped fitness center and a beauty salon.
Guests will also be able to dine in one of its five restaurants, among which are Sidekicks, The Director’s Club and The Overlook. Discerning fans will inevitably recognize a number of tunes being played on the piano from Westworld as they wine and dine in the restaurant.
Children may also be able to meet their favorite Looney Tunes characters and receive an in-room gift.
Those who are looking to obtain mementoes of their stay in the Warner Bros Hotel will be able to do so by visiting the Prop Shop; a souvenir shop featuring a collection of artworks and props based on the Warner Bros cinematic history.
