Marriott International has been chosen to manage the Yas Island hotel, which is currently flagged as the Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi.

Effective July 2018, Marriott International will assume operations of the Yas Island hotel, which will go through a refurbishment period before opening under W Hotels. This will mark the debut of the brand in Abu Dhabi; it already has one operational in Dubai, with a second due to open this year.

Areas across the hotel will be refreshed and redesigned as per W Hotels’ brand standards, with an upgrade to its lobby and pool facilities, whilst remaining open to guests.
