It has been confirmed that Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island Resort will be part of the AED12 billion development plan announced by Miral for the southern end of Yas Island.
The resort, opening in 2019, will be located in Yas Bay, a 3km stretch that is anticipated to become one of the most iconic and vibrant waterfront destinations in the region.
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.

The resort is also nearby the 18,000 capacity Yas Arena, a multi-purpose indoor arena designed to host large and intimate scale events including sporting competitions, major cultural performances, concerts and MICE activities.
B.R. Kiran, chief portfolio officer of Miral 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.
