The world’s first Warner Bros. branded hotel will open on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island, developer and destination management specialist Miral has revealed.

The WB Abu Dhabi will be managed by Hilton under its Curio Collection by Hilton brand as part of Miral’s AED 627 million investment in Yas Island.

Miral has also appointed Hilton to manage a second property featuring serviced residences to be operated under its DoubleTree by Hilton brand.

When the two properties open their doors in 2021, it will mark the Abu Dhabi debut for both brands – Curio Collection by Hilton and DoubleTree by Hilton – and support Miral’s strategy to create “unforgettable experiences for every guest on Yas Island” and “increase the diversity of hospitality options available to them”, according to Miral Chief Portfolio Officer, B.R. Kiran.

The WB Abu Dhabi, adjacent to Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi theme park, will enable guests to experience recognisable characters from across Warner Bros.’ iconic collection of films, television programmes and comics.

The hotel will feature 257 rooms, signature WB restaurants, a WB store, a spa and fitness club, kids’ club, family pool and an exclusive rooftop pool overlooking Yas Island’s skyline.

DoubleTree by Hilton – Yas Island Residences will feature 156 units, from studios to three-bedroom apartments, providing options to suit all guests, including larger families looking for more space and in-room amenities. Facilities will include in-room kitchenettes, a gym, pool and recreation facilities.
