Yas Island: Our Tips

Where to stay

Yas Island has no shortage of luxury hotels, including the five-star Yas Viceroy, which straddles the island's Formula 1 circuit! At Yas Plaza choose from an impressive selection of places to stay, including the Crowne Plaza, Staybridge Suites, Rotana, Radisson Blu, Centro, and Park Inn.

Where to eat

Many of Yas' best restaurants can be found at its hotels, including the Rotana's Blue Grill steakhouse and top Indian restaurant Rangoli. Not sure what you're in the mood for? Then head to Yas Mall to browse a variety of options to suit any price range. There's a food court, sure, but many of its best eateries are dotted all over the place. It's worth exploring, so don't go when you're already ravenous!

Amazing tour, amazing guide, amazing experience!!! Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful experience. Our guide Gouda was very knowledgeable & we learned so much not just about Abu Dhabi but the UAE. He answered all of our unrelated questions graciously, he was our photographer, & Gouda along w/our driver made the tour flawless. Our tour was on NYE & they made sure we made it back to Dubai in plenty of time to avoid traffic and road blocks which were happening right at our hotel. They also went above and beyond to help us find the best transportation for NYE night. If all the guide are like ours this will be a great experience for you!!!

Sammy was great guide especially arranging visit Palace

Plenty of cultural background would have liked more time at Mosque and Heritage Village. Could have done without visit to Ferrari World. A very good tour would recommend especially Sammy and our excellent driver.

Full day of sightseeing and interesting stories!

Everything was great. Mohamed, our guide, picked us up on time and he was very kind all the tour. He told us a lot of interesting stories about their way of life and traditions. Besides this, he briefly explained about the tourist attractions we had visited. It was enough time to visit all the landmarks we planned from the beginning. Definitely I'd recommend this tour, especially if you want to get out of Dubai for a day.

Very informative day with many places to see.

Our tour guide Adel was an excellent guide, he had a lot of knowledge about the Emirates and took us to as many places as he possibly could. My 3 year old son in particular enjoyed the day as Adel managed to keep him amused. Well worth going on this trip, highlights were the Grand Mosque and the Emirates Palace.
