Hyderabad: The Yas Island is a tourist haven, providing a plethora of options for family or solo vacations, providing facilities of fine waterfront dining, adventure sports, world-class hospitality, shopping, entertainment and novel tourism.
Ranging on a 25-kilometre stretch and located 12 kilometres from the Abu Dhabi Airport, visitors can reach the island within half-hour of landing. It is a well-planned tourist destination, with currency exchange desks also arranged at the airport, as well as the Yas Mall, while cards are also widely accepted at all venues.
The Yas Island is also host to The Hilton, a renowned hospitality brand, with its DoubleTree providing apartment studio suites.
The Warner Bros. World is located right next to DoubleTree, providing easy accessibility and making the venue an easy accommodation choice.
While the continental breakfast offered at DoubleTree remains a treat of fruits, bread, salads, beverages and desserts, dining at the Yas Bay Waterfront, as well as the Yas Marina, with breathtaking views, offers an astounding experience combining food, view, music and ambience.
Bushra by Buddha Bar at the Yas Bay Waterfront, and Penolepe at the Yas Marina are some of the fine dining options on the island.
The island also boasts the fastest roller-coaster at the Ferrari World — the Formula Rossa — which goes from zero to 240km/hour in 4.9 seconds. The 60-second ride is a thrilling experience even for the spectators as it rolls and rides on the two-kilometre zig-zag track at high speed.
The go-carting experience at the Yas Kartzone in the Yas Marina Circuit is also popular.
Ferrari World is a must-visit for anyone planning a trip to the Yas Island. The theme park is connected to the famous Yas Mall, turning it into a one-stop gaming and shopping venue.
Flying Aces, Turbo Track and Mission Ferrari are other popular adventure rides, in addition to fun rides for children such as Bell' Italia, Formula Rossa Junior, Flying Wings, Turbo Tower and Junior Grand Prix.
The theme park also has a ‘World Champions’ zone with famous models of Ferrari racing cars on display, with the names of winners in the background, comprising a banner of former Formula-1 racing ace Michael Schumacher.
The Italian Zone, besides serving authentic Italian cuisine, provides an ambience akin to a cosy and warm beautiful street eatery in Italy.
Merchandise shops at the Ferrari World offer sports apparel, footwear and eyewear for sports enthusiasts.
While the Yas Mall brings dining, shopping, exquisite brands and entertainment under one roof, it is also for hardcore shoppers who want to explore international brands for jewellery, watches, clothing and furnishing.
The Yas Island is an attempt to bring together exceptional tourist experiences under one hub and is turning out to be popular among the global audience.
