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!

Best Option for Abu Dhabi trip from Dubai

I booked my trip for Abu Dhabi as I'm staying in Dubai and came here on a solo trip. Recieved confirmation from ocean air travels prior to the tour and the vehicle reached my hotel exactly at 8:35 am as it was mentioned. Had a great trip, thanks to tour guide Mr. Usama who kept everyone interested with all the knowledgable details. Mr. Usama turned out to be a great guide and I'd recommend everyone to book this tour with him. The tour was a success with the grand mosque, royal area, qasr al watan palace. The surprise after lunch was especially amazing which took us to the 74th floor of Etihad towers. You should definitely go for this tour and pick Mr. Usama as your guide if you are looking for a trip in and around Abu Dhabi in a single day. I really appreciate Mr. Usama for helping with the pictures too, even more as a solo traveler. Nice job!

Great Guide And Driver, whistle stop tour well worth doing.

Visited Ferrari World, Yazz Island (boat,) carpet "museum" Photo opportunities, Lunch and the Mosque. We were picked up at our hotel by a car and transferred to the coach in Dubai City. Everything was excellent, just 2 things could be looked at? the timings, 2 sets of times were sent to me but the driver turned up in between these times. Lunch, not everyone wants a "eat all you can" lunch.

Fantastic tour of Abu Dhabi, & an exceptional tour guide.

The full day tour was excellent & well worth the money. Angelica the tour guide was excellent & is probably the best tour guide in UAE. Angelica was full of knowledge about our tour & could not have been more helpful. She gave everyone plenty of time for photos & made sure that everyone had a good tour.

Best laugh trying to beat ones husband around a race track.!,

Very well organised but perhaps as only 2 of us went at the time slot. Gear provided good quality and time taken to get kart right before leaving especially for little legged people like me (5ft) Good time allocated to go round track Would definitely go again
