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!

This is the best trip you can can’t to Abu Dhabi for reasonable price

I highly recommend. I don’t know where these bad opinions come from. We are very satisfied with the trip. The bus came on time to pick up us right from our hotel (not listed above but for free). We went quickly to Abu Dhabi, our guide was very kind and gave plenty of information. The car was air-conditioned and we received complimentary water. The program of the trip was great, we saw basically everything worth-seeing, the time was accurate, not too long, not too short, we weren’t tired. The first stop - Ferrari world- is a waste of time, we had only 25 min and we didn’t manage to see anything - this is the only weak point of the program. Next we went to the Grand Mosque. The guide gave us abajas to wear for free. It’s the most important part of the trip. The only regret is we could stay longer in the Mosque because and 1 hour is too short. We also saw Eithad Towers for free inside although it’s not written in the description, you can take photos of everything from above.

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!

Best option for one-day trip to Abu-Dhabi

Im completely satisfied having taken this package for one-day trip to Abu-Dhabi with Arabian Adventure. Our guide has given us all information to understand the overall development of one of the richest country in the world. Starting our trip in a comfortable bus from Dubai, we could understand the development of these two main states in UAE, not only infrastructural, also social, economical and cultural. Of course, the main aspect of this unique mode of production is given by the main source, which is oil. Apart of having the chance to visit Sheik Zayed Mosque, not only I could appreciate its architecture, also feel this culture. I recommend to have this chance with Arabian Adventure

Well organised and our guide was fantastic

We had a great trip to Abu Dhabi. Our guide, Mohammed Iqbal, was very engaging and incredibly passionate about his faith and the UAE. He was incredibly knowledgeable and loved answering everyone’s questions. He really looked after the whole party and we felt like his personal guests for the day. The Mosque was amazing to see and we also loved the surprise trip up the Etihad towers. I’d definitely recommend this trip and make sure you ask for Mohammed Iqbal as he really made it such a memorable day.
