Abu Dhabi VIP hotels and hospitality

Join us in Abu Dhabi for the Formula One Grand Prix
25th-27th November 2016

As the desert heat drops away, the Yas Marina Circuit comes to life. The sound of engines breaks the late afternoon tranquillity and Formula One springs from the pit garages - teams and drivers keen to see the final race of the 2016 season, secure vital points and crown a World Champion.

Whilst the circuit is a 'Tilke-drome' with long straights and tight technical sections, it's setting surrounded in part by the Yas Marina together with the architecture of the Yas Viceroy and other structures on the island, lends this relatively new circuit a sense of permanence not often seen with the newer race venues visited by Formula One.

The setting also provides for great access - Yas Island is minutes from Abu Dhabi's International Airport, around an hour from Dubai's (even larger) airport, 20-40 minutes from the Corniche, 20 minutes from Saadiyat Island, and a very similar 20 minutes or so from some of the most pristine desert we've ever seen.

Yas Island is home to a number of 4* and 5* hotels (even a 3* property) alongside Ferrari World (with the world's fastest rollercoaster), Yas Waterworld and a fine array of restuarants. And for race guests, there are also a number of concerts taking place over race weekend with headline acts that have included the likes of Pharrell Williams, The Who, Jay-Z, Muse, Armin Van Buuren and Depeche Mode!

Abu Dhabi F1™ GP

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is one of the most spectacular on the calendar, held as the sun sets on Yas Island - and the Formula One season.

With the unique feature of starting as the sun drops, and ending under the glare of thousands of lights in the early desert evening, the race has quickly become a firm favourite with drivers and fans alike.

Luxury 3, 4 & 5* Hotels

From the incredible 5* Yas Viceroy to the 3* Centro by Rotana, all our hotels are less than 10 years old - and provide astounding service and attention to detail.
Most of the hotels we offer are on Yas Island and are just minutes from the circuit.

More about Abu Dhabi, and the UAE

Abu Dhabi is so much more than the Formula One race - but we guess you already knew that! We are fortunate to work with a number of specialist providers who can help to ensure your experience in the United Arab Emirates will blow your mind.  From seaplane excursions up and down the spectacular coast line, to a trip to an 'Arabian Nights' themed resort in the desert where you'll eat a mix of traditional and modern food whilst being entertained by musicians, singers and belly dancers. For golfers there are a multiple golf courses either close to Abu Dhabi City (including the HSBC championship course) or further afield.

Should you wish to extend your experience with some total relaxation, then take off to Al-Ain, close to the Oman border, where the pace of life is somewhat slower and the resort hotels even more stunning. Here you could take an evening camel ride as the sun sets around you, or go dune running, learn to fly falcons or just brush up on your golf...
