Are you a staycation lover, with a particular penchant for pleasure? These are the reasons we think you should take notice of the W Abu Dhabi’s latest offers, which promise serious bang for your buck.

If we had to choose just one word to describe a stay at the W Hotel on Yas Island, we’d go with exhilarating.

The feeling starts as soon as you draw up to the iconic building. Its curvaceous and futuristic architecture is pleasing on the eye, while its unique – it’s the only hotel in the world on a racetrack – position teases excitement. The modern design runs inside, with locally inspired elements such as oil drop shaped welcome desks and liquid gold-coloured furnishings.

Foodies and good-time seekers are certainly spoilt for choice when staycaying here. There are six restaurants and bars to choose from, each with a unique atmosphere, plus weekly events. Garage’s eclectic interiors lay the foundations for its well-travelled menu featuring dishes from around the world and every Friday the B.I.G brunch ramps up the party vibes here.

During the day, the ‘adults-only’ WET Deck is the place to be for sun-kissed cocktails and bar bites by the pool. Head there on Saturday’s for the Soak it Up package, which includes frozen drinks and live music. As darkness falls, the W Lounge is where the party crowd descends for sprawling views, cool DJ sets, and crafted drinks.
