Real estate firm Miral and Warner Bros (WB) have revealed the opening date of the first WB hotel on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island in the UAE.

Located next to the Warner Bros World theme park, the hotel is slated to open for guests on 11 November 2021.

The hotel has 257 rooms over eight levels and feature curated artwork inspired by three themes that highlight Warner Bros’ record in making movies and shows.

Guest amenities in the hotel include premier spa and fitness club, a rooftop pool and Warner Bros store, the Prop Shop.

Dining venues include Craft Services, Sidekicks, The Matinee, The Director’s Club and The Overlook.

WarnerMedia Global Brands and Experiences president Pam Lifford said: “Opening the doors to the first ever Warner Bros branded hotel is a moment that we have long dreamed of, and it’s truly magnificent. The Warner Bros.

“Themed Entertainment team and our incredible partners at Miral and Hilton, designed this with fans in mind and have curated an outstanding hospitality experience that gives guests from around the world a unique way to further connect with the iconic Warner Bros. brands, franchises, and characters they love.”

The hotel, which is being developed by Miral in partnership with Warner Bros Themed Entertainment, was reported to be 90% complete in July this year.

The project is built with an investment of $112m. It will be operated by Hilton under the Curio Collection brand.

Miral chairman Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak said: “This new story-driven hospitality experience is set to excite guests from all over the world, further reinforcing Yas Island’s position as a global entertainment, leisure and business destination and supporting Abu Dhabi’s ambition to attract greater numbers of local and international tourists.”
