Catering to every palate, Yas Island Rotana offers a range of dining options that cater to the appetite of the most discerning guests.

For those looking for a relaxing drink or light snack the Y Bar, Plaza Café and Aquarius Pool Bar provide refreshments anytime of the day or night. 


Centro Yas Island is Rotana’s first hotel to open under “Centro Hotels by Rotana”, which is a modern, stylish and affordable business hotel brand. Young and fresh, Centro Yas Island is a contemporary concept that is original in its presentation and dynamic in its offerings. This 259 room hotel meets the demands of a new generation of traveller, seeking finesse and functionality at reasonable rates.


“We are extremely happy to have had the chance to open these two properties in Abu Dhabi, especially coinciding with the city’s very first F1 Grand Prix” said Selim El Zyr, President and CEO of Rotana. “The unique location, first-rate facilities and trackside views have once more allowed us to offer holidaymakers something more for their money, a vital factor amid the current economic climate.”
