Yas Island Viceroy Hotel, Abu Dhabi, UAE

The Persian Gulf is known for a lot of man-made islands, one of which is Yas Island.

It was being constructed during my visit and even though it was not complete, the Viceroy Hotel was finished and opened to the public for the first time.

This was one of the places I looked up before going and once again,ย I dragged my friend there on a hot afternoon. I wanted to see it during daylight and nighttime. I like to get the full experience! lol

It’s main focus is the diamond mesh that covers it, like a veil. Thisย  steel and glass panel structure stretches 217 meters over the hotel which is what attracted me to it in the first place.

You are able to access what is called the Skylite, a poolside restaurant/bar area which is directly under this beautiful grid-shell.

After touring around and seeing the contemporary interior as much as we could, we went directly up to the Skylite and chilled there until it started getting dark.

And unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture the magic of how the structure looked at night so you are just going to have to check out the awesomeness in person or on their website OR on Arch Daily.

Since we didn’t want to completely look like losers, we ordered ice cream.

  2. What a lovely place! Very modern without looking like something out of science fiction.

    And who doesn’t love ice cream, right? ๐Ÿ™‚
