The hotels are managed by Aldar and operated by global brands IHG (Crowne Plaza and Staybridge Suites), Rezidor (Radisson Blu and Park Inn) and leading regional operator Rotana (Rotana and Centro).

The introduction of the luxury hotel brand Viceroy to the Middle East, the recognition that continues to be given to Yas Links from the global golfing community, the growing list of superstars to perform here, it all adds up to another exciting and successful year in the life of Yas Island.”
