The world’s first Warner Bros-branded hotel is set to open in Abu Dhabi in 2021.

A partnership between Abu Dhabi’s Miral and Warner Bros, the $112 million (Dh411m) WB Abu Dhabi is already 40 per cent complete and will be located adjacent to the existing Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi theme park on Yas Island. The hotel will offer more than 250 rooms, set over eight storeys, with an interior design that celebrates Warner Bros’s extensive film and television library. There will be signature WB restaurants, a spa, fitness facilities, a large ballroom and meeting rooms, a child-friendly pool and Kids Club, and a shaded rooftop pool.

“Following the successful debut of Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, we are thrilled to expand our presence in the region with the studio’s first-ever branded hotel,” says Pam Lifford, president of Warner Bros Global Brands and Experiences. “This new venture will pay tribute to Warner Bros’ legacy of rich entertainment, offering fans a unique way to experience their favourite brands and characters.”

“We are excited to announce the development of the world’s first Warner Bros themed hotel, here on Yas Island,” said Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, chairman of Miral.

"This is yet another step in our journey to position Yas Island as one of the top global destinations for entertainment, leisure and business. Our partnership with Warner Bros is a unique collaboration that adds another dimension to the outstanding immersive experiences available on Yas Island.”
