Representing an investment of $112 million, the property is being created by Abu Dhabi’s Miral, in partnership with Warner Bros Themed Entertainment. It will be operated by Hilton, under the hotel company’s high-end Curio Collection by Hilton brand.

“We are thrilled to be so close to completion on the world’s first Warner Bros branded hotel. The WB Abu Dhabi will be an amazing complement to the adjacent Warner Bros World theme park," says Peter van Roden, senior vice president of Warner Bros Themed Entertainment.

"The hotel will be a first-rate family destination inspired by the iconic WB library of film and television shows. Guests will be able to participate in all the thrills and excitement of the theme park then step inside the hotel for an experience fit for a Hollywood star.”

Located next door to Warner Bros World on Yas Island, WB Abu Dhabi will have 257 rooms set over eight levels.

The property will offer signature WB-themed restaurants, a spa and fitness club, a shaded rooftop pool, a ballroom and meeting facilities. The hotel will also have a range of family-friendly amenities, including a child-friendly pool and indoor and outdoor Kids' Club options.

“We are proud of our long-term partnership with Warner Bros that has resulted in two world-firsts here on Yas Island," says Mohamed Abdalla Al Zaabi, chief executive of Miral.

"The WB Abu Dhabi represents a great addition to Yas Island’s hospitality offerings and attractions, strengthening our commitment to position the island as a top global destination for leisure, entertainment and business. We look forward to celebrating the hotel’s opening later this year and welcoming guests to experience a truly unique hotel.”
