Weekend getaway is a must for me, so we decided to go to Abu Dhabi for a weekend stay at Yas Island Rotana and have some fun in the sun at Yas WaterWorld.
We started our journey from Dubai and reached Yas Island Rotana in about 1.15 hour. We chose to stay in a Premium suite (priced at AED 655++) as its comfortable for a family, the king size bed is spacious, it has a separate living room and stunning view of the Yas Marina Circuit and the swimming pool.The hotel is conveniently located on the spectacular Yas Island, a few minutes away from Yas Marina, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld, Yas Mall and Yas Beach. After check in on Friday, we enjoyed our time by the pool side before heading to Bodylines Fitness and Wellness Club for an amazing massage.
I opted for 4 hands Aromatherapy massage (priced at AED 500) , it is performed by two therapists who work simultaneously to double the effect of a usual treatment . It was my very first time to try this treatment and it was spectacular.I highly recommend it. In the evening we had Iftar at Choices restaurant ; the all-day dining restaurant. The buffet was widespread with Arabic cuisine and some International dishes. Iftar is priced at AED 198 for an adult and AED 99 for kids above 6 years. The best part of the Iftar was dessert buffet serving a large selection of Arabic, modern and traditional pastries and cakes. Uma Ali and Cheese Kunafa were utterly delicious. I never miss a chance to have Uma Ali ; it is one of the best Arabic delicacy. I have heard a lot about their Indian restaurant called Rangoli but unfortunately it was closed so I guess another reason to head back to Yas Island.
On Saturday after smooth check out we left for Yas WaterWorld with family, friends and our kids. For Ramadan they are running a special offer for AED 95 for UAE residents on valid Emirates ID. It was hot but didn’t realize it with all the fun we had. It’s a must visit if you haven’t been there as yet. It was my first time and I loved each and every ride. I really don’t mind going back for another lovely weekend!
