Miral, Abu Dhabi’s leading curator of luxury experiences, in collaboration with Warner Bros announced that The WB Abu Dhabi Hotel on Yas Island, operated by Hilton under the Curio Collection brand, will open its doors to guests on 11 November 2021.
Featuring one of the finest collections of Warner Bros. archives, guests at the world’s first Warner Bros hotel will be welcomed to a journey of discovery through film and television, enjoying Warner Bros.’ rich history and library of timeless productions at every touchpoint from arrival to check-out. While dining in one of five restaurants on the property, guests can enjoy as the piano from “Westworld” plays a familiar tune.
Visitors can stroll through the lobby or indulge in the 360-degree city and sea views while admiring their favorite props and costumes from Warner Bros. movies and television shows. Also, kids and families can ring up one of their favorite Looney Tunes characters for a room service treat brought to them by the Wascally Wabbit, Bugs Bunny himself.
“We are proud to be launching another first with the opening of the only Warner Bros. hotel in the world. This new story-driven hospitality experience is set to excite guests from all over the world, further reinforcing Yas Island’s position as a global entertainment, leisure and business destination and supporting Abu Dhabi’s ambition to attract greater numbers of local and international tourists. We are delighted to be strengthening our partnership with Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment and Hilton with this unique one-of-a-kind experience.”
Guests of The WB Abu Dhabi hotel will be greeted by digital screens that span the height of the building, playing original content created for the hotel. The entrance of the hotel awaits with the iconic fountain from the sitcom ‘Friends’. Guests will be then drawn to the hotel’s uniquely designed lobby columns. As guests continue their journey, the mesmerizing experience is further enriched with guest room corridors displaying a curated gallery of artwork.
The hotel’s 257 rooms are furnished with touches that tie to the legacy of rich storytelling that makes Warner Bros unique. The curated guestroom artwork will be inspired by three themes. The first theme, “From Script to Screen,” highlights standout moments from Warner Bros’ movies and the process from script to final shot. The second theme, “Artist Confidential,” celebrates a variety of talent in front of and behind the camera in some of Warner Bros’ favorite productions. The third theme, “The Vault” showcases never-before-seen images from Warner Bros’ most memorable archives.
Pam Lifford, President of WarnerMedia Global Brands and Experiences, noted, “Opening the doors to the first-ever Warner Bros. branded hotel is a moment that we have long dreamed of, and it’s truly magnificent. The Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment team and our incredible partners at Miral and Hilton designed this with fans in mind and have curated an outstanding hospitality experience. The WB Abu Dhabi truly is the perfect experience to enjoy and relax while visiting Warner Bros. World right next door!”
