hear the powerful sound of water all around and smell the distinct scent of dew

and drifted into thought, "Where am I, is this really happening?"

- May 23, 2013 - 11:02:06 PM
Hospitality venues like the Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi are far and few. When I
think on it further there is nothing comparable to it. The Yas Viceroy
Abu Dhabi is a Xanadu of surreal luxury, set within architecture that
takes you out of your everyday and reminds you to live. Earlier this
month, I had the pleasure of staying for two unforgettable nights during
my seven night stay in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
The Yas Viceroy is located on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, UAE. The United
Arab Emirates, a former British protectorate, now an independent Arab
country along the Arabian Gulf is made up of seven states (Emirates).
These states are famed for their wealth, and iconic architectural
projects, particularly Abu Dhabi’s neighbor Dubai. The island is a short
30 minute drive to Abu Dhabi’s city centre...
