Miral, Abu Dhabi’s curator of experiences, in collaboration with Warner Bros., announced The WB Abu Dhabi, located on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island, the first ever Warner Bros. themed hotel, part of Curio Collection by Hilton, has officially opened its doors to guests. The hotel allows guests to see WB stories and characters brought to life through hospitality experiences.
“This is yet another great moment for us, with The WB Abu Dhabi hotel opening on Yas Island, further positioning it as a top global destination for leisure, entertainment and business,” says HE Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, chairman, Miral. “We are very proud of our long-standing partnership with both Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment and Hilton, bringing world firsts and global hospitality offerings and experiences to Abu Dhabi.”
Featuring more than 400 curated images and film and TV props, guests at the world’s first Warner Bros. hotel can see Warner Bros.’ history and library of productions at every touchpoint from arrival to check-out. While dining in one of five restaurants on the property, the piano from “Westworld,” the HBO science fiction TV show, plays. Visitors can stroll through the lobby or admire 360-degree city and sea views alongside props and costumes from Warner Bros. films and TV shows. Kids and families can ring up Looney Tunes characters for a room service treat brought to them by Bugs Bunny.
The WB Abu Dhabi is located adjacent to Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, the world's largest indoor theme park, which features six lands, including DC's Metropolis and Gotham City, Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch and Warner Bros.
