Schools are closed for summer holidays and we have a four-day long weekend. So, we make a staycation plan and decide to make a reservation at Crowne Plaza Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

Crowne Plaza Yas Island has a gorgeous setting and it overlooks the golf course and the sea. Its a contemporary and sleek hotel efficiently managed by the InterContinental Hotels Group or IHG.
As it was the Eid weekend, the hotel was crowded and there was a long queue for check-in. We liked the fact that the staff were super organized and efficient, and within a few minutes our check-in was done and we were handed our room card.
The lobby of the hotel has trendy and modern decor with sublime lighting, colorful murals and vibrant carpets. It has a friendly and welcoming vibe.

Everyone’s favorite spot was the balcony, which had a marvelous view of the sea, golf course and the swimming pool. The balcony had couple of chairs and table, I enjoyed my time sitting in the balcony and soaking up the view.
As our welcome platter, we were offered sweet treats and fruits, which was highly appreciated by my family. I loved the personalized welcome card, which showed that the hotel really cared about their guests and they wanted us to have a great stay.

The wellness centre has a calm and soothing atmosphere and I instantly felt relaxed. I felt refreshed and rejuvenated after the massage. Prior reservations are recommended for the visit at Senses Wellness Centre.
