Rotana Yas Island

Le Meridien Al Aqah in Fujairah was our summer destination last September 2010 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This summer we headed to the country's capital - Abu Dhabi. Mica was very excited although we didn't tell her where we're going since it is meant to be a surprise. My toddler is quite clever, it only mean outdoors for him when he is ask to put his sneakers on.

I did an almost last minute reservation at Rotana Yas Island, for a week I have been searching for a hotel with good summer rate that includes breakfast, but with so many options and not knowing where exactly those hotels are located in Abu Dhabi and how good they are, I hardly pick one.

In end up booking at Rotana, it is one of the many hotels in Yas Island. Currently, this hotel promos 2 free adult tickets to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi that is hard to resist (ooh temptations I know), I made my calculations and bet that it is indeed a good deal. Ferrari World tickets cost AED 225 for adults and AED165 for kids on regular admissions, that would mean paying only AED 260++ with breakfast. It is not bad after all eh?

I love the amber glow of the lobby

I requested for a king size bed (para kasya kami :D), the kids are used to co-sleeping. The kids stay for free if with two adults and below 7 years of age

complimentary tea and coffee 

Orange carpet and wall ornament gives the alley aglow

The hotel has 308 spacious rooms and suites designed with international flair to suit guests

Breakfast at Choices-they offer an array of ethnic cuisine, Asian and International

It would be nice to sit and chat over coffee but its too hot and humid outside
