  1. Yas Island's #1 development under construction right now is the SeaWorld indoor theme park adjacent to IKEA:

  2. Miral, the developer of Yas Island, is a very unique company as it is not bound by the necessity to enter into profitable ventures. Funds are literally unlimited, guaranteed by the government, and serve the wider purpose of putting Abu Dhabi on the global map. None of their theme parks, water parks, resorts and malls are capable of ever breaking even or designed as sustainable businesses. They live and operate in a dream world and can't serve as a role model for any other industry player.

    Short update on dates for Hilton's biggest projects.

    The 641-room Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island Resort is due to open in Q4, 2022 and will be in the Yas Bay, a 3-kilometre stretch that is anticipated to become one of the region’s most iconic and vibrant waterfront destinations. The resort’s facilities will include a multi-purpose conference centre, seven dining outlets and an innovative urban beach concept with an infinity pool suspended above the Arabian Gulf. The resort is also near the 18,000-capacity Yas Arena, a multi-purpose indoor arena designed to host events including sporting competitions, major cultural performances, concerts and MICE activities.

    This masterplan shows the correct locations of the Warner Bros and SeaWorld theme parks, but otherwise it is not very up to date. Someone has a more recent one?
