First ever Warner Bros Hotel opens in Abu Dhabi

The WB™ Abu Dhabi, located on Yas Island, is the first ever Warner Bros. themed hotel, part of Curio Collection by Hilton, and has officially opened its doors to guests.

You'll get to see your favourite stories and characters brought to life through unique hospitality experiences, including over 400 curated images, film and TV props.

The hotel offers a full immersive experience with the WB Brand as you stroll through the lobby and listen to the piano from Westworld, the hit HBO science fiction TV show, as it plays a familiar tune - with no human in sight!

Your kids can ring up one of their favourite Looney Tunes characters for a room service treat brought to them by the Wascally Wabbit, Bugs Bunny himself.

Your experience with the the WB Abu Dhabi hotel will begin as you pull up to the doors and are greeted by digital screens that span the height of the building, playing over 35 different pieces of original content created for the hotel. Before entering the hotel, check out the iconic “Friends” fountain, or snap a pic with the all-new Batmobile from the upcoming film, The Batman.

As you enter the lobby, you'll be drawn to the hotel’s uniquely designed lobby columns as they show clips from WB movies and TV shows. A spectacular Living Archive (at the spiral staircase) also resides in the lobby and will house an evolving collection of items dedicated to history of WB’s role in entertainment. It will showcase original films and a number of Warner Bros. props such as Cowboy boots from the 1956 film Giant, worn by James Dean, Michael Keaton’s cowl from 1989 film, Batman, original drawing from The Great Gatsby and lots more.

Three themes have inspired the guestroom artwork in the 257 rooms. The first theme, “From Script to Screen,” highlights standout moments from Warner Bros.’ movies and shows and documents the journey from the written page to the final shot. The second theme, “Artist Confidential,” celebrates a variety of talent in front of and behind the camera in some of Warner Bros.’ favorite productions. The third theme, “The Vault” features rarely seen images from Warner Bros.’ most memorable archives.

There's a broad range of food and beverage offerings featuring five dining options catering to both adults and children. Craft Services, located in the lobby lounge, offers a relaxing coffee break after a busy day.

Sidekicks is the perfect family friendly place for socialising and interacting and boasts an international menu.

If you're lounging by the pool, The Matinee provides a casual dining option for guests of all ages, complete with a dive-in pool theatre and Mediterranean menu.

Additionally, if you are looking for a more sophisticated dining experience, you can visit The Director’s Club, the hotel's meatery where charcoal ovens, perfectly aged cuts, and a menu selection of dishes inspired to reflect the movie scene setting and supporting the whole cast, serve the mature palate.

The Overlook, is a lounge with a relaxing infinity pool and 360-degree city, theme park and sea views.

For younger guests, the Kid’s Club is a playful space designed to bring Warner Bros.’ characters to life.
