In December 2013 we took a trip to Abu Dhabi, to spend Christmas with Gaz, our son.
We stayed at the (and this is not a word I use idly) ‘iconic’ Yas Viceroy hotel, which straddles the Yas Marina Formula One circuit.
This was the panorama from our room, looking out over the Yas Marina.
And this was the view looking back at the hotel from the Marina.
Another panorama, looking out over Turn 18 of the Yas Marina circuit.
The pool, on the roof of the ‘Marina’ wing, where we spent most mornings.
And the Skylite Bar – on the roof of the other wing – where we spent most evenings.
Christmas dinner was enjoyed in the hotel’s Italian Restaurant.
And an early morning view from our room, with aircraft heading into Abu Dhabi airport.
