The Yas is one of those hotels that is, without question, pure James Bond. For a start, it hovers partly over a Formula 1 racing track – not something I’m particularly interested in, but it does make for an interesting talking point. If you’re absolutely loaded, you can also turn up here in your yacht before the race starts and have some time on land before heading off.
In terms of interiors, Yas hotel features a lot of curved walls, clean gleaming surfaces and effortless minimalism. At the same time, it retains the feeling of being comfortable and functional. A rare thing indeed.
