The Yas Viceroy, formerly known as The Yas Hotel, has redesigned its lobby and lounge area to reflect the brand’s essence: warm, inviting, classic and modern.
The reception area has more space and offers separate welcome desks to cater to increased personal interactions with guests. “We have spent the last year introducing the Viceroy brand in terms of the level of service, programming and light design implementations,” says Anton Bawab Regional President of the Viceroy Hotel Group. “The lobby and lounge represent a true introduction of the Viceroy vibe and brand essence. We have transformed the space, completely redesigning the layout and furniture, layering in music which creates a lounge atmosphere bringing a true sense of the Viceroy brand. The arrival process is inviting, warm allowing our colleagues to offer a welcoming and seamless experience to our guests.”
The adjacent lounge is now centralized incorporating an architectural language which provides scale to the space; enlivens activity and creates a more social atmosphere. The newly added library, a signature Viceroy feature, has been designed to offer a quiet area, segregated from the buzz of the lobby activity. It offers an eclectic mix of books on artistic and cultural topics to captivate guests within a refined and elegant space.
“The main focus of the lounge refurbishment was to capture elements of the Viceroy brand personality. We wanted to enhance the guest experience by creating a social atmosphere around the lounge, promoting a dynamic environment. Whether a guest is staying with us for leisure, to enjoy an innovative culinary experience or for a social or corporate gathering,” states Heiner Werdeling General Manager of Yas Viceroy. “We want to create an engaging experience and make guests feel truly unique.”
Sumptuous, warm and enlightening, this new design seems faraway from the stark white awkward space provided for by the former Yas Hotel. A change which surely enlivens the space, we hope the new Yas Viceroy will gain back attention to this exceptional architectural structure.
