Since its opening in November 2014, Yas Mall, Aldar’s flagship retail development, become one of the most popular shopping and retail destinations in the Gulf. With its close proximity to the airport and seven luxury hotels, Yas Mall offers a plethora of activities and entertainment for all ages and interests, adding to the existing iconic attractions on Yas Island, including Ferrari World, Yas Marina Circuit, Yas Links and Yas Waterworld.
In just over one month since opening, the mall has welcomed an array of visitors during the 2014 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend, followed by landmark celebrations such as the UAE’s 43rd National Day. The mall is now positioned as an integral part of the capital’s tourist map, representative of the important role shopping and leisure plays in the UAE’s vibrant lifestyle. That said, Yas Mall hopes to attract over 20 million visitors in its first full year of operating and with such rising popularity there’s much potential for this indeed!
The mall offers a spacious design filled with natural light with an abundance of open spaces. It is a mall of firsts, offering the UAE’s first Lego Store, and the first 4Dx Vox Cinemas, Geant Hypermarket and Cheese Cake Factory in Abu Dhabi. It also houses the largest Debenhams department store outside of the UK. Visitors can spend a day exploring 370 of the most desirable retail, F&B brands and entertainment offerings, the majority of which are open, or will open in early 2015, all within easy reach of the Capital and the Abu Dhabi International Airport. Highlights include Zara, Nike, Adidas, Fun Works, Hamleys, Go Sport, Jamba Juice and Angelina Café.
An especially family-friendly mall, there is a two-storey wide FunWorks with a focus on educational play, a Build-A-Bear Workshop and even a children’s cinema and play area that can be rented for private parties.
