Miral appoints Hilton for WB hotel


The WB Abu Dhabi, the first Warner Bros-branded hotel, will be operated and managed by Hilton under its Curio Collection by Hilton brand.

The company will also manage the serviced residences on the same site, through DoubleTree by Hilton. 

Chief portfolio officer at Miral, BR Kiran, said: “Hilton is a globally recognised partner and we are honoured to be partnering with them to bring the Curio Collection by Hilton and DoubleTree by Hilton brands to Abu Dhabi for the first time. This supports our strategy and vision of creating unforgettable experiences for every guest on Yas Island, while increasing the diversity of hospitality options available to them.

“We are confident that residents and visitors alike will welcome the diverse and flexible range of new accommodation options, whilst enjoying the unmatched experiences and unique attractions available to them on Yas Island.”

VP of Development – MEA, at Hilton, Carlos Khneisser, said: “We are proud to be partnering with Miral on these two new hotels which will see us introduce two new brands to Abu Dhabi.  The WB Abu Dhabi, which will be part of Hilton’s Curio Collection is a magnificent example of the sort of unique guest experiences we look for with our Curio Collection, while DoubleTree by Hilton Yas Island Residences continues the successful growth of this brand in the UAE.

“Miral has a clear vision to develop Yas Island into a global destination and we look forward to being a part of this transformation.”
