When it opens at the Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi theme park, which made its world premiere this summer on Yas Island, the US$112 million (S$152 million)WB Abu Dhabi hotel will feature 250 rooms over eight levels, a spa and fitness club, rooftop pool and restaurants.

The theme park’s latest expansion is part of the United Arab Emirates’ tourism strategy aimed at turning Yas Island into a major resort and holiday destination in the region.

Construction on the hotel is nearly halfway complete.

Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi spans 1.65 million sq ft and features 29 rides and attractions across six immersive lands that include Metropolis, Gotham City, Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch and Warner Bros Plaza.

At the park, Batman, Scooby-Doo, Bugs Bunny, The Flintstones and Tweety bird co-exist together in one space.

Meanwhile, Paramount Pictures announced plans to open its first branded hotel in the Middle East in neighbouring Dubai next month.

The Paramount Hotel Dubai will feature suites themed after “The Godfather,” “Gatsby” and the actress Carol Lombard.
