THE F1 HIGH LIFE

With fast cars, high fashion, super yachts and plenty of bubbly, the F1 weekend is the perfect excuse to pull out all the stops. Yas Viceroy is offering the Ultimate Bucket List Experience, allowing the jet setters and glitterati to indulge in a four-day foray into a deluxe front-row experience complete with fine dining, star-studded concerts and racing drama, all set in luxurious surroundings. Priced at AED120,000, get the black card ready for an unforgettable weekend of high-octane celebrations.

The exclusive package has been designed to ensure that guests enjoy every element of luxury with a stay in an Island Suite, offering panoramic views of the track and marina.

With restaurants on the Amalfi Coast and Mayfair’s fashionable Dover Street, two-Michelin starred chef Antonio Mellino and his team will be bringing the fresh flavours of Southern Italy for a sophisticated gourmet experience.

Meanwhile, as the sun sets for the final race, guests can pick a spot on the terrace at Kazu to watch as the chequered flag goes down, whilst tucking into the Omakase menu alongside house beverages and sake. Inspired by all the action, thrill-seekers can enjoy their own adrenaline-fuelled adventure, taking a trip to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi or Yas Waterworld. Finally, for stylish celebrations that go beyond the racing, head to the star-studded post-race concerts to watch A-list performers before heading back to Yas Viceroy for spectacular parties with world-renowned DJs and party into the early hours. ✤
