Built on its own private island—the seahorse-shaped Jumeira Bay—Bulgari Resort Dubai is impeccably designed with the same attention to detail and quality that distinguishes the Italian jeweler’s coveted creations. The resort’s understated, low-rise architecture stands out amidst the sea of skyscrapers that comprise the ever-growing Dubai. The renowned architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel was the creative mastermind behind this 1.7 million-square-foot property, encompassing six residential buildings, 15 private mansions, 101 guestrooms and suites, 20 villas and Bulgari’s first-ever Marina and Yacht Club.
While the hotel pays homage to local Middle Eastern culture with its custom-designed brise soleil, the Bulgari maintains a luxe Italian ambience, featuring custom-built contemporary furniture, lavish cashmere blankets, walk-in wardrobes and silk walls with sketches of Bulgari’s crown jewels. All 101 rooms have a balcony with expansive sea, marina or skyline views (including the Burj Khalifa), and each bathroom has an oversized bathtub, separate shower and plentiful Bulgari bath products. The 20 exquisite seafront and skyline villas, each with a 24/7 private butler, rank among the most expensive accommodations in Dubai.
The resort caters to a variety of interests. Families will appreciate the two “Little Gems” kids’ clubs and extensive children’s programming, including treasure hunts, cooking classes, costume parties and more. Active travelers can enjoy water sports and cycling around the property. The resort also has six restaurants, including the omakase-only, nine-seat Hoseki, which means “gemstone” in Japanese and overlooks the entire Dubai skyline. The spacious spa comprises seven treatment rooms, a vitality pool, a beauty salon and a fitness center.
