The Bulgari Resort Dubai stretches across Jumeira Bay, a man-made island carved into the shape of a seahorse and adjoined by a bridge to the central Dubai coastline. Designed entirely by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, this exclusive resort has the ambience of a charming Mediterranean village, and includes its own marina and yacht club.
There are 101 rooms and suites, as well as 20 Bulgari villas each with a pool, garden and sea-view. The one, two and three-bedroom villas have stunning landscaped gardens and a temperature-controlled pool, just steps from the beachfront. Enjoy pacing around the bright interiors, full of organic textures and earthy tones, which instil the space with a cool, calming atmosphere. The master bedroom boasts a king size bed, as well as a luxurious bathroom with a sunken marble bathtub and separate shower cubicle. The villas also offer a fully equipped kitchenette and dining facilities.
Indulge at the range of eateries here, including Il Ristorante Niko Romito; the Il Café (open all day); the iconic, oval-shaped Il Bar; and La Spiaggia – an exclusive beach club with a private beach and a mosaicked outdoor pool. You can also enjoy the 1,700 square-metre spa with hammam, indoor pool, fitness centre and beauty salon. The private marina features 50 boat berths and the world’s first Bulgari Yacht Club with peerless views over the sea.
