With its head-turning construction by renowned Italian architects Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, first impressions at The Bulgari Resort & Residences recall Mediterranean Europe as you cross the 300 metre bridge from downtown Dubai to Jumeirah Bay Island. Get a little closer and the fine pattern work and coral motifs of the white facade reveal a masterclass in exterior design. And it’s this eye for detail that will define your Middle East holiday at this resort. From the Arabian hospitality from check-in to check-out, to the silver service dining at gourmet restaurants, Bulgari guests are always the centre of attention.
Bulgari Resort & Residences location
The much-revered manmade island of Jumeirah Bay makes a superb setting for this urban oasis. Bulgari Resort & Residences Dubai is nestled into the curve of a horse-shoe shaped marina, all yacht-club glamour and exclusive portside charm. And despite being just two minutes from Jumeirah Beach Road (and affording spectacular panoramic views of the city skyline beyond), Bulgari Resort Dubai still retains an ambiance of seclusion on the doorstep of the big city. Centrally located enough to easily explore Dubai’s famous dining, shopping, museums and family attractions, yet with a quiet atmosphere away from the mainland, it really is the best of both worlds in terms of location.
Things to do at The Bulgari Resort & Residences Dubai
The coastal village feel of Bulgari Resort & Residences Dubai belies its scale. At 158,000 square feet and comprising 101 rooms and suites plus 20 Bvlgari villas, this is no small resort. Yet at no point does it feel overpowering. There’s plenty to do here, whether you want to test your sea legs with a boat cruise or just fly and flop on the private beach. Party people can up their beach-going game at La Spiaggia – one of Dubai’s most exclusive new beach clubs –, while design fans can admire the iconic oval-shaped, freestanding bar at Il Bar before perusing the signature cocktails. Also, don’t miss the mosaic-adorned outdoor pool, 1,700sqm spa & hammam, beauty salon and fitness studio.
