A shimmering jewel set on a seahorse-shaped island in Jumeira Bay, Bvlgari Resort Dubai, brings Mediterranean style to the Middle East. Surrounded by ocean views and home to the first Bvlgari Yacht Club & Marina, its nautical spirit inspires the Resort’s design, making it an oasis of luxury minutes from the mainland. Situated on the exclusive Jumeira Bay Island, carved into a seahorse shape and adjoined by a 300 meter/985 feet bridge to central Dubai coastline, the sunny property is a true ’city resort’ for visitors and residents alike. Bvlgari Resort Dubai prides itself on delivering the highest standard of bespoke services to every single guest.

The Design - Bvlgari Resort Dubai draws inspiration from its ocean setting to create a sparkling oasis of nautical-inspired luxury. Conceived of and executed by the Italian architecture firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, it captures a particularly Italian sensibility, melding Mediterranean charm with Middle Eastern embellishment. The 1.4-million-square-foot Resort exists in harmony with its stunning location on Jumeira Bay so that every facet is designed to complement the sea views, sunshine, and shimmering skyline that lies just beyond the bay. The standout motif is a coral-like sunshade that wraps around the façade of the building. Other distinctive maritime touches abound, like the oak wood planks that recall the deck of a ship. Like a jewel, the façade is transparent in parts so that it seems to rise out of the ocean, all of a piece with its magical marine setting. The color palette is light and airy to leverage the gorgeous natural light, with signature Bvlgari marble and soaring windows gracing rooms, suites, and public areas. Black granite and travertine appear throughout the Resort, a distinctively Italian design choice carried through by contemporary furniture from Italy’s best-known designers.
Comprised of 101 rooms and suites, as well as 20 Bulgari pool villas with skyline and sea view, the Resort offers a full range of amenities, such as an Italian contemporary cuisine restaurant, an exclusive Japanese restaurant on the top floor, an all-day café, and Bulgari Il Cioccolato boutique. Guests can also enjoy the 1,700 square-meter/18,300 square-feet spa with hammam, indoor pool, fitness center, and beauty salon with hairdressers. To add relish to the guest’s stay, the complex comprises a private beach with a Beach Club and an outdoor swimming pool, a private marina. The ballroom with views over the sea and a concept store complete the luxury experience.
Dining - Echoing the elegant design of the original Bvlgari Hotel Milano, Il Ristorante – Niko Romito at The Bvlgari Resort Dubai celebrates the rich heritage of Italy.
