Bulgari Resort and Residences Dubai

A Mediterranean dream along Dubai’s coast
Driving across the 980-foot bridge to the seahorse-shaped Jumeirah Bay feels like you’ve left behind the busy commercial hub of Dubai for a charming island retreat, quietly tucked away along its coastline.

Here, Bulgari Resort and Residences Dubai stands like a gem with Arabescato marble walls that glisten from under the shadows of a coral-patterned brise-soleil, welcoming you to live out your beachfront Italian getaway fantasies even as you enjoy spectacular views of the Arabian Gulf.

The resort offers 101 sumptuous accommodations, as well as 20 villas ideal for families and groups. Within the complex are The Bulgari Spa, a fitness center, an exclusive beach club, Bulgari’s first Marina and Yacht Club and six residential buildings with sea-facing apartments and private mansions.

The Dubai hotel’s five world-class dining venues serve fine international cuisine generously topped with legendary Italian hospitality.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • As expected of the Bulgari brand, the attention to detail in the architectural design — the work of renowned Italian firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel — is a highlight. The use of premium materials, such as Italian onyx, travertine marble, gray Vicenza stone and Shanxi black granite, is prevalent, their incorporation inspired by the resort’s Middle Eastern surroundings.
  • The property’s location on Jumeirah Bay is befitting of a serene Italian hideaway with plenty of solitude for those who seek it, yet is close enough to reach Dubai’s tourist spots, shopping, dining and nightlife in less than 30 minutes.
  • Unwind with therapeutic facial and body treatments at the sanctuary-like Bulgari Spa. Arrive early to use wet facilities such as the hammam, steam, sauna, ice fountains and vitality pools, or relax in the indoor swimming pool, which provides breathtaking sea views through floor-to-ceiling windows.
  • For the ultimate luxury escape, book the lavish 5,800-square-foot Bulgari Villa, which features a private beach, a fully equipped bar, a home cinema with a 65-inch screen and a spacious garden terrace with a large oval pool surrounded by cabanas and Arabian-inspired water features.
  • At the nautical-themed Bulgari Yacht Club, sample Mediterranean-inspired seafood specialties at the Italian restaurant and take in spectacular marina vistas as you relax in the sophisticated members lounge or at the outdoor pool and bar. The family-friendly venue also has the Little Gems club for children.

The Rooms

  • Each of the resort’s spacious rooms and suites comes with a terrace overlooking the Arabian Gulf, a private sandy beachfront or the city’s glittering skyline. Rooms are bright and bathed in natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows.
  • Each accommodation was designed to feel like a contemporary and comfortable home-away-from-home with careful thought put into each element, including Moroccan wool rugs from the Atlas Mountains, Bulgari lamps to the tastefully crafted trunk-style minibars.

The Restaurants

The focus is on authentic and simple Italian fare prepared with quality ingredients. Try specialties like antipasto all’Italiana and veal Milanese or opt for the set or sharing menus.
