Latest in Italian luxury living and accommodations opening on Jumeira Bay Island
Bulgari Hotel and Resorts proudly adds a fifth destination to the collection: on 7th December 2017 the Bulgari Resort Dubai, a glorious urban oasis surrounded by the sea, will open its doors on Jumeira Bay.
Styled with European-inspired gardens and pools and blending Mediterranean landscaping with the natural settings of the shores of the Arabian Gulf, every facet of the design was hand-selected by Italian architecture firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel.
The Bulgari Resort and Residences will become the emirate’s priciest hotel according to a top executive from the luxury brand. Bulgari’s executive vice president Silvio Ursini says the room rates will be “by far the highest in the market”, and added, “We think the facilities here, the beach and vicinity will justify that, but also the size of the rooms which will be very generous.”
Among the features will be an exclusive sushi restaurant on the hotel’s top floor with a capacity for just eight guests and six independent restaurants located around the resort’s marina promenade.
To become Dubai’s most expensive hotel the property would need to surpass rates at the iconic Burj Al Arab down the coast, which start at Dhs10,450 ($2,845) a night for a deluxe room in February.
The 1.7-million-square-foot development which includes the hotel, will feature 101 rooms and suites and 20 residential villas with road access and private pools. Features include a vast and incomparable Spa, the Il Ristorante – Niko Romito, and the world’s first Bulgari Marina and Yacht Club, the Bulgari Resort Dubai is set to become the destination of choice for visitors seeking the solitude of an island escape, the residential feeling of a private house and the comfort of being just minutes from the heart of the vibrant city and its cultural attractions.
Food and beverage concepts at the hotel will include the brand’s signature Bulgari Bar and Restaurant serving Italian cuisine, a more casual Bulgari café, branch of the brand’s gourmet Il Ciocollato chocolate store and a pool and beach bar.
In the buildings surrounding the marina there will be 165 serviced apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms, eight four-bedroom penthouses and 15 three-to-six-bedroom mansions.
As an owner of one of the residences, you’ll also get a 24-hour concierge, pools and fitness facilities, lush gardens, and complimentary membership to the world’s first Bulgari Marina and Yacht club (which will sit along the complex’s promenade).
All the properties have been designed by Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners, with Ursini describing the development as an “Italian marina village”.
The resort project is part of an agreement between Bulgari and Dubai holding company Meraas, which is separately selling 50 mansion plots on the seahorse shaped island.
The Dubai resort will join four other Bulgari-branded developments across the world, which include hotels in Milan, Bali and London, and eateries in Tokyo. There are also plans to open accommodation in China and Moscow in the very near future.
