Bvlgari Resort & Residences Dubai
Super-luxe yet low-key, Bvlgari Resort & Residences Dubai brings Italian style to the UAE’s most cosmopolitan city. Chic with an upscale Mediterranean seaside feel, this low-rise property with its striking exterior designed to impress stands out in sharp contrast to Dubai’s many towering skyscrapers.
The Style Traveller and fashionista, Bonnie Rakhit who went to check out (and check-in to) Bvlgari for Best at Travel! She loved the understated elegance of this sleek resort where the stunning views, pools, restaurants, in-house chocolatier and marina provide more than enough reason never to leave. Read what she had to say about her stay, here.
This exclusive urban oasis sits on Jumeira Bay Island, a man-made seahorse-shaped island connected to central Dubai by a 300-metre bridge. It may be just a 20 minute drive from the world’s tallest tower – the iconic Burj Khalifa – but feels like a peaceful hideaway.
The ultimate in luxury holidaying! Delivering timeless glamour, there’s an indoor swimming pool inlaid with gold mosaics, silk-fabric wallpaper and cashmere blankets in the rooms, suites and villas and dining options overseen by a Michelin-star chef.
What To Do & Where To Eat
This is a place to sit back and relax, whether it’s at the superlative 1,7000 square metre spa with its oriental hammam, soothing vitality pool and aroma steam rooms, or beside the cabana and palm tree-lined swimming pool at the Marina and Yacht Club – a world first for Bvlgari. If you feel like swapping chill out time for activity, there’s yoga, boxing, pilates and strength training at the Workshop Gymnasium. The stand-out dining option for us is Il Ristorante, a fine-dining Italian restaurant overlooking the marina and overseen by Niko Romito a three-star Michelin chef. The seafood-focused La Spiaggia is a more relaxed affair – and is where the exclusive beach club comes alive at night, lit up by lanterns and candlelight.
Our Favourite Room
We’ve picked the Bvlgari Suite for its incredible wrap-around balcony with incredible views of the famed Dubai skyline. You’ll also find a spacious living area – complete with huge library and mini bar hidden away in a vintage-style luggage case – and marble bathroom where the two-person Jacuzzi comes with a view.
