Bulgari Resort & Residences Dubai
What We Love
- The views of Burj Khalifa from a cabana on the resort’s private beach
- The special child-sized Bulgari bath products in sensitive skin formulations
- The whole resort is wheelchair-accessible
What To Know
- Guests can check-in from their rooms—no need to stand at reception
- The only Bulgari Resort with a kids’ club, it’s all very family friendly, with services from babysitting to kids’ cooking classes
- It’s touted as the most expensive hotel in Dubai, but that applies only to the private villas; room prices are comparable to other five-star hotels
Where most Dubai hotels reach up into the sky, the new Bulgari Resort spreads itself out luxuriously, over a stretch of sandy private beach on Jumeirah Bay Island. No building is higher than four floors, and there’s plenty of privacy. Each of the rooms and suites comes with its own balcony, a deep bathtub with separate shower, and a walk-in closet. Space, here, is plentiful. We love the minibar hidden in a vintage-style trunk and the silk walls in the rooms, as well as the heritage Bulgari pieces pulled from the archives and displayed around the resort. The spa is suitably decadent, with an indoor swimming pool with spectacular sea views, (real) gold tiles, and heaps of features (ice fountain, rainforest showers, steam rooms, vitality pools) designed to get you feeling invigorated, soothed, or a combination of both, as fast as possible. And then there’s the Yacht Club, with its members’ lounge, outdoor pool and 50-berth harbor. Don’t forget your boat.
In the Area
The hotel has a prime spot on Jumeirah Bay, a seahorse-shaped, man-made island connected to the mainland via bridge. Although it feels like a resort – it’s possible to go days without leaving the hotel grounds and not feel like you’re missing out – the nightlife, restaurants and sights of Dubai are just a 15-minute drive away.
How to Get There
We stayed with our family at the Bulgari Resort. Wonderful staff, from the welcome through the whole stay we were surrounded by wonderful and helpful staff. Rooms are well designed with amenities.
Beds are very comfortable, gym well equipped. Nothing to complain.
There are of course more beautiful beaches in the world, but that’s another story.
A beautiful Premium ocean view of the yachts. Beautiful music, excellent service and delicious food. I would like to also personally thank Marjolein (from France) who has assisted us greatly whenever we needed help, well done and keep up the good work!
