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

Overview

Italian design meets Emirati decadence in this splurge-tastic hotel, with its own private beach and the first Bulgari Yacht Club

The Lowdown

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. The Dubai Mall, one of the world’s largest, sells everything from Cartier to Cavalli, but there’s also an aquarium, a movie theater, and an ice-skating rink. Book tickets in advance for trips to the observation deck at the top of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building at 160 stories. Dubai’s Persian Quarter is a wonderful place to wander for an afternoon; make sure to stop into the Arabian Tea House while you’re there for a traditional multi-dish breakfast and a fresh juice in the airy courtyard.

one of the best brunches in dubai. the food was very tasty. I would definitely recommend trying the tiramisu, especially if you love dessert. After finishing our meal we went to bed around the pool which is wonderful and comfortable. fantastic service there also continued. I would like to thank Berk especially the team leader who works there. We certainly want to come again. Thanks bvlgari yacht club

Indulgence to the max. The Bvlgari Dubai perfectly combines the virtues of their brand with the pleasures of life by the beach.
In the Niko Romito Restaurant you will find that Alfonso is an Italian style host at it’s best.
And last, but far from least is the VIP service of BERK at the Yacht Club Pool. The man just has the touch.
Stay there for dinner too and Illaria won‘t disappoint you. Her cooking skills are magic.

In the beginning we had one or two issues, but the restaurant manager Carlo Bevilacqua countered like a boss.

I wholeheartedly recommend this place for your stay in the UAE.
