Floating upon a private, seahorse-shaped island, accessible from the mainland by bridge, Bvlgari Resort Dubai will impress you from the moment you arrive. The hotel's facade is embellished with white steel sunscreens, designed to reflect the structure of coral, while giant windows and glass features absorb endless natural daylight.
Once inside, this Middle Eastern bolthole will continue to leave you overwhelmed with its opulence. Although there may only be 101 rooms and suites, no detail has been spared in making this resort feel like an entire world of Italian-inspired elegance. Every room has a lavish marble bathroom, spacious walk-in wardrobe and a balcony or terrace to soak up the spectacular view, while 20 standout villas showcase private swimming pools and attentive butler service; what more could you ask for? The height of luxury is the resort's Bvlgari Villa. Sprawling over 540-square-metres, you'll feel like you've arrived at your home-away-from-home as you explore the villa's countless features, from the cosy cinema room to the opulent oval swimming pool.
Echoing the rest of the resort's superior style, dining has a distinct Bvlgari flair. From Italian-inspired Il Ristorante, led by three-Michelin-starred chef Niko Romito, to the world's first Bvlgari Yacht Club restaurant which overlooks a 46-boat harbour, there are a choice of incredible venues to tempt your palate. Head to the hotel's upper floors and you'll find Japanese jewel, Hoseki, serving incredible Asian dishes in an intimate and interactive setting. Don't forget to sample a classic apéritif before dinner at Il Bar, the perfect spot to watch the sunset across the scenic Arabian Gulf.
When you aren't busy exploring the seemingly limitless city attractions of Dubai, the hotel has plenty to indulge the senses. For spa seekers, the 1,700 square-metre BVLGARI Spa has a wealth of innovative treatments to relish, from massages and facials, to longer wellness journeys, which combine powerful rituals and locally inspired ingredients to achieve the ultimate rejuvenation. If you're hoping to keep in shape during your luxury holiday, take advantage of the signature, fully equipped Workshop Gymnasium, or utilise the expert Performance Specialists, who can build bespoke fitness plans tailored to your needs.
Whether you're savouring the sun-soaked atmosphere around the lively Yacht Club pool or prefer to while away the hours hidden in La Limonaia - the secret lemon-tree garden - with an indulgent ice cream; Bvlgari Hotels & Resorts have put their all into this decadent Dubai haunt.
