Make sure your calendars are wide-open on December 7 as the newest addition to Bulgari's property portfolio, The Bulgari Resort & Residences Dubai will launch on Jumeirah Bay, the man-made, seahorse-shaped island built just off the coast of Jumeirah Beach Road.
Following in the footsteps of the iconic brand's Milan, Bali and London hotels, the resort will house 101 hotel rooms and suites as well as 20 private villas, all designed by renowned Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. Taking inspiration from the refinement and style of Bulgari's signature jewels the team created a signature space that blends the Mediterranean values and Gulf views of the hotel to an impeccable standard.
As you'd expect from a luxury label like Bulgari, every element of the hotel's interior has been hand-selected or custom-designed by the architects, with every inch made from the finest materials and furnished with Italian homewear imported from Europe.
Boasting five different categories of private villas, the resort will offer a new level of privacy for guests wanting an all-inclusive experience with options ranging from one to three bedroom villas all with a private pool, secluded outdoor space and personal butler service so you feel utterly spoiled at all times.
As if that wasn't enough, the space will also house a world-class spa with eight treatment rooms, and indoor pool and wellness center and a separate beach resort, La Spiaggla, which will offer private cabana's and an outdoor pool area.
If you're looking to make a day trip up to the island, you can also sample some of Italy's finest fare courtesy of Michelin starred chef Niko Romito, who will launch his signature restaurant Il Ristorante by Niko Romito as the resort's flagship dining destination, and stopping by chocolate haven Il Cioccolato for dessert on your way home.
The final five-star touch comes in the form of the world's first Bulgari Marina & Yacht Club, which will also house its own pool, restaurant, kids club and state-of-the-art ballroom.
We're officially counting down the days...
