An oasis in the city
Set on its own private island, the Bvlgari Resort Dubai is a chic haven that offers a luxurious escape from the city
All of the hotel’s 101 rooms have a balcony with marina, sea or skyline views, but if you’re looking to splash out, splurge on a villa. With a private butler, pool overlooking the beach, plush Italian furnishings and a walk-in wardrobe, it doesn’t really get much more luxury than this.
Head to the hotel’s spa and zen out with Bvlgari’s three-hour signature treatment, the Royal Lulur, or relax in the 41-square-metre Afyon marble hammam, inspired by traditional Turkish design.
For a relaxed lunch, head to the terrace of the Yacht Club. Dine on seafood delicacies including fried calamari and marinated fish while overlooking the club’s swimming pool and marina. If you’re after something a little more fancy, grab a pair of heels and head to Il Ristorante, the concept created by Michelin-starred chef Niko Romito. Dig into linguine with basil and pesto and recodified versions of marinated beef carpaccio, with the finest Italian ingredients.
