Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Bulgari Hotel Dubai
What it is
A Mediterranean-inspired stunner on Jumeirah Bay, with 101 hotel rooms, 20 pool villas, a Bvlgari spa and the brand’s first marina and yacht club.
What it isn't
Phoning it in. You’ll notice every inch of the place is outfitted in ultra-luxe finishings and furniture, all made in Italy.
What we think
There is no such thing as standard-issue at Bvlgari Resort Dubai. Starter “Superior Rooms” are, indeed, superior in every way, from their enormous floor plans (beginning at 592 square feet) to their private balconies and megawatt interiors befitting Bvlgari superfan Elizabeth Taylor. It’s well worth upgrading to a Junior Suite; they’re equipped with showstopping views of Dubai’s otherworldly cityscape and the glimmering turquoise Arabian Gulf, not to mention a plush living space for whiling away the hours in between exploits. (And what exploits they are: curated experience at the resort include desert safaris in search of gazelles and oryx, and private personal shopping tears through Dubai International Financial Centre for the full Elizabeth Taylor experience.
You're here because
Service is truly topnotch. Each and every guest is pampered with 24-hour butlers, shoe shines, and even packing and unpacking services.
Set overlooking the ocean, the 18,000-square-foot Bvlgari Spa is nothing short of transcendent—from the pool inspired by Caracalla Roman baths to the treatments. On your to-do list today? A purifying black soap treatment in the hammam, and an organic myrtle scrub and wrap. Bliss.
