Your stay at the Bulgari Resort Dubai awaits you. Dripping with sophistication and grandiosity, this is a trip that will surpass your every expectation. While it’s likely you’ll know a lot about such a world-renowned resort, we reckon there are a few exceptional Bulgari Resort Dubai facts that we can delight you with - from its Italian influence throughout its restaurant's menu to the exquisite details that have gone into crafting this hotel, comparable to making jewellery.

Here are 20 fun facts we bet you didn’t know about Bulgari Resort Dubai... 

1. Every single facet of the resort is designed to complement the sea views, the sunshine and the skyline

Like you would expect at all Bulgari hotels and resorts, luxury is everywhere. Italian architecture firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel has carefully considered every aspect of designing the resort. The whole resort blends Italian notes, Mediterranean charm, and Middle Eastern touches throughout. The design is heavily influenced by the sea, from its coral reef crown to the oak wood planks that make it resemble a ship. 

2. It has a unique location on a horseshoe stretch of coastline

This Bulgari Resort Dubai is a unique destination due to its exceptional location on a stretch of coastline on Jumeira Bay Island. It’s connected to the mainland by a 300-metre bridge, so you can still access the bright lights of the city but stay completely secluded on the exclusive resort when the mood takes you, too. 

Planning your next journey ?

Our expertise, worldwide connections, and the way we do things with a relentless drive means whatever your travels needs are, we can make it happen for you whenever, however, wherever and every time.

3. There is a super-exclusive Japanese restaurant

The restaurant Hōseki seats just nine people, so you must be quick to get a reservation. The minimalist setting is a unique Omakase experience with chef Masahiro Sugiyama. Dishes are created based on the preferences of those sitting at the table, so no two meals are ever the same. The intimate room overlooks the stunning Dubai skyline whilst you enjoy the best and freshest ingredients. 

4. Il Ristorante is home to three-starred Michelin chef Niko Romito

Niko Romito serves Italian fare in this romantic setting with dramatic black ceilings that look like you’re dining under the stars and raised banquettes that provide stunning views of the Arabian Coast.

One of Bulgari Resort Dubai's options is to sign up for The Beach Club. This gives you exclusive access to 14 private cabanas, the kid’s club called Little Gems, and the outdoor pool and beach bar. Beach Club passes give you access to a host of water sports, too. 

6. You can upgrade to a private villa

If you want a little more privacy and seclusion on your holiday, a villa is worth splashing out on. The villas impress with private pools, spacious rooms, and seating. It’s your very own oasis. 

7. Bulgari’s first-ever Yacht Club

If you’re feeling nautical, you’re in luck. The yacht club overlooks the harbour that homes 46 boats. Joining the exclusive Yacht Club gives you special access to the restaurant, which specialises in Italian fish cuisine. You can also join the member's lounge, outdoor pool and bar. 

8. You can dock up at the Marina

Whether you’re renting a yacht or have your own that you’re sailing around Dubai, there is no better resort to dock up at than the Bulgari Resort Dubai. You’ll have everything you need to keep sailing, plus you can play neighbours with some of the most spectacular boats in the world.  

9. There is a vitality pool inspired by the ancient Caracalla Roman Baths in the spa

This stunning spa dazzles with copper, gold, and teal tones. Skilled professionals will pamper you and invigorate your senses with an offering of facials, massages, body massages and the popular Hamman – sure to leave you feeling silky smooth. 

10. You can get married here

For the most elegant and luxurious of weddings, the Bulgari Resort provides the most stunning backdrop and venue. Say your vows in the beautiful gardens before taking to the ballroom for an evening of dancing and Italian dining. 

11. There are luxury boutiques available in the resort

For expensive Italian glamour, there is no need to step out of the resort. Bulgari Boutique has a wide range of jewellery and watches and other special accessories. There is also La Galleria which is described as a ‘trend lab.’ Here you will find a range of curated items from Dubai’s best-known artists and designers. 

12. There is an onsite chocolate boutique

Il Cioccolato is perfect for those with a sweet tooth. These signature chocolates are expertly crafted with unique flavours, perfect for taking home as a gift or souvenir – if you haven’t already scoffed them, that is.

13. Bulgari Resort Dubai is part of the Green Initiative

The resort is part of the ‘Give a Ghaf - Heritage Project’, which helps take action in desert cleaning and tree planting in the Al Wadi Nature Reserve. With this in mind, a key focus is on sustainability. For example, the key cards are biodegradable; there are energy-saving features throughout, solar-heated water, and so much more. 

14. You can indulge in some personal shopping

You can’t come to Dubai and not indulge in a spot of luxury shopping. Here, you get access to a helping hand (literally) to ensure your shopping experience is as seamless as possible. Plus, if you’re looking for private access to certain shops or galleries, Bulgari can cater to your every whim. 

15. You can book a private desert safari with a private chef

A more secluded desert adventure awaits thrill-seekers staying at The Bulgari. Spot the exotic desert wildlife such as the Arabian Oryx and even gazelles, and book a private camp where tailor-made activities will be laid on, to suit your requirements. You’ll even indulge in delectable fare prepared by a private chef for the ultimate setting.

16. Get a private tour of Abu Dhabi in a Maserati

Got a need for speed? You should consider the jewel in the Arabian Crown, Abu Dhabi, for a day out. Jump into a Maserati Quattroporte to head to Abu Dhabi to see the incredible Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and other iconic venues. 

17. You can take to the skies in a helicopter tour

Explore Dubai from above with a private helicopter ride over the twinkling city. You can opt for anything from 10 minutes to an hour-long tour, whatever you’re most comfortable with, but we say the longer the better when viewing Dubai’s most incredible attractions from the skies. 

18. Little ones are looked after at the Little Gems Club

Whether you’ve got tiny tots or adventurous tweens, the Little Gems Club has everything your little ones need to be entertained for the whole holiday. They have their own pool as well as a plethora of activities. This includes gardening, crafts, dancing and joining in the entertainment.
