The Bulgari Resort Dubai is one of six exquisite hotels and resorts from the Italian luxury goods brand.
Situated on Jumeirah Bay, a man-made island shaped like a seahorse, the sunny property is a typically sophisticated design from Milan-based architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, for Meraas Development.
Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of this 52,000m² development is the façade’s coral-pattern sunscreens that cast intricate shadows onto the main building and complement the elaborate balcony design. They guard overlapping wooden terraces that open the resort up to sensational views.
Expressing the theme of ‘Mediterranean village’, Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel presents a luxury complex that comprises 101 rooms and suites as well as 20 villas on the shoreline with private pools and beachfront terraces. Each room comes with elegant designer touches such as vintage trunk minibars, handcrafted Italian furniture and silk-covered walls. Outside, a private marina is on show featuring 50 boat berths and Bulgari’s first yacht club.
The Bulgari Resort Dubai boasts a range of amenities, including Il Ristorante by Niko Romito; a characteristic oval bar; a chocolate boutique; spa, pool and fitness facilities; and the exclusive La Spiaggia beach. Rare materials like Iranian green onyx and Mongolian black granite are used throughout the interior, complemented by displays of Bulgari pieces and nautical artworks. Lavish gardens with Mediterranean vegetation surround the resort.
AluK is proud to have been part of this project’s success: AluK’s aluminium building systems were specified, including windows, doors, and lift and slide doors. These enable residents and visitors to enjoy spectacular views of the exotic city.
