The Bulgari Resort Dubai, jutting out into the Arabian Gulf on a seahorse-shaped peninsular, is the first and only Bulgari-branded property in the Middle East. The location is a draw in itself, but the Italian jeweler and watchmaker has inspired the hotel’s design, facilities, and restaurants. Italian touches dominate, with travertine marble from Tivoli in the rooms, and Vicenza stone walls in the spa. There is also an Italian restaurant where three-Michelin-starred chef Niko Romito overseas the menu. The resort is also home to Bulgari’s first-ever private marina and yacht club with ocean and city views.
