An exquisite gem of a resort and a first of its kind for the luxury brand

Bulgari’s newest resort in Dubai’s man-made Jumeirah Bay is an exclusive waterfront development, private beach and private residence in the shape of a seahorse. With many elements offered on unprecedented magnitude and scale, the development represents several firsts for the brand.

Soft, sweeping motions like waves lapping at the shore inform Cracknell’s design language and create a flow of movement, including the undulating screens of an entrance approach that hides back-of-house facilities.

Astonishing, ancient baobabs were exclusively and sustainably imported from Australia, and rise from water features resembling their native marshland settings. A boulevard of mature Indian almond trees creates a canopy of dappled shade leading to the hotel, creating a moment of surprise like opening a jewellery box.
