Bulgari Hotel is coming to Dubai’s Jumeirah Bay island, which is located off the coast of Jumeirah Beach Road.
Dubai-based real estate development company Meraas Holding signed an agreement with Bulgari Hotels and Resorts to bring the luxury hospitality brand to Dubai. It will be the hotel company’s fifth property following the opening in Milan in 2004, Bali in 2006, London in 2012, and Shanghai that is scheduled to open in 2015.
The Bulgari Hotel at Jumeirah Bay island is a six million square feet mixed-use development, sculpted in the shape of a titanic seahorse, and will feature 100 rooms and suites in the main hotel buildings, as well as 20 low rise residential villas. It will also comprise a 1.7 million square-foot marina and a full range of luxury hotel facilities.
Bulgari has chosen Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners to design the hotel, which will feature a mix of both traditional and modern themes. It will convey the brand’s core values of contemporary design and craftsmanship, while reflecting the design and style of the surrounding area.
The hotel will be the third designer hotel in the UAE, followed by the Armani Hotel in Dubai and the Palazzo Versace.
