Bulgari Resort Bali

Overlooking the shimmering Indian Ocean and golden beaches reached by private funicular, Bulgari Resort Bali is contemporary by design, set in the style of a mini village - built and furnished with exotic woods, tactile fabrics, and hand-cut volcanic stones. 

The hotel boasts four bars and restaurants serving a mix of fresh grilled seafood, Indonesian dishes, and Italian cuisine blended with local organic ingredients. In addition to a state-of-the-art fitness centre, the Bulgari Spa at the ocean’s edge offers a selection of luxurious treatments focusing on the body’s seven chakras to ease you into a state of relaxation and bliss. The spa menu integrates European and Asian treatments with Ayurvedic Balinese rituals and the use of warm volcanic stones on major energy points of the body.

Treat yourself to a stay in an elegant one or two-bedroom villa with an ocean view. The accommodations are inspired by traditional Balinese houses with lanterns illuminating the entrance. Bulgari Resort in Bali also offers curated experiences, including a trip to Pura Luhur Uluwatu, one of Bali’s famous sea temples, guests can participate in a Melukat Purifying Ceremony – said to bring good fortune, enjoy Balinese cooking classes, helicopter flights over a volcano and a range of artisanal workshops.

Bulgari Resort Dubai

Nestled on Jumeirah Bay, Bulgari Resort Dubai blends Mediterranean charm with Middle Eastern ornate decor. The low-rise hotel, positioned on an island, is set aside lush tropical gardens and aquamarine ocean, just 15 minutes’ drive from Burj Khalifa - the world’s tallest building.

The hotel design is unusual and exquisite. Coral-like canopies envelop themselves around the façade beset with maritime flourishes, as wooden walkways stretch out akin to the deck of a ship. The resort features a medley of bar and dining options for guests to enjoy. Indulge in an Omakase experience at Michelin star rated Hōseki, an intimate Japanese restaurant, dine on delectable Italian dishes at Il Ristorante – Niko Romito or sip signature cocktails in the sociable Bulgari Bar.

Explore Dubai and its shopping malls minus the tourists on a private access trip with your own personal shopper, visit Old Dubai, or discover the Arabian desert – home to gazelles and Arabian Oryx, complete with a private chef and stargazing! Finally, conclude a day of exploration at the 24-hour fitness centre or in the Bulgari Spa – an indoor oasis with swimming pool, treatment rooms, a hammam and a vitality pool inspired by the ancient Roman baths of Caracalla.
