Bvl­gari Re­sort Dubai tar­gets year-end launch

Business Traveller (Middle East) - - Upfront -

THE FIRST BVGLARI HO­TEL in the Mid­dle East is on track to open on Dubai’s Jumeira Bay Is­land at the end of 2017. The Bvl­gari Re­sort and Res­i­dences, de­vel­oped by Mer­aas Hold­ing, will fea­ture 100 rooms and suites and 20 res­i­den­tial vil­las with road ac­cess and pri­vate pools.

High­lights in­clude an ex­clu­sive sushi restau­rant on the ho­tel’s top floor with a ca­pac­ity for just eight guests and six in­de­pen­dent restau­rants lo­cated around the re­sort’s ma­rina prom­e­nade. Other F&B con­cepts in­clude the sig­na­ture Bul­gari Bar and Restau­rant serv­ing Ital­ian cui­sine, a more ca­sual Bul­gari café, a branch of the brand’s gourmet Il Cio­col­lato cho­co­late store and a pool and beach bar.

It will raise the lux­ury stakes with Four Sea­sons Re­sort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach nearby and other high-end op­er­a­tors, with rates that could be the high­est in the city.

To date the lux­ury brand has opened ho­tels in Lon­don and Mi­lan, a re­sort in Bali and restau­rants in Tokyo. Two Chi­nese projects are due to com­plete this year – a ho­tel and res­i­dences in Shang­hai and a ho­tel in Beijing – and a prop­erty is due to open in Moscow in 2019. Robert An­der­son
