Bulgari Resort to be Dubais most expensive
11 de novembro de 2017
An island was built on the citys coast to host the hotel, a marina and residences. The project was developed by group Meeras, and will be open in December.
São Paulo – Bulgari Resort & Residence is already operating after its soft opening, with the grand opening set to December 7. The hotel was designed in 2015 and is located at Jumeirah Bay Island, a new island with the shape of a seahorse that was built in only two years at Dubai’s coastline.
The daily fee of the hotel’s Villas is expected to be the emirate’s most expensive. These are luxury houses of one to three bedrooms, ranging from 175 to 1,000 square meters. The Bulgari Villa, the hotel’s largest and most sophisticated, has a built area of 540 square meters, with private outdoor area of 500 sqm, with a garden and wooden decked terrace, oval pool, private home cinema, indoor jacuzzi and hammam, among other conveniences.
The daily fee was not released, but it’s estimated to be more expensive than the three-bedroom Villa of 315 sqm. The minimum three-night stay in this Villa costs around USD 17,000, without taxes.
If compared to two other luxury hotels in the emirate, this three-bedroom Villa is more expensive. At hotel Jumeirah Zabeel Saray Royal Residences, the four-bedroom Villa costs near USD 14,000 for a three-night stay. The famous Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, the sail-shaped traditional landmark of the city, charges USD 7,000 for a three-night stay at the Deluxe room, with 335 sqm. The data was surveyed at the booking website Booking.com and at the hotels’ websites.
The new luxury hotel has 101 rooms and 20 Villas and is managed by the group Marriot Ritz-Carlton. The project designed by the group Meeras also has a marina for 50 boats and the Bulgari Yacht Club. The total cost of the project was estimated at around USD 1 billion.
The island’s residences include 165 apartments from 1 to 4 bedrooms located in six buildings, with eight penthouses valued at USD 16.5 million each, plus 15 mansions. The Jumeirah Bay island has a total area of 558,000 sqm and is accessible via a 300-meters bridge from the Jumeirah Beach Road.
The Bulgari Resort’s total area is 158,000 sqm and the hotel will have six restaurants along the marina’s boardwalk, plus a Japanese restaurant for only 8 people at a times.
The Bulgari chain has hotels in Milan, Bali and London and, in addition to the grand opening in Dubai next month, it plans to launch a venture in Shanghai in 2018 and one in Moscow in 2020.
