Without a doubt, Dubai is one of the most sought-after destinations in the United Arab Emirates, thanks to its upscale boutiques, ultramodern architecture and vibrant nightlife.

The luxurious Bulgari Resort Dubai, designed by the Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel Studio, opened on December 7, 2017. Fashioned like a priceless jewel, the Bulgari Resort Dubai is, in fact, a “destination within a destination”. It blends the charm of a Mediterranean village with sophisticated Middle-Eastern overtones. The resort hotel sits on an entirely man-made island that also hosts a yacht marina and multi-use buildings with cutting-edge architecture.

The hotel’s spectacular facade features a striking “coral effect” grillwork made of an innovative material that screens out heat and filters sunlight. Designed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel (like all the hotels in the Bulgari chain), the Bulgari Resort Dubai also marries the iconic identity of the Bulgari brand with the spirit of the location.

Flexform partnered in the decor of this luxury hotel by providing many furniture pieces by Antonio Citterio. With its atmosphere of smooth sophistication, Il Bar quickly became a meeting place for the Dubai elite and the hotel’s international guests. The dramatic oval bar is surrounded by Feel Good bar stools, while Feel Good and Morgan armchairs offer elegant seating in the adjacent dining room. Groundpiece sofas, Helen and Feel Good armchairs and Dany coffee tables create the inviting warmth of a living room in the splendid lobby lounge. And, to round out the furnishings for the Junior Suites, Evergreen sofas were paired with Dida side tables.
