This hotly anticipated hotel opened in late 2017 to great fanfare, and it certainly lives up to the hype. It is the largest Bulgari hotel in the world with 101 rooms and 20 private villas, the most fabulous of which is The Bulgari Villa. The 5,813-sq-ft villa has three bedrooms, a 14-person dining space, large living room, kitchen, home cinema, indoor Jacuzzi and hammam. The outdoor space is almost as big as the interior — at 5,382 sq ft, it has pristine gardens, a terrace and an oval pool with views of the sea beyond. The villa’s spacious living area also has towering glass windows that welcome the fiery orange sunset each night. Sailors will love The Bulgari Yacht Club (the first and only from the brand) with a waterfront restaurant serving delicious seafood dishes; a members lounge, library and boardroom; and a swimming pool and 46-boat private marina.
