Jumeirah Bay Island – seahorse-shaped, manmade and connected to the central Dubai mainland by a 300m causeway – may be the first such development in this emirate to really, truly pay off the “urban resort” claim made by so many. That’s because it’s now home exclusively to the Bulgari Resort and Residences Dubai (bulgarihotels.com; from £600).

With its fifth hospitality endeavour, Bulgari really pushes the boat out – literally: the showcase is a full-service marina with restaurants, a private yacht club and berths accommodating boats from 10m to 40m in size. This sits alongside a hotel whose 101 rooms and suites and 20 villas are signed Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel Partners (like all Bulgari resorts), as well as a private beach, a restaurant created to showcase the talents of the hugely sought-after Abruzzese chef Niko Romito, and Bulgari’s first resort concept store.
