In truth, do not arrive at this luxury hotel expecting to be dazzled by bling. The design of this hotel more resembles a cream and dark-edged jewellery box from Chanel. Nevertheless, the Bulgari Hotel packs oodles of sophisticated stone and rich wood features into its clean-lined contemporary design. The Bulgari suite offers a Turkish Bihara stone bath as well as a stone block fireplace that spills onto a dark wood terrace. To experience design in an island setting visit the Bulgari Resort in Bali where the 14,000 sq feet (1300 sq metres) Bulgari Villa offers full service and a 65 feet (20 metres) lap pool.
