Bulgari Hotel London to Open in April

Bulgari Hotel is scheduled to open in London in April in the exclusive district of Knightsbridge, just in time for the Summer Olympics and the Queen’s Jubilee events.

Bulgari Hotel is managed by Bvlgari Hotels and Resorts, a joint venture between Italian jeweller Bvlgari (owned since last year by LVMH) and Marriott International.

Bulgari Hotels and Resorts already operates properties in Milan and Bali. The opening will signify the first luxury new-build hotel in 40 years to open in the city.

It will offer 85 rooms and suites, including seven Bulgari suits which measure over 200 sq. meters, and will be designed with silver as the dominant theme by Antonio Citterio, Patricia Viel & Partners, the company behind Bulgari’s other two hotels.

Guests will be able to enjoy a dip in an indoor pool, part of a 2,000 square meter spa and fitness center, as well as relaxing in the hotel’s private cinema or dancing the night away in a ballroom.

There will also be residences available for sale. A 7th floor penthouse is available through Christie’s International Real Estate.

Although few details are currently available online about the penthouse, the Bulgari Hotel’s website indicates that it features 9,260 square feet of exquisite living space.

As London becomes an increasingly popular luxury hotspot among visitors from Russia and the Middle East, the number of top-end hospitality firms looking to set up shop there has steadily grown.

London now boast new properties from ME by Sol Melia, Shangri-La and Alrov, along with the recently opened W London and newly refurbished The Savoy.
