Bulgari Hotels are set to launch a new luxury hotel in 2017, located in Beijing’s upmarket Embassy District and overlooking the Liangma River.
The 120 rooms and suites of the hotel will be flanked by two office buildings and a contemporary art gallery. The space will be designed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners and will sit with the rest of the brand’s ‘contemporary Italian’ aesthetic for its hotel portfolio.
“The combination of the natural landscape with the artistic content will make this development a new benchmark for enlightened luxury living in the future,” explained Bulgari CEO Jean-Christophe Babin.
This hotel will join the brand’s existing locations in Milan, Bali, Tokyo and London. Ahead of the Beijing launch, another Chinese outpost is set to launch in 2016 in Shanghai, with a further hotel opening in Dubai in 2018.
Bulgari Hotels & Resorts will open a new hotel in Shanghai in 2015, announced Bulgari China on its Sina Weibo microblog Thursday.
The new hotel, to be located in a riverside complex in the artistic district of Suhe Creek, will be the fourth for the luxury hospitality group, a joint venture between Italian jeweler Bulgari and Marriott International.
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.
