On September 27, Bulgari will officially cut the ribbon for Bulgari Hotel Beijing—the fourth hotel and newest addition to The Bulgari Hotels & Resorts collection. The new hotel is situated in the heart of Beijing’s Embassy District, within the Genesis complex. The hotel will neighbor the popular dining and fashion area of Sanlitun—not to mention that the National Art Museum of China and the National Center for the Performing Arts are right nearby as well.
Conceived as an urban resort, Bulgari Hotel Beijing balances art and nature in its design with sculpted gardens that extend along the Liangma River. The accompanying Genesis Art Foundation furthers this style.
Service at the Bulgari Hotel Beijing encourages personalization; concierges can organize dinners at tourist locations like the Great Wall of China, or book guest transportation in the hotel’s Maserati limousines. There will also be 24-hour suite butler services.
The hotel was designed by the Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel architectural firm, with each element of the hotel designed to cultivate a sense of refinement, from the marble soaking baths to the finishes of the hotel’s public spaces.
Bulgari Hotel Beijing offers 119 rooms, each with views, the 400-square-meter Bulgari Suite, as well as a 1,500-square-meter Bulgari Spa. The Spa offers 11 treatment rooms, an 82-foot swimming pool, vitality pool, sauna, steam room and Technogym fitness studio. As for culinary options, Michelin-starred chef Niko Romito will be presiding over Il Ristorante, a fine dining Italian-Chinese fusion restaurant run by Romito’s personally trained chefs.
Two more Bulgari hotels—one in Dubai and one in Moscow—are expected to be opened in 2017 and 2019, respectively.
