Bvlgari Hotel London
On 28th May 2012 Bulgari Hotel London opened in the heart of central London’s most prestigious area, Knightsbridge, as the first brand new luxury hotel build in the city for 40 years. Bulgari Hotel London pays tribute to Bulgari’s silversmith origins and Britain’s noble manufacturing traditions with an understated, elegant design concept with silver forming the underlying theme of the design. The sleek architecture and refined interiors are designed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, coupling Bulgari glamour and heritage with sustainable design features and state of the art technology. Many of the furnishings and textiles throughout the hotel are made exclusively for Bulgari crafted by Italian manufacturers.
The 85 rooms and suites feature exquisite detailing throughout, such as custom made silk curtains with patterns inspired by some of the classic Bulgari jewellery designs, and bed side table lamps by Bulgari’s silver candlesticks. The silver theme continues throughout the hotel with handcrafted Italian detailing such as the two stunning handcrafted solid silver Bulgari chandeliers in the Ballroom, creating a dramatic centrepiece. Open exclusively to day spa guests, members and guests of the hotel, the 2,000sqm Bulgari Spa London is spread over two floors and has been crafted from onyx, oak and Vicenza stone. Highlights of the Spa include 11 private treatment rooms and one double spa suite, complete with its own steam room, Jacuzzi and private treatment room; a 25m swimming pool, created from Vicenza stone and featuring a shimmering green and gold mosaic; and a 150m² fitness area with a fully equipped, state of the art Workshop Gymnasium. Bulgari Hotel London celebrates its silver screen heritage with the luxurious 47-seat Private Cinema, dedicated to Sir Richard Attenborough and offering state of the art cinema-quality sound and vision and an exclusively-curated library of more than 300 new and classic films available to guests of the hotel. The Private Cinema is also capable of hosting press events, advance screening film premieres and is available to hire for private screenings. Bulgari Hotel London provides sumptuous meeting facilities flexible enough to accommodate events of all kinds with two boardrooms and two private offices, as well as two private dining rooms and a Ballroom with private foyer that can cater for up to 150 discerning guests. In the luxury surrounds of the hotel’s Edward Sahakian Cigar Shop & Sampling Lounge, rare and vintage cigars can be sampled and purchased. As a brand new build in the heart of Knightsbridge, the state of the art Bulgari Hotel London, employs pioneering methods of sustainable luxury and has been developed according to best practices in design set by BREEAM, the leading environmental assessment method for buildings. To meet the strict BREEAM criteria the hotel features such initiatives as an ecologically designed “green roof” with bird and bat boxes, the sponsoring of electric car charging points within the vicinity of the hotel, and energy conserving intelligent lighting. Geothermal Energy, a cost effective, reliable, sustainable and environmentally friendly form of energy generation, has been integrated into the hotel building and is the first of its kind in the UK.
