Bulgari Hotel, a veritable haven of peace in the heart of the frenetic city centre, is surrounded by a private garden of 4000 square meters and is ideally located on a private street near Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga and La Scala Opera. The hotel has 58 rooms and suites overlooking either the garden of the hotel, either to the nearby botanical gardens. The Bulgari Suite, located on the top floor offers spectacular views over the historic center.
The design was created by architect Antonio Citterio firm and Partners, in accordance with bold and contemporary style house Bulgari, using rare and precious materials to create unusual color combinations and harmonies: black marble from Zimbabwe in the public areas, Vicenza stone and Turkish aphyon in the spa, hard teak and traditional white oak in the intimate bedrooms and suites.
An enormous oval bar divides the hotel restaurant, and dominates the cocktail lounge that looks out over the veranda. This space has been intelligently separated into two parts to avoid destroying the harmony of the restaurant. For cigar and spirit connoisseurs, a very cosy smoking-room is available adjacent to the restaurant – perfect if the weather is good.
One is taken aback by the hotel spa where, in sumptuous and elegant surroundings, the daylight shines through the glass façade and glints off of the golden mosaics in the swimming pool. As for the Turkish bath, its green-tinted glass walls bring to mind the mysterious emerald, BVLGARI’s signature gem.
The extremely spacious suites include a bedroom, a large lounge and a bathroom complete with freestanding bath and separate shower and toilet cubicles, entirely decorated in creamy travertine to accentuate the bright décor. The corridor, with its filtered lighting, instils a feeling of calmness and intimacy after entering through the impressively wide, airlock-style front doors.
