The 7th hotel in its collection, Bulgari effortlessly combines Italian design and hospitality with the glorious heritage of Paris
December 8, 2021: Opening its doors at the prestigious Avenue George V in Paris, the new Bulgari Hotel is a sophisticated dialogue of cultures.
The 76 rooms and suites are elegant, yet do not compromise on comfort. Books, photographs and artworks by Gio Ponti impart the intimate feel of a private apartment to the rooms. Bathrooms are highlighted by the Bulgari Serpenti Constellation motif engraved on glass artworks, using the technique developed by crystal design master René Lalique. The cold, stoic marble has been combined with warm, plush velvets to stunning effects throughout the hotel.
The crown jewel in this exceptional setting is the Bulgari Penthouse, where an extraordinary rooftop garden landscaped with Mediterranean plants and fruit trees offers a panoramic view of the French capital’s famous monuments. Blown glass light installations, wooden panels and floor-to-ceiling windows have been used cleverly to make the penthouse much more than just a hotel accommodation.
The pleasures of the palate haven’t been ignored at this highly anticipated property. Il Ristorante, the gourmet restaurant helmed by three-Michelin star chef Niko Romito, is discreetly hidden in a private garden. The chef has revisited traditional Italian cuisine with an emphasis on essential ingredients. Nearby, the jeweler’s signature generosity and elegance are on show at the Bulgari Bar and Lounge, the perfect place to meet.
The spa is a celebration of ancient Rome. There are two pools – including a 25-meter semi-Olympic pool – lined with stunning mosaics and designs that evoke the Carcalla baths of ancient Rome. The fitness space boasts state-of-the-art equipment and technology, while a beauty and hair salon propose an indulgent interlude of well-being.
This exceptional jewel glitters with service as impeccable as it is authentic. There is a multilingual messaging system, and guests are met and transferred to the hotel by Maserati. The array of bespoke services includes expert shoe care by renowned shoemaker Berluti as well.
