London charm, Italian style.
Bvlgari Hotel London is the kind of hotel that arrives in a city, at most, only once in a generation. The hotel's sleek architecture and refined interiors, featuring a selection of furnishings and textiles made exclusively for Bvlgari, were designed by Antonio Citterio, Patricia Viel and Partners. With 85 spacious guest rooms and suites, along with six floors of lavish amenities, the hotel offers Bvlgari glamour and heritage combined with sustainable design features and state-of-the-art technology.
Everything that is singular and remarkable about London can be found in Knightsbridge. Here are the city's most exclusive addresses, its most distinguished cultural venues, its most luxurious department stores and boutiques. The grand cornerstones of Knightsbridge, from the Royal Albert Hall to the Victoria and Albert Museum to Harrods, have not only stood the test of time, they have gained lasting elegance and cultural relevance. This, then, is London's most prestigious neighborhood, and also one of its most livable, with the full, appealing expanse of Hyde Park stretching out to its north. Combining heritage and modernity, refinement and effortless elegance, Knightsbridge is the natural setting for a hotel that emphasizes these same exceptional qualities.
Design, service, and exceptionally generously proportioned rooms and suites combined with unrivalled facilities such as a full gymnasium and physical training centre with on-site Workshop personal training team; 11 single treatment rooms and 1 private spa suite Spa; 25 metres, three-lane swimming pool; 47 seat Screening Room; unique Cigar Shop and sampling room, a stunning Ballroom; to deliver a city hotel experience that is unique in the world.
Rooms and Suites
The 85 light filled rooms and suites at Bvlgari Hotel London are amongst the largest in London. Each is an uncluttered oasis of calm, comfort and understated elegance. Bvlgari's attention to detail is evident in the use of exquisite marbles, fine woods and unique detailing such as the 17 times polished Sapele Mahogany wood panels. With furnishings and fabrics made exclusively for Bvlgari, English style blends with Italian heritage. Bvlgari's history as a jeweller and silversmith is subtly evoked in the Italian damask silk fabrics that feature a floral and foliate pattern. The sleek contours, smooth finishes and rounded edges favoured by designer Citterio evoke memories of the golden age of nautical travel; while the mini bar is to be found within a sumptuous leather covered travel trunk built expressly for Bvlgari. The large bathrooms feature freestanding baths and showers in Marquina marble and white glass.
On one entire floor of Bvlgari Hotel London, the stunning Ballroom, dedicated to Giorgio and Costantino Bvlgari, seats up to 140 guests for lunch, dinner, an exclusive conference, charity ball or 280 guests for a reception. Handcrafted solid silver chandeliers dominate the Ballroom. Designed and made exclusively for Bvlgari by Padgham and Putland Silversmiths, they are set to become the most impressive pair of silverware pieces made this century. The entire space is served by the latest sophisticated lighting and technology, including a professional Bose loudspeaker system, piped music and wireless Internet. The reception area features a built-in bar of ribbed steel, glass and mirrors, and a cupola lined with white gold mosaic, created by Italian artisans.
Spa and Fitness
Regarded by many as the crowning achievement of the hotel, Bvlgari Spa has curated a selection of the most advanced beauty, grooming and health-enhancing treatments available today, offering the flexibility of one off specialist treatments to long term life-improvement programmes uniquely tailored to the needs of the individual. This tranquil, spacious and blissfully uncrowded two storey complex comprises fitness room, steam rooms, saunas, ice showers, 11 treatment rooms, one luxurious private spa suite and a relaxation room with a dramatic vertical fireplace and offers an urban oasis of experiences that soothe the mind, invigorate the body and revive the senses. At the heart of the unique Bvlgari Spa experience is the most dramatic private pool complex in central London: the main 25 metre colonnaded swimming pool with its loungers and cabanas is clad in the textured Vicenza stone. Providing a counterpoint to this architectural simplicity is the vitality pool with its variety of full body massage jets, and which, finished with tiny tiles of gold leaf glass, recalls the glittering gorgeousness of the Byzantine mosaics of Venice and Ravenna.
