Inaugurated last June in London’s prestigious Knightsbridge neighborhood, the Bulgari Hotel is truly magnificent, a lavish alliance of artistic Italian design and chic British style. Join us for a guided tour of 171 Knightsbridge.
The interior design is by the architectural and design studio of Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel & Partners. A harmonious blend of precious marble and silver theme is punctuated by motifs inspired by Bulgari creations, including silk curtains custom-made for the hotel in Italy, a nod to the patterns on an 1800s silver brooch by Sotirio Bulgari himself.
The 85 rooms and suites—the most spacious in London—feature grey, beige and brown tones, providing a sleek, intimate feel that is enhanced by sumptuous materials from exquisite marble and fine wood to virgin wool. Special attention is paid to every detail and certain furnishings have been designed by Bulgari exclusively for the hotel. This luxuriant ambiance is joined by stunning views overlooking Hyde Park or Knightsbridge.
Guests enjoy exceptional services. The restaurant—Il Ristorante—is led by noted young Italian-Scottish chef Robbie Peppin, who trained with Ducasse. He applies his remarkable talent to revisiting classics of Italian cuisine.
The grandiose Ballroom includes cupolas with two sumptuous handcrafted solid silver chandeliers weighting 90 kg each, made exclusively for Bulgari by Padgham and Putland Silversmiths. The glamorous room can accommodate up to 160 guests seated for dinner.
The Bulgari spa, which features a surface of 2,000 square meters, in the lower level offers a peaceful haven dedicated to well-being, with green onyx and Vicenza stone walls. The swimming pool is a true jewel of Italian glass mosaics, set off with gold leaf.
The five-star palace is also a remarkable alliance of luxury and social responsibility, conform to the most demanding environmental standards.
