The Bulgari Hotel Beijing

Referred to as an ‘Urban Resort’, The Bulgari Hotel Beijing is located in the Chaoyang neighbourhood amid the prestigious green surroundings of the Embassy District – the heart of China’s capital city.

The Bulgari Hotel Beijing rises within the new Genesis project, an oasis of tranquillity that balances art and nature with sculpted gardens that extend along the Liangma River and include the Genesis Art Foundation, designed by Tadao Ando.

As with all the Bulgari Hotels and Resorts, the Bulgari Hotel Beijing was entirely designed by renowned Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. They conceived both the interiors and exteriors in a process comparable to the creation of a high-end Bulgari jewel: pairing rare, raw materials according to colour, texture and feel, and sculpting them into objects of enduring beauty.

In the spirit of integral design dating back to the 1930s, the architects hand- selected or custom-designed every element for consistency, comfort and purity, allowing the hotel’s design to maintain an uncompromisingly Italian style, while simultaneously incorporating the uniqueness of its destination.

The hotel’s 119 exquisitely furnished rooms – using outstanding Italian luxury residential furniture brands like Maxalto, B&B Italia and Flos – include the exceptional Bulgari Suite with some of the best views over the city. Measuring nearly 400 square meters – and offering guests modern Italian design with touches of Chinese tradition coupled with cutting-edge technology – The Bulgari Suite is one of the largest suites in Beijing.

Il Ristorante – Niko Romito offers spectacular views over the park and an outstanding terrace for outdoor dining. From custom-designed Murano glass chandeliers to chairs and columns wrapped in dark-brown leather, every element of the restaurant’s ambiance has been crafted to ensure a seamless experience.

Hailing from the Italian region of Abruzzo, Michelin-starred chef Niko Romito is the genius behind the gourmet delicacies at Il Ristorante. Working from his headquarters in Italy and regularly counselling his personally-trained resident chef Diego Ottaviani, Romito brings to Il Ristorante a menu that optimally expresses the culture, elegance and vitality of ‘Made in Italy’.

With its sophisticated atmosphere, Il Bar at The Bulgari Hotel Beijing is the city’s elite gathering place. Guests can enjoy cocktails, fine wine, champagne and Bulgari’s renowned ‘aperitivo’ at the signature oval bar, or on the outdoor terrace overlooking the river.

The 1500 square-metre BVLGARI SPA adds a further luxurious touch to the guest experience featuring 11 treatment rooms, a fitness center and a 25-metres pool made of shimmering mosaic tiles. Inspired by Ancient Rome, they recall the patterns of the historic Terme di Caracalla Roman baths.

On the banks of the Liangma River, which were once used as the training grounds for Imperial thoroughbreds, The Bulgari Hotel Beijing is set amidst lush private gardens, created by international landscape designer Enzo Enea, founder of the Tree Museum in Zurich. The Swiss-based landscape artist conceived them as a dialogue between Italy and China, complementing the exquisite Italian- inspired interiors through a fusion of outdoor and indoor spaces. Two large sculptures by Taiwanese artist Zhu Ming represent the blend between art and nature. The nearby Riverbank Amphitheatre brings added charm, with its open-air concerts, theatre performances and cultural events.

The boutiques, restaurants and art galleries of Sanlitun are all close by, while the 798 Art District – Beijing’s new landmark for urban culture – is less than 10 minutes away by car. The historic attractions of the Lama Temple and the Forbidden City can be conveniently reached in the comfort of the hotel’s Maserati limousines.
