Bvlgari Hotels and Resorts is proud to announce the opening of The Bvlgari Hotel Shanghai on June 20. Located on the banks of Suhe Creek, a riverside urban revitalization project, The Bvlgari Hotel Shanghai is the sixth jewel of Bvlgari's hospitality collection.
"The Bvlgari Hotel Shanghai is another milestone for the Bvlgari Hotels and Resorts collection and following the recent opening of our property in Beijing, the importance of the Chinese market for the Bvlgari brand has been confirmed. It is an honor for us to bring the best of Italian design and culture to one of the most modern, vibrant and glamorous cities in the world. Additionally, we are so glad that the date of the opening will coincide with the beginning of the Shanghai Film Festival that we have been supporting actively since 2017. As such, we are extremely proud to host its inaugurational party in the hotel's splendid ballroom and rooftop terrace on June 19, " Chief Executive Officer of Bvlgari Jean-Christophe Babin said..
Balancing nature, contemporary design and heritage architecture, the property combines a 48-floor tower, a majestically restored Chamber of Commerce Shanghai building dating back to 1916 and lush gardens which surround the whole area.
The hotel occupies the top eight floors of the tower, offering stunning views of the iconic Bund, the sky towers of Pudong's financial district and the dramatic curvature of the Huangpu River and Suzhou Creek. The lower floors are occupied by the Bvlgari Residences.
In line with the other Bvlgari properties, the renowned Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel shaped the hotel's design and created a glamorous contemporary masterpiece blending the distinctive Italian refinement of Bvlgari with rich layers of Shanghai history.
The hotel's 82 exquisitely crafted guestrooms, including 19 suites which crown the top eight floors of the 48-floor tower, have an average size of over 60 square meters, among the most spacious in the city. Guests experience the exceptional comfort of modern Italian furnishings custom-made by revered Italian brands such as B&B, Maxalto, Flos and Flexform, along with state-of-the-art technology which creates a warm residential ambience.
Accessed via a private lift, the exceptional 400-square-meter Bvlgari Suite located on the top floor, offers sweeping views of the Shanghai cityscape and can be extended to create a 570-square-meter three-bedroom residence by connecting it with an adjoining suite.
The Bvlgari Hotel Shanghai is home to six signature dining options located both in the hotel tower and in the adjacent historic Chamber of Commerce Shanghai.
The Italian Il Ristorante-Niko Romito is curated by chef Niko Romito, one of the world's most celebrated chefs with three Michelin stars for his Reale restaurant in Abruzzo, who presents a carefully curated canon of contemporary Italian cooking in a seductive restaurant on the 47th floor overlooking the city lights.
On the same floor, Il Bar with its iconic oval counter is the place for sophisticated sipping and socializing, while La Terrazza on the rooftop offers an Italian-style informal menu with spellbinding views of Shanghai's skyline.
