Missoni, Moschino, Armani and even Ferragamo; it seems as though every fashion house is entering the hotel business of late. Bulgari Hotels, the world's third largest luxury jeweler, was one of the first with its Milan luxury hotel opened in 2004 and Bali drama resort sequel that debuted in 2006. Now the luxury design chain has its eyes on London with a glossy, new-build property on the former-site of the Knightsbridge Palace Hotel. By the same architects as their previous properties, Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel, a thoroughly modern facade rises above the Victorian neighborhood with elements of Portland stone an bronze preserved in the design. Planned amenities for Bulgari Hotel London include a destination restaurant and bar with yet-to-be named chef as well as a members club that's the first of its kind in a London hotel. The property will also be home to a private cinema, ballroom and Bulgari-branded luxury spa of nearly 20,000-sq. ft. with indoor pool.
The hotel will be home to 85 rooms and suites with high-end room categories offering nearly 2,000-sq. ft. of space. Expect elements of Antonio Citterio's previous work for B&B Italia to be incorporated in room design with serene, spa-like bathrooms with a nod towards Asian-design. Co-branded under Marriott's Ritz Carlton arm, booking will be facilitated through the Ritz Carlton coporate site as with current Bulgari Hotel and Resort properties.
