Bvlgari Hotels and Resorts are working to unveil a new hotel in Paris by 2020. We have the scoop
The hotel will be located at the famous Triangle d’Or (the golden triangle) that connects 30 Avenue George V, the Champs-Élysées and the Avenue Montaigne and is one of the city’s most upscale areas for cultural attractions, entertainment and luxury shopping. In a recent press release, Bvlgari’s CEO, Jean Christophe Babin said it was an extraordinary location for the hotel and tourists and travellers would get to savour an irresistible Roman jeweller hospitality experience there.
The property will have 76 rooms, a majority of which will be suites. Guests will be able to avail facilities such as a luxury spa with a 25 meter long pool and indulge in a meal at the signature Bvlgari restaurant and bar that will open to a majestic courtyard garden.
Renowned Parisian architects Valode & Pistre and Italian firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel have been bestowed with the opportunity to create a masterpiece. Valode & Pistre has envisioned the building as a transition to modernity. In keeping with the 19th century, Parisian limestone is being used to align the architecture goals with Haussmanian patterns. Along with this, the façade will be completely renewed to strike a rational balance between the old and contemporary design.
Bvlgari is well known for standardising all its hotel designs with close attention to detail and quality. While building the structure, it will ensure the interior design reflects the traditions of the place, and is strongly rooted in its commitment to provide the finest comforts to its guests. Apart from the design, the Italian heritage of the brand reflects even in its cuisine and its lavish detox spas — firmly associating Bvlgari with timeless glamour.
The 134-year-old brand was founded as a jewellery shop in Rome in 1884 and quickly came to be known for its exquisite craftsmanship. From then, it came to be recognised as a global luxury brand for diverse products and services such as watches, fine jewellery, perfumes, accessories, and very recently, hotels.
Its first hotel was launched in Milan in 2004 followed by a resort in Bali in 2006, and another hotel in London in 2012. Since then it has been on an aggressive expansion spree, opening two hotels in 2017 in Dubai and Beijing. Later this year, the luxury company will launch a hotel in Shanghai; in 2020 the tally will go up to eight with new launches in Moscow and Paris, as construction for both hotels is underway.
Many of its properties are already among the top choices for tourists and critics alike. Bvlgari Bali was named as the second best resort to stay in Asia by Smart Travel Asia magazine in a 2011 poll. Another travel magazine chose Bvlgari London’s private screening room as the best in the city. The Dubai property has been coveted with the title of ‘costliest hotel in the Middle East’ surpassing the legendary Burj Al Arab. Here’s hoping the Paris edition will keep up with the Bvlgari legacy too!
