Bvlgari will add to its hotel portfolio with the opening of a property in Rome.
The new Roman hotel will be strategically located in the central Piazza Augusto Imperatore, in the very heart of the Campo Marzio neighbourhood, next to the iconic Spanish Steps and the signature Bvlgari flagship boutique in Via Condotti.
When it opens its doors, The Bvlgari Hotel Roma will occupy a current building facing two of the most iconic Roman landmarks: the Ara Pacis and the Mausoleum of Augustus, the first Roman Imperator. The building was built between 1936 and 1938 and has become an iconic piece of architecture within the historical city which emphasises the traditional use of Roman materials and colours including ochre Travertine marble and red brick.
The architectural project and interior design of the hotel will be handled by Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel who have worked on all other Bvlgari hotels around the world.
Bvlgari CEO Jean-Christophe Babin said in a statement:
“We are particularly proud to have secured such an extraordinary location for the new Bvlgari Hotel in Rome. This Hotel, to be opened in 2022, represents a remarkable achievement for Bvlgari that will finally have its own ‘temple’ right in the city where the Company was founded and that still represents nowadays the beating heart of the brand. It will be by far Roma most luxurious hospitality experience ever.”
The hotel will feature over 100 rooms, most of them suites as well as Il Ristorante the restaurant curated by Michelin-starred chef Niko Romito and the Bvlgari bar, both of which will be located on the top floor with spectacular views across the city. A range of wellness facilities will as well be available, with a high-end spa and its indoor swimming pool, and a state-of-the-art gym offering Bvlgari’s exclusive Workshop training method. As a unique feature, the Bvlgari Hotel Roma will also present a Reading Room containing a collection of precious volumes dedicated to the history of jewellery, which will be open to guests and public by appointment only.
To mark the occasion of the announcement of the Bvlgari Hotel Roma project, Bvlgari created “The Bvlgari Ospitalità Italiana Necklace” a special jewellery piece, reflecting the legendary house’s outstanding creativity and expertise.
This one of a kind white gold Tubogas chocker is enriched with 10 different precious stones, each of them matching the luxury destinations of the Bvlgari Hotels & Resorts collection.
