"The opening of the first Bulgari hotel in China underlines the importance of this market for our brand and it is a symbol of the fruitful dialogue between our two countries," said Bulgari CEO Jean Christophe Babin.
Following the opening of The Bulgari Hotel Milan in 2004, The Bulgari Resort Bali in 2006 and The Bulgari Hotel London in 2012, this newest addition to The Bulgari Hotels & Resorts collection, The Bulgari Hotel Beijing, opened on September 27, which is the fourth Bulgari Hotel in the world and the first in China.
Celebrities, artists, designers and the high society of Beijing gathered to celebrate the hotel's opening gala dinner hosted by Bulgari CEO Jean Christophe Babin and Chairman of Genesis Bao Min. Bulgari brand ambassador Shu Qi and famous actress Zhang Ziyi celebrated the grand opening together.
Designed by architects Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel, The Bulgari Hotel Beijing is crowned seven years of meticulous construction works.
A Bulgari lifestyle, blending art with nature
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.
A unique portrait of Sotirio Bulgari painted by Yan Peiming, one of the greatest contemporary artists of his generation, welcomes guests in the hotel lobby. Overlooking the Liangma River, the new Bulgari property enjoys sweeping views of its riverside gardens from the hotel lobby, the restaurant and from all the rooms. The gardens surrounding the property are an oasis of green serenity designed by Swiss-based landscape artist Enzo Enea who conceived them as a dialogue between the Italian and Chinese landscape traditions, complementing the exquisite Italian-inspired interiors through a fusion of outdoor and indoor spaces.
