Nestled in the heart of Knightsbridge district, London’s Bulgari Hotel is a modern oasis offering guests a luxurious respite amidst its bustling surroundings, including popular landmarks such as Hyde Park and Harrods department store.

Like a jewellery box befitting the heritage of the renowned Italian jeweller, the hotel’s sleek and elegant architecture with dark wood interiors houses 85 state-of-the art rooms and suites that exude the artisanal craftsmanship of Bulgari. Silversmith touches can be seen at the silk fabrics that capture jewellery-inspired patterns, while xquisite wood panels, fine marbles and glistening silver lamps adorn the spacious rooms. Sprawling bathrooms with showers and freestanding baths are stunning sanctuaries decked in white glass and Marquina marble.

Dining pleasures await guests at the Bulgari Hotel. At the glamorous Il Bar, diners get to indulge in drinks and light meals throughout the day, or summer cocktails al-fresco along Knightsbridge Green. For French and Italian fare served in small plates, there’s Rivea London with its convivial setting paired with impeccable service. And for light lunches and that quintessential afternoon tea, the alluring Lounge Bar welcomes visitors and hotel guests for gatherings catering to business or pleasure –or both.

Its unrivalled facilities include a 47-seat screening room, a library, a beautiful ballroom, a cigar shop and a full gymnasium with an on-site personal training team. But the true gem of this hotel is its Spa –a wonderful refuge five storeys beneath.
