Bulgari Hotels and Resorts has opened its latest luxury property – an 85-room hotel opposite Hyde Park in London’s Knightsbridge area.

The opening has yet to be officially announced by either Bulgari or joint venture partner Marriott International, but a call to the hotel’s front desk confirmed that it opened on Monday May 28.

Bulgari Hotel London offers 85 rooms and suites, featuring luxury interiors and amenities including minibars resembling travel trunks, freestanding Marquina marble bathtubs, 42-inch LCD TVs, Nespresso coffee machines, free wifi and Bulgari toiletries.

Granite-clad Il Bar has a separate entrance from Knightsbridge Green, and features a hammered silver effect bar, ceiling finished in titanium, and Sapele mahogany walls.

A staircase leads down to Il Ristorante, headed up by chef Robbie Pepin, with features including exclusive furniture and Bulgari cutlery, and offering “contemporary dishes, drawing on classic Italian gastronomic traditions”.

The two-floor spa features a 25-metre swimming pool, vitality pool, thermal experiences with ice fountains and cooling showers, relaxation room, 11 treatment rooms offering “exclusive bespoke Bulgari treatments”, a fitness centre and nail salon.

For events there is a ballroom seating up to 160 guests, with handcrafted solid silver chandeliers, and a private screening room dedicated to Sir Richard Attenborough seating up to 47 people.

When Business Traveller checked on the Bulgari Hotels website today, rooms were available for the promotional rate of £528 (including VAT) during the first week of June, rising to £708 for the second week in June.
