As reported by Business Traveller earlier this month (see online news February 1), Bulgari Hotels and Resorts will open its first London property next year, to be managed by the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company.
A joint venture between Bulgari and Marriott International (owners of the Ritz-Calton brand), the group has now added the London hotel to the list of destinations on its website, with an opening date set for "spring 2012".
A release from Ritz-Carlton says that the hotel will feature "sleek lines and refined colour combinations created using a variety of marbles, fine woods, and unique details", with silver being the dominant theme of the interior design.
The hotel will have 85 rooms including seven Bulgari suites (each measuring over 200sqm), and other facilities will include a restaurant, large ballroom, a private cinema and a 2,000sqm Spa and fitness centre with 25m indoor pool.
