Bulgari, a brand that is synonymous with luxury, elegance, and style. Founded in 1884 in Rome, Italy, by Sotirios Voulgaris, Bulgari quickly established itself as one of the world’s leading makers of fine jewelry and luxury goods. Over the years, the company expanded its offerings to include watches, fragrances, and accessories, all of which were renowned for their exquisite craftsmanship and timeless design. In 2001, Bulgari made its first foray into the hospitality industry with the opening of the Bulgari Hotel Milan. The hotel was an instant success, with its sophisticated design, impeccable service, and prime location in the heart of Milan’s fashion district. Building on this success, Bulgari continued to expand its hotel portfolio, opening properties in some of the world’s most iconic cities, including London, Dubai, Shanghai, and Bali. Each Bulgari hotel is a reflection of the brand’s core values of quality, craftsmanship, and attention to detail.
The design of each property is a seamless blend of contemporary and classic, with clean lines, muted colors, and a sense of understated luxury that is both timeless and modern. The interiors are often inspired by the local culture and history of the city in which the hotel is located, with subtle nods to the brand’s Italian heritage. One of the defining features of Bulgari hotels is their commitment to creating a personalized experience for each guest. A level of service that is both attentive and discreet.

In addition to their exceptional service and design, Bulgari hotels are also renowned for their world-class amenities.
Many properties feature spas, gyms, and swimming pools, as well as on-site restaurants and bars that offer a range of culinary delights.

Despite their diverse locations and unique designs, all Bulgari hotels share a common thread: a commitment to creating an unforgettable experience for each guest. Whether you’re staying in a luxurious suite or a more modest room, you can expect to be treated with the same level of care and attention to detail.
