Located on the banks of Suzhou Creek, and part of the riverside urban revitalisation project of Suhe Creek, the property is the sixth in the collection.
“The Bvlgari Hotel Shanghai is another milestone for the Bvlgari Hotels and Resorts collection and following the recent opening of our property in Beijing, confirms the importance of the Chinese market for the Bvlgari brand.
“It is an honour for us to bring the best of the Italian design and lifestyle culture to one of the most modern, vibrant and glamorous cities in the world.
“Additionally, we are so glad that the date of the opening will coincide with the beginning of the Shanghai Film Festival we have been supporting actively since 2017,” said Jean-Christophe Babin, chief executive, Bvlgari.
Balancing nature, contemporary design and heritage architecture, the property combines a 48-floor tower, a majestically restored Chamber of Commerce Shanghai building dating from 1916 and lush gardens which surround the whole area.
The hotel occupies the top eight floors of the tower offering stunning views of the iconic Bund, the sky towers of Pudong’s financial district and the dramatic curvature of Huangpu River and Suzhou Creek.
The lower floors are occupied by The Bvlgari Residences.
As they did for the other Bvlgari properties, the renowned Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel signed this hotel’s design and created a glamorous contemporary masterpiece blending the distinctive Italian refinement of Bvlgari with rich layers of Shanghai history.
The hotel’s 82 guest rooms, including 19 suites which crown the top eight floors of the 48-floor tower, have an average size of over 60 square meters, among the most spacious in the city.
Accessed via a private lift, the exceptional 400 square meter Bvlgari Suite located on the top floor, offers sweeping views of the Shanghai cityscape and can be extended to create a 570 square meter three-bedroom residence by connecting it with an adjoining suite.
