Bulgari Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement to open a hotel in London in 2012, strengthening its visibility in the U.K.
The luxury hotel in Knightsbridge will be the third hotel project for Bulgari Hotels & Resorts, following the opening of the Bulgari Hotel in Milan in 2004 and of the Bulgari Resort in Bali in 2006.
The hotel will comprise 85 rooms and suites, including seven Bulgari suites which will be more than 2,152 sq ft in size. The hotel will also feature a large ballroom, a private cinema and a 21,527 sq ft spa and fitness centre with 25 meter indoor pool.
Francesco Trapani, CEO of Bulgari Group, said: “This hotel, the first new build luxury hotel in London for over 40 years, will be another important element in the Bulgari Hotels & Resorts project. I’m convinced that it will be a further statement of our brand in the UK, which is a strategic market for luxury goods.”
