Bvlgari Hotel Shanghai
Why we love it: Upscale Italian-inspired environs in Shanghai’s SUHE CREEK Project The Highlights: - Sweeping city views throughout the property - Luxe, spacious rooms - A generously sized spa and fitness center with premier products This over-the-top property opened doors in June 2018, making it the most recent addition to Bvlgari’s hotel portfolio, which also has locations in Milan, London
, Dubai, Bali, and Beijing
. Situated on the Suhe Creek waterfront, the hotel forms part of the SUHE CREEK project, a riverside urban revitalization comprised of residential, retail, and art spaces in the city’s North Bund Area. Seven different types of rooms and suites are available for booking and boast a variety of covetable features, including walk-in rain showers, Toto heated toilets, and 24-hour butler service (not to mention floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the historic Bund and iconic Oriental Pearl Tower). Elements like black lacquer cupboards and Tuscan Calacatta marble tabletops can be credited to renowned Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, whose team had a mission of evoking classic and contemporary Chinese and Italian design throughout the 48-story tower. The rooms are thought to be some of the most spacious in the city—a stateliness that continues at the 2,000-square-metre Bvlgari Spa and fitness center, where eight treatment rooms, a 25-meter pool, and a lineup of La Mer products await. When hunger strikes, choose from two main dining options: Il Ristorante, a 47th-floor eatery with modern Italian fare from Michelin-starred chef Niko Romito, and Bao Li Xuan, a Chinese fine dining restaurant on the hotel’s third floor.
