Bulgari Opening of a Bulgari Hotel in Shanghai
Following Milan, London, Bali, Beijing and Dubai, Bulgari Hotels & Resorts adds a sixth jewel to its collection with a new hotel in China's most populous city.
Located on the banks of Suzhou Creek, and part of the riverside urban revitalization project of SUHE CREEK, the Bulgari Hotel Shanghai is the sixth jewel of Bulgari’s hospitality collection.

Balancing nature, contemporary design and heritage architecture, the property combines a 48-floor tower, a restored Chamber of Commerce Shanghai building dating from 1916 and lush gardens which surround the whole area. The hotel occupies the top 8 floors of the Tower offering stunning views of the iconic Bund, the sky towers of Pudong’s financial district and the curvature of Huangpu River and Suzhou Creek. The lower floors are occupied by The Bulgari Residences. As they did for the other Bulgari properties, the Italian architectural firm ‘Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel’ signed this hotel’s contemporary and glamourous design blending the Italian refinement of Bulgari with rich layers of Shanghai history.
The hotel’s 82 crafted guestrooms, 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. Guests experience the comfort of modern Italian furnishings custom-made by revered Italian brands such as B&B, Maxalto, Flos and Flexform, along with state-of-the-art technology. Accessed via a private lift, the 400 square meter Bulgari 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.
The Bulgari Hotel Shanghai is home to six signature-dining options located both in the hotel tower and in the adjacent historic Chamber of Commerce Shanghai. The Italian Il Ristorante-Niko Romito is curated by chef Niko Romito with three Michelin stars for his Reale restaurant in Abruzzo and presents a contemporary Italian cooking in his 47th floor restaurant overlooking the city lights. At the same floor, Il Bar with its oval counter is the place to be for sophisticated sipping and socialising, while the La Terrazza on the rooftop offers an Italian style informal menu with spellbinding views of Shanghai’s skyline.

On the ground floor, China’s first Bulgari Il Cioccolato boutique invites guests to indulge in a luxury sweet treat while the refined ambiance of the Lobby Lounge, where a menu of afternoon tea and aperitivo is available all day, opens up to Il Giardino, an outdoor space which welcomes guests with a selection of wines and Italian gelato. Also on the ground floor, a Bulgari jewellery store displays the brand’s creations.

The hotel’s 2,000-square-metre BVLGARI Spa and fitness centre is a harmonious retreat to balance the body, mind and spirit in elegant Italian style. The spa offers eight spa treatment rooms, sauna and relaxation rooms, a manicure and pedicure salon, barber and hairdresser, plus a 25-metre heated indoor pool and vitality pools, and the bespoke WORKSHOP GYMNASIUM Fitness Studio.

Adjacent to the hotel tower, the historic Chamber of Commerce Shanghai, built in 1916 and completely restored to evoke memories of its glorious past, houses a 500 square meter Bulgari Ballroom with triple-height ceilings, the haute-cuisine Chinese restaurant Bao Li Xuan and The Whisky Bar.

Bao Li Xuan serves Cantonese classics and local Shanghainese specialties, while the sophisticated Whisky Bar located on the same floor presents an extensive collection of premium whiskies and spirits to be tasted in a warm and distiguished athmosphere akin to a member’s club. Built in Neoclassical Renaissance style, the statuesque landmark forms a serendipitous connection to Bulgari’s Roman roots and pairs up with an archway gate from 1920, used as VIPs entrance.

Enjoying an exclusive setting amid private gardens, historic buildings and art galleries, the hotel is just three minutes’ drive from the iconic Bund.

Guests can conveniently visit signature attractions, such as Yu Garden, Xintiandi district and the contemporary galleries of M50 in the comfort of a Maserati limousine. When arriving in the city by air, the hotel is just 45 minutes from Shanghai Pudong International Airport, or 35 minutes from Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport.
