Bulgari Brings Luxury Hospitality Brand to Moscow
- Jun 01, 2016
Moscow—Bulgari Hotels & Resorts and Russian investor Alexey Bogachev recently signed an agreement to bring the luxury hospitality brand to Moscow. Local real estate development company Storm Properties was selected to develop the 65-key upscale hotel, scheduled for opening in 2019.
The hotel will feature 65 rooms and suites, including a 3,300-square-foot Bulgari Suite with a 6500-square-foot rooftop terrace offering a view of Moscow rooftops and the Kremlin. Luxury facilities such as the signature Bulgari restaurant and bar, along with a 17,200-square-foot spa with an 82-foot swimming pool will be available for guests. The hospitality building is part of a full block development between Bolshaya Nikitskaya and Sredniy Kislovskiy, which will comprise luxury residences and townhouses as well.
Located in a prestigious area, the new Bulgari hotel will be situated adjacent to the Moscow State Conservatory P. I. Tchaikovsky, one of the most important music universities in the world, and in close proximity to various city landmarks such as the historic Kremlin and the Red Square. Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners, in collaboration with Russian architectural bureau ATRIUM, was selected to design the Bulgari Hotel in Moscow. Design influence is focused on mixing traditional and contemporary themes while reflecting the design and style of the surrounding area. The property was the former residence of a noble family, and later home to the musicians from the Conservatory P. I. Tchaikovsky.
“We are extremely proud to be able to announce the Bulgari Hotel in Moscow, as it will be another important step for the Bulgari Hotels & Resorts project. Of course, it also is a precious occasion of visibility in such a strategic market for luxury goods, and follows the opening of the Bulgari flagship store in Petrovka,” said in prepared remarks Jean-Christophe Babin, CEO at Bulgari. “There is a reason these two industry areas (jewelry and hotels) combine perfectly: Bulgari’s clients expect a high level of service they can get not only in the brand stores, but also when staying in an extraordinary location with luxury services, in an environment that reflects the Bulgari spirit. In addition, the partnership on this extremely exciting project is with Storm Properties, a leading company in the real-estate field in Russia, and will ensure once again the highest levels of quality and innovation.”
“The reconstruction of a whole block in Moscow’s historic centre is an operation of great cultural and economic value to the city. The project will consist of the conservative restoration, the harmonization of variously dated façades, the renovation of the internal buildings and the valorisation of the splendid internal courtyard,” said Antonio Citterio.
