Bulgari Hotels & Resorts has opened a new property in the heart of Tokyo, situated on the 40th to 45th floors of the Tokyo Midtown Yaesu.
The towering skyscraper overlooks the iconic red brick Tokyo Station and the Imperial Gardens, with views stretching all the way to Mount Fuji.
Designed by Milan-based architectural firm ACPV — Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel — the new hotel offers relaxed elegance in 98 rooms and suites with a luxurious fusion of Italian lifestyle in harmony with local history and culture.
“We are proud to add a new gem to the crown of the Bulgari Hotels & Resorts collection with the opening of the Bulgari Hotel Tokyo in Japan, a market that has been a strategic market for us for over 30 years. Jewelry and hospitality combine perfectly to meet Bulgari’s clients’ expectations of a high level of service not only in our brand stores, but also when staying in our extraordinary properties, providing us with an opportunity to share the Italian luxury experience, design and creativity in an environment which reflects the Bulgari spirit,” enthused Bulgari Group CEO Jean-Christophe Babin.
Jean-Christophe Babin welcomed prominent guests to the inaugural celebrations and was joined for the ribbon cutting ceremony by the governor of Tokyo, the Italian ambassador to Japan, and actress and Bulgari muse Anne Hathaway.
A reception followed for 400 guests, including Japanese actors Ryoko Yonekura and Ken Watanabe and celebrities Kōki and Hikari Mori. Guests were treated to an exceptional experience, including a personal tour of the hotel’s signature spaces, notably the sumptuous 400-square-meter Bulgari Suite, the 1,000-square-meter Bulgari Spa and the spectacular rooftop Bulgari Bar and Terrace Gardens, affording sweeping views of Tokyo.
Faithful to its unique identity, the Italian jeweler links each of its hotels to a precious and rare gem. The new addition is associated with a pink diamond, in honor of the beauty and harmony rooted in Japanese culture, and the famous Sakura pink cherry blossoms that grace the country’s landscape each year.
