Mitsui Fudosan Co. Ltd signs an agreement with Bvlgari Hotels & Resorts to open Japan’s first Bvlgari Hotel in the large-scale, mixed-use development planned for the Tokyo Station area. Bvlgari Hotel Tokyo is scheduled to open at the end of 2022.
Bvlgari Hotel Tokyo will occupy the top seven floors, 39th – 45th, of an ultra-skyscraper planned for construction in the Yaesu 2-Chome North District Category-I Urban Redevelopment Project. The hotel will be located in a very central and convenient area at a walking distance to some of the best attractions in town such as the Imperial Palace and the vibrant shopping areas of both Nihombashi and Ginza. Its proximity to the Tokyo Station and the financial districts of Nihombashi and Marunouchi makes it an ideal destination for business as well.
In addition to the Bvlgari hotel, the tower will also be a high-grade mixed-use with offices and retails. The hotel will offer 98 guest rooms in a variety of configurations, mainly twin and double rooms, as well as luxury suites and an extraordinary Bvlgari Suite.
Bvlgari Hotels iconic features such as Il Bar, Il Ristorante, the Fireplace Lounge, all of them with outdoor terrace, will be available for the hotel guests together with Il Cioccolato store, and a dramatic Ballroom including a large outdoor space.
The 1,500 sqm Bvlgari Spa, offering the ultimate wellbeing experience, immersing and innovative treatments, therapies and grooming for both men and women, and including a state-of-the-art fitness centre and 25-metre indoor pool, will add a further luxurious touch to the guests experience.
As with all the Bvlgari Hotels and Resorts, Bvlgari Hotel Tokyo will be designed by the Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, who conveyed Bvlgari’s core values of contemporary design, magnificent craftsmanship and artistic detail to create efficient living spaces reflecting the essence of the Italian most sophisticated style.
Bvlgari Hotels and Resorts is a collection of luxury hotels, and currently includes properties in Milan, London, Bali, Beijing and Dubai. New openings are planned in 2018 in Shanghai and in 2020 in Moscow and Paris. Bvlgari Hotel Tokyo will be the ninth property and the first to open in Japan.
Bvlgari CEO Jean Christophe Babin said: “We are extremely proud to be able to announce the Bvlgari Hotel in Tokyo, as it will be another important step for the Bvlgari Hotels & Resorts project. Japan is such a strategic market where Bvlgari as a brand has been present for 30 years. Jewellery and hospitality combine perfectly to meet Bvlgari’s client’s expectations of a high level of service not only in our brand stores but also when staying in our extraordinary properties offering luxury services in an environment which reflects the Bvlgari spirit. In addition, we are particularly honoured to partner on this extremely exciting project with Mitsui Fudosan, one of the leading Japanese companies in real-estate, while our uncompromising Italian contemporary style in hospitality will create a welcome addition and irresistible experience in the upscale Japanese hotel market.”
