Bulgari Hotel Beijing: A Sophisticated Oasis

Where else but a Bulgari Hotel would you find an armored car out front delivering a haul of jewelry for the brand’s Wild Pop High Jewelry Collection show? This is exactly what we encountered on our departure from the Bulgari Hotel Beijing, an oasis in the middle of a massive city surrounded by a park-like setting of trees and bordered by the Liangma River. Located in the heart of the Beijing’s Embassy District, next-door is the Genesis Art Foundation, nearby is the National Art Museum of China as well as upscale shopping and the fashionable bars of Sanlitun, and the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square is only a 25-minute drive away.

The hotel’s luxuriously sleek and contemporary Italian ambiance is soothing yet exciting. In the lobby are the front desk and an inviting living room area with low-slung sofas and chairs in smoky earthy hues. Gorgeous coffee table books are scattered around for perusing, and walls are hung with photos of celebrities wearing Bulgari pieces. Special touches include exquisite hand blown Murano lamps and a serene bamboo garden.

Sleek and Relaxing Accommodations
Our Premium Guest Room was quite spacious (in fact some of the largest rooms in Beijing can be found at this hotel) with 650 square feet and sweeping views of the river and Beijing’s skyline through floor-to-ceiling windows. Everything is so meticulously perfect, from the leather, lacquered, and woven rattan walls, lightly finished blond wood flooring, marble coffee table, rattan sofa, oversized TV, and high-tech touch lighting system.

In the bath is a vanity dressing table with loads of drawer space, walk-through closet, wet area with deep soaking granite tub and rain shower, separate toilet area with heated Toto washlet, double sinks set in black granite above which is an in-mirror TV, and, of course, Bulgari bath products! I particularly love the inclusive mini-bar filled with sodas, juice, bottled water, and beer.

If you are looking for more space consider the Deluxe Suite with over 1,300 square feet, a spacious separate bedroom, corner dining table, and soaking tub with a view.

Il Ristorante, overseen by three-Michelin-starred chef Niko Romito, focuses on simplistic and contemporary Italian cuisine with over-the-top service. Think updated renditions of traditional lasagna, or a crispy suckling pig with orange caramel sauce, or perhaps a dish of black cod with leek sauce and crispy spinach.

Don’t miss pre- or post-dinner drinks next-door at Il Bar. Take a seat at their signature hammered and polished copper bar and have the magician of a bartender whip you up one of the specialty cocktails or an Italian apertivo. When the weather is nice head outside to the relaxing terrace for drinks overlooking the sculpted gardens and Chinese pines.

Spa and Gym
Additional facilities include the two-story Bulgari Spa with 11 treatment rooms and featuring traditional Chinese techniques such as Himalayan Crystal Healing and Qi Balancing. Your eyes will bug out at the spectacular 25-metre heated indoor pool surrounded by relaxing spa cabana beds and a glittering mosaic whirlpool with waterfall—it’s as if you are visiting a modern Roman bath. And next-door is WORKSHOP Gymnasium with Technogym and Kenesis equipment; if there’s time schedule a session or two with one of their expert instructors.
