Bulgari’s sixth hotel opens with 2,000sq m spa

by Jane Kitchen | 22 Jun 2018

The newest Bulgari Hotel has opened in Shanghai, featuring a 2,000sq m (21,500sq ft) spa created with the guidance of spa and wellness consultants GOCO Hospitality.

Designed by Italian firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, the sixth Bulgari hotel includes a 48-storey tower that adjoins the restored Chamber of Commerce Shanghai building, which was originally completed in 1916.

“Shanghai is one of the most vivacious cities in the world and we hope this architectural masterpiece coupled with the magnificence of the perfectly restored Chamber Of Commerce will truly put The Bulgari Hotel Shanghai on the map as one of the city’s most iconic destinations,” said Jean-Christophe Babin, Bulgari CEO. “Hotels represent for Bulgari the opportunity to share the Italian luxury experience, design and creativity around the world and as of now, we are proud to have a second new 'home' in China.”

The extensive spa features five single treatment rooms, a double treatment room, a foot massage room and a couples’ spa suite that provides exclusive access to a Roman-inspired hot tub and private sauna.

These are complemented by a 25m signature Bulgari indoor heated swimming pool and a vitality pool.

“It has been a great pleasure to work so closely with the Bulgari team, especially the visionaries of Silvio Ursini and Attilio Marro, along with Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, La Mer and Amala to create Shanghai’s newest and most luxurious spa experience,” said Ingo Schweder, founder and CEO of GOCO Hospitality.

“We are also excitedly working on the spas at the Bulgari Moscow and Bulgari Tokyo, which are sure to make a big impression when they debut.”
