A hotel tailored to the most demanding. A first class Paris-Rome that leaves you with a smile on your lips and memories as precious as a necklace set with diamonds. Bvlgari in Paris is necessarily a palace!
A lot of ink has been spilled on the opening of this hotel in the Golden Triangle. Already present in Milan, Bali or Dubai, the brand made a majestic entrance in the capital of luxury and the art of living. The best of Italian craftsmanship flourishes in the innate refinement of French taste, all in keeping with the brand’s jewelery heritage. The successful implementation of the establishment has definitively crowned Paris with undisputed leadership in terms of exceptional hotels. Novelty effect for the address inaugurated last December? Fleeting enthusiasm around the holiday-at-home trend?
No, the Bvlgari Hotel Paris appeals to lovers of architecture and precious stones as well as touches the hearts of fashionistas, delights gourmets, satisfies esthetes and surprises those who have already seen it all. As soon as you walk through the door, you abandon your last preconceived ideas if an iota of doubt has crossed your mind…
Located on Avenue George V, the five-star establishment fits elegantly into the stylistic continuum of the district with its Haussmannian façade. The Parentesi motif, inspired by the pavement of the streets of the Eternal City and declined in the jewelery collection of the same name, unfolds like a mineral carpet throughout the building. The tone is set: aesthetics and experience come together in the language of Molière and Dante. The centerpiece lobby is adorned in warm beige and saffron, two hues a jeweler’s fetish, and sparkles with a string of Murano blown glass lights. Glamor mixes with goldsmithing through the portrait of star Monica Vitti enthroned at the entrance.
Immortalized by the French-Chinese artist Yan Pei-Ming, the transalpine icon wears a Bulgari necklace or the art of the wink. There is also the eight-pointed star at the reception, a symbol that all roads lead to Rome. Next to the reception, the magnificent hall that gives you a preview of your vacation. We snuggled into comfortable sofas cradled by the soft crackling of the fire in the cast-iron fireplace, the spirit is already far away… Here you are in the land of beauty surrounded by varnished eucalyptus woodwork, silk murals, marble, granite from Zimbabwe and ceramics from Gio Ponti. Remarkable works precisely from his 1925 collection, precisely for which he won the Grand Prize at the Universal Exhibition in Paris.
At the maneuver of this daring design, Patricia Viel and Antonio Citterio, the duo of the house inseparable from the lifestyle universe of the brand. The architects seal the armistice between Paris and Rome: two capitals in constant competition to prevail in creativity, style, history, fashion, gastronomy or art, and that find harmony here, in the residential sequence. », such is the bias of the leadership.
Sleeping at the Bvlgari Hotel Paris inevitably has an invigorating taste. 76 rooms and suites offer a dazzling array to behold morning, noon and night. A sense of detail permeates every space: the pattern of the chevron rugs echoes our Hungarian knit parquet floors, typical of elegant Parisian interiors; the unmatched comfort of the bedding is adorned with printed paisley checks by Bvlgari; sliding doors made of a metal lattice, inserted between two glass plates, delimit the living room from the night area, reinforcing the feeling of living in a residential apartment. A dressing table with a double mirror and a large dressing room invite long stays; As for the bathroom, this piece looks like a jewelry box with its glass work etched with Bvlgari’s Serpenti Constellation motif on the bathtub using the technique of the great master glassmaker Lalique.
In the absence of puncturing your outfits with an XXL emerald brooch with Bvlgari diamonds in the Liz Taylor style, you can take a bath with the brand’s logo, snuggle up in its silky plaid and taste these delicious logo chocolates prepared for you. The world may well collapse, here everything is luxury, calm and voluptuousness!
A state of mind that reaches its maximum expression in the penthouse, unanimously renamed LA suite. We can easily imagine that it could serve as a framework for the remake of the The Devil Wears Prada or the next Instagram reunion of an iconic rock star couple. 1000 square meters, of which 400 are reserved for the apartment, all with windows, are distributed on the two upper floors of the hotel. Connected by a monumental staircase and offering a spectacular 360° view of Paris’s most famous monuments, the penthouse apartment resembles a weightless glass vessel. The furnishings are in tune, while an incredible garden that invites la dolce vita definitely propels the suite to the rank of a masterpiece!
Here, pines, apple trees, magnolias, there, currants, thyme and lavender, an unlikely Mediterranean Eden floating in the Parisian sky. Personnalisable à l’envie, vous pourrez y organiser tous les formats d’experiences comme des dîners de haut vol, des soirées exclusives, des journées bien-être avec séances de yoga et sport en plein air…C’est les mille et une nuits in Paris.
In epicurean direction, seductive restaurant. Chef Niko Romito, a prophet in his own country, delights La Botte fans with his signature dishes that have everyone in Milan and now Paris going wild. On the menu at Il Ristorante: Milanese cutlet with perfect breadcrumbs, onion soup au gratin with Parmesan, vegetable lasagna, spaghetti and pomodoro al dente, tiramisu in its own way… dishes that are the result of years of exploration to master them like a master.
We had lunch and dinner, first to taste the creations of the prodigy chef with three stars in Italy, but also to enjoy the family atmosphere tinged with elegance. The place vibrates at any time of the day thanks to the communicative enthusiasm of his brigade, so much so that one stays there forever!
If there is another place where you would like to prolong the festivities ad vitam æternam, it is the spa! Covered in jade green mosaics, in stone from Venice’s Vicenza, the walls of this temple of beauty ooze hedonism. Time for a couture treatment done at Augustinus Bader or Bellefontaine (there are five different partner brands), an invigorating session around a whirlpool bath, a 25-meter return trip, the guest truly retreats from the world. In this 1,300-square-meter sanctuary, you feel cut off from everything—except yourself!
At the end of your stay, we can only endorse this beautiful definition of Sylvain Ercoli, general manager of the establishment: ” We are not a hotel group, but a luxury brand that produces jewelry, leather goods, perfumes. We make hotels in the same way with no other concern than beauty and seduction”.
In record time, Bvlgari Hotel Paris has earned its accolade as the best place in the capital!
