The 98 room hotel will be designed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel.
Real estate giant Mitsui Fudosan Co. Ltd has inked inked an agreement 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 and 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.
As with other Bvlgari sites the hotel will be designed by the Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and will be located within walking distance of the Imperial Palace and the shopping areas of both Nihombashi and Ginza. Its proximity to the Tokyo Station and the financial districts of Nihombashi and Marunouchi will make it attractive for business use too.
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.
The usual Bvlgari features such as Il Bar, Il Ristorante and the fireplace Lounge will all be available for the hotel guests, together with Il Cioccolato store, and a Ballroom including a large outdoor space. A 1,500 sqm Bvlgari Spa will include a state-of-the-art fitness centre and 25-metre indoor pool.
The Bvlgari Hotels and Resorts portfolio 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 its 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 clients 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.”
