Japan will welcome its first Bulgari Hotel by the end of 2022. The Bulgari Hotel Tokyo will occupy the top seven floors – 39th to 45th – of an ultra-skyscraper planned for the Tokyo Station area.

The project is a partnership between Bulgari and leading global real-estate company Mitsui Fudosan. Bulgari CEO Jean Christophe Babin said the opening of the property will be a major milestone for the luxury company.

Japan is such a strategic market where Bulgari as a brand has been present for 30 years. Jewellery and hospitality combine perfectly to meet Bulgari’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,” he said.

As with other Bulgari Hotels, the one in Tokyo will be designed by Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. The hotel will offer 98 guest accommodations in a variety of configurations, mainly twin and double rooms, as well as luxury suites.

The hotel will be located within walking distance to some of the best attractions in Tokyo including the Imperial Palace, and the vibrant shopping areas of Nihombashi and Ginza. Its proximity to the Tokyo Station and financial districts of Nihombashi and Marunouchi also makes it an ideal destination for business.

Bulgari Hotels And Resorts is a collection of luxury hotels that includes properties in Milan, London, Bali, Beijing and Dubai.
