A Bvlgari Hotel is scheduled to open in Paris, in 2021, following new openings in Beijing, Dubai and Shanghai. The hotel is located at 30 Avenue George V and comprises of 76 rooms, most of them suites, and a full range of luxury facilities including a spa with a 25-metre pool and a Bvlgari restaurant and bar opening to a charming al fresco courtyard garden. Set on an exquisite corner of the Triangle d’Or, the hotel has been designed by the renowned Parisian architects Valode & Pistre. The restyling of the building combines a classic Parisian Haussmann-style with contemporary architectural design.
The Cheval Blanc brand was created in 2006 and has high-end properties in Courchevel, the Maldives, Saint-Barthelemy and Saint Tropez. Another is due to open towards the end of the year in former art-deco department store La Samaritaine in Paris - a few steps away from the Louvre and the Marais, in front of the Left Bank. The 72-room and suites - designed by Peter Marino is due to open in the spring. It will have a seventh-floor seasonal Mediterranean gourmet restaurant by the acclaimed three-Michelin starred chef Arnaud Donckele - who is also the chef at the Vague d’Or in Cheval Blanc St-Tropez. There's also a Dior Spa.
This latest opening of the hotel and members' club chain, is taking shape behind a handsome and historic Pigalle facade, in what was once the home of Jean Cocteau. The design is set to recall Paris’s bohemian heyday - from the early 20th Century - with low-level lighting and rich textures. Think very bohemian and eclectic. The building houses a charming courtyard, a sumptuous cinema for late-night screenings, and upstairs, no two bedrooms are alike alongside club lounges and restaurants. There's also rumours of a Soho Farmhouse-style project in the pipeline, slated to open on the Les Bordes estate in the Loire Valley.
