A quiet oasis in the middle of pulsing Milano. A breezy sea-side sanctuary in the heat of Uluwatu, Bali. A luxurious space overlooking Hyde Park in flashy Knightsbridge, London.
With Shanghai to open in 2015, the Bulgari Hotels folio is growing at a rapid speed. Hotels are a relatively new offshoot to the Italian jewellery house, with the first one opening in 2004. I made it a priority to visit the beautiful Bulgari Bali (the #2 place to stay in the whole of Asia according to Smart Travel Asia magazine) when I was there last year.
Luxury Group, the luxury division of the Marriott hotel chain, operates the Bulgari hotels and resorts (along with the Ritz-Carlton ones) and its no surprise then, that everything about this hotel stands up to what you’d expect from the name. The infinity pool dropping off to a vast ocean and poolside decking space surrounded by tropical plants make it a real sanctuary.
