Bulgari Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement with Russian investor Alexey Bogachev to bring the luxury hospitality brand to Moscow.
Moscow-based real estate development company Storm Properties is developer of the project.
Plans for the Bulgari Hotel in Moscow have been announced, and it is expected to open in 2019.
It will stand as the world’s seventh Bulgari Hotel, following the opening of Milan in 2004, Bali in 2006, London in 2012, and the Shanghai, Beijing and Dubai Hotels anticipated for 2017.
The agreement was signed in the presence of Alexey Bogachev, investor of the project, and Jean-Christophe Babin, chief executive, Bulgari Group, in Moscow.
The hotel will be located in a prestigious luxury area, just 300 meters from the city’s landmarks such as the historic Kremlin and the Red Square.
It will comprise 65 rooms and suites, including an extraordinary 300-square meter Bulgari Suite with a unique 600-square meter rooftop terrace and will offer magnificent views of the Moscow rooftops and of the Kremlin.
A full range of luxury facilities, such as the signature Bulgari restaurant and bar and a 1,600 square meter spa with 25 meter swimming pool, will be at the disposal of the hotel guests and residents.
The hotel building is part of a full block development between Bolshaya Nikitskaya and Sredniy Kislovskiy, which will comprise luxury residences and townhouses as well.
Bogachev said: “I am very excited about the opportunity to cooperate with Bulgari Hotels and Resorts, which is the world’s synonymous of outstanding quality and sophisticated taste among the most exacting clients.
“The combination of Bulgari Hotel and the residences will create a new level of quality for the Moscow market.”
