Luxury hospitality chain Bulgari Hotels & Resorts (a Marriott International brand) has signed an agreement with Russian investor Alexey Bogachev that will see the brand make its debut in Russia.
The Bulgari Hotel Moscow is expected to open in 2019, just 300 m from Moscow’s Red Square and the Kremlin. The 65-room hotel is being developed by Storm Properties and will become the world’s seventh Bulgari-branded hotel – there are currently three hotels in operation in Milan, Bali, and London and three properties are due to open in Shanghai, Beijing and Dubai in 2017.
“We are extremely proud to be able to announce the Bulgari Hotel in Moscow, as it will be another important step for the Bulgari Hotels & Resorts project,” said Bulgari’s chief executive officer, Jean-Christophe Babin. “Of course, it also is a precious occasion of visibility in such a strategic market for luxury goods, and follows the opening of the Bulgari flagship store in Petrovka. There is a reason these two industry areas (jewellery and hotels) combine perfectly: Bulgari’s clients expect a high level of service they can get not only in the brand stores, but also when staying in an extraordinary location with luxury services, in an environment that reflects the Bulgari spirit,” he added.
