Located at 2-2-1 Yaesu, Chuo-ku, in the Yaesu 2-Chome North District, the 98-room hotel occupies the 40th to the 45th floor of the Tokyo Midtown Yaesu, a newly built skyscraper in the city.

The new Bulgari Hotel Tokyo was designed by the Italian architecture and interior design practice Acpv Architects. It features a 400-square-metre Bulgari suite, with regular rooms equipped with pieces from Italian luxury residential furniture brands like Maxalto, Flexform and B&B Italia, with touches of Japanese tradition and cutting-edge technology.

The Bulgari Hotel Tokyo is also home to a variety of signature-dining options including Sushi Hoseki, curated by Japanese chef Kenji Gyoten, awarded three Michelin Stars.

Guests will also have the option to eat Italian at a restaurant curated by chef Niko Romito, another celebrated chef with three Michelin Stars. Completing the culinary experience is Bulgari Dolce Boutique, where visitors can enjoy the renewed Bulgari “chocolate gem” or Italian pastries by Romito.

Moreover, on the 45th floor, guests will find the hotel bar where a terrace gives view on Mount Fuji, while on the 40th floor guests will find two drastic ballrooms and a 110-metre Terrace Room.

Finally, a 1000-square-metre Bulgari spa offers nine treatment rooms and a 25-metre indoor pool, alongside a state-of-the-art fitness centre.

“We are proud to add a new gem to the crown of the Bulgari Hotels & Resorts collection with the opening of Bulgari Hotel Tokyo in Japan, a market that has been a strategic market for us for over 30 years,” said Jean-Christophe Babin, Bulgari Group CEO.

“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, and provides us the opportunity to share the Italian luxury experience, design and creativity in an environment which reflects the Bulgari spirit.”

The latest Tokyo opening takes the Bulgari Hotel network to eight locations globally. Looking ahead, four additional Bulgari Hotels are set to open in Rome, Miami, the Maldives and Los Angeles, between 2023 and 2026.
