With this first hotel in the Land of the Rising Sun, the eighth “jewel” of the Bulgari Hotels & Resorts collection is marked. Opened on April 4th, Bulgari Hotel Tokyo is the first Bulgari hotel in Japan, occupying the 40th to 45th floors of Tokyo Midtown Yaesu, an ultra-high-rise building in the northern district of Yaesu 2-Chome.
The hotel overlooks the fascinating history and natural surroundings of the Imperial Palace gardens, while offering impressive views of Tokyo, including Mount Fuji on the horizon. Named after the 17th-century Dutch adventurer Jan Joosten van Lodensteyn, known in Japanese as Yayōsu, the Yaesu district has recently become one of the city’s most attractive areas for both luxury and business stays.
Located just a short distance from Tokyo’s iconic red-brick station and the Nihombashi and Marunouchi shopping districts, the Bulgari Hotel Tokyo is perfectly situated between the city’s best attractions and the vibrant shopping area of Ginza.
Like all Bulgari Hotels & Resorts, the Italian architecture and interior design studio ACPV Architects Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel was chosen to carry out the interior design of this new hotel, which conveys the brand’s core values: contemporary design, superior craftsmanship and great artistic detail to create efficient spaces that reflect the essence of the most sophisticated Italian style.
The hotel’s 98 exquisitely decorated rooms and suites – using leading Italian luxury home furnishings brands such as Maxalto, Flexform and B&B Italia – include the exceptional Bulgari Suite, with some of the best views in the city. Covering 400 square meters – and offering modern Italian design with hints of Japanese tradition, along with state-of-the-art technology – this Bulgari Suite is one of the largest suites in Tokyo and can be further expanded by connecting to an adjacent suite.
In true Bulgari Hotels & Resorts style, Bulgari Hotel Tokyo is home to a wide range of unique dining options. The uniqueness and ultra-exclusive environment are the essence of the unique culinary journey that Sushi Hōseki offers. With just eight seats overlooking a private Japanese rock garden – with iconic cultural references such as an old pine tree and the ishi-dōrō, an 18th-century stone lantern –, the restaurant is curated by Japanese chef Kenji Gyoten, awarded three Michelin stars when at Fukuoka’s Sushi Gyoten, and offers a memorable dining experience using Japan’s finest ingredients.
The Italian Il Ristorante – Niko Romito, curated by chef Niko Romito, one of the most celebrated chefs in the world with three Michelin stars for his restaurant Reale, in Abruzzo, presents a meticulous canon of contemporary Italian cuisine in a seductive setting overlooking the lights of the city and that accommodates up to eighty diners. Located on the way to this restaurant, the Lounge – with its soft armchairs and a cozy fireplace – is the most inviting place to gather.
The emblematic Bulgari Bar is located on the 45th floor of the tower. Here, it is possible to taste signature drinks inside, where a handmade mosaic representing a “garden of wonders” frames the counter, or while enjoying the magical sunset on the two semi-covered outdoor terraces, with wide views of the city on both sides.
