Jet-setting across the globe may be off the cards for the foreseeable future, but one can still dream of romantic sojourns spent in the city of lights, drinking fine red wine and indulging in buttery pâtisseries while overlooking the streets of Paris from a quaint, yet ever-so-small balcony. Yes, that may be the most clichéd sentence about Paris you have ever read, but six weeks of lockdown can really diminish one’s sense of reality.
And yet awareness of this doesn’t make the desire for travel any less apparent, especially when Italian jewellery brand, Bvlgari, are opening another one of their much-lauded luxury hotels in one of Paris’ most sought after locales, the Triangle d’Or. Home to high-end fashion boutiques, fine dining and luxury apartments, the area has a glam vibe along with an equally glam price tag – real estate can reportedly reach up to 30,000 euros per square metre there.
Promising to “represent an irresistible Roman jeweller hospitality experience in the Parisian upscale hotel market,” the hotel will sit on Avenue George V and will have 76 rooms, with most of them being suites, and is being designed by Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, and the renowned French architects Valode & Pistre, bringing Bvlgari’s Italian roots together with the hotel’s Parisian home.
Staying true to the city’s distinctive architecture, using limestone and the unique Haussmanian style, the renewed exterior brings the building into the 21st Century with its rationalistic design. Inside will be all the grandeur we’ve come to expect with a brand like Bvlgari, including a spa, 25-metre pool, as well as a restaurant and bar opening out onto a courtyard garden.
While an official opening date for the hotel is yet to be released (no doubt paused by the global pandemic), let’s hope it is ready for reservations by the time we book our next flights.
