Conceived of as an “urban resort,” Bulgari Hotel Beijing is located in the heart of the exclusive Embassy District of China’s capital city. Designed by the renowned Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, the Hotel rises up from within the Genesis Project, an oasis of tranquility inspired by the fusion of art and nature. The grounds of the Hotel feature two office towers, shopping, and the Tadao Ando-designed Genesis Art Foundation. Set on the banks of the Liangma River, it’s surrounded by sculpted Italian gardens from landscape designer Enzo Enea.
Beyond the property, the nearby Riverbank Amphitheatre is a luxurious setting for open-air concerts, theatre performances and cultural events. The boutiques, restaurants and art galleries of Sanlitun are minutes away, while the 798 Art District — Beijing’s new landmark for urban culture — is a 10-minute drive from the Hotel. The historic attractions of the Lama Temple and the Forbidden City are also nearby and the Hotel can arrange for easy transport via its private fleet of Maseratis.
