As summer slowly sets in, Buro 24/7 Middle East offers a new 'spotlight on suites' series. First stop? Bulgari Hotel & Residences, London.

Set in the midst of London's Knightsbridge district, the Bulgari Hotel & Residences is the first luxury hotel to be built in the city since the 70s. Designed by renowned architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners, the hotel's structure pays homage to both the fine traditions of Bulgari and London.

The lounge

The exterior of the hotel is created from Portland Stone, the same material used in the making of London's most iconic landmarks including Buckingham Palace and the National Gallery. Inside, Bulgari's silver heritage shines through with accents collecting all around the hotels in the form of solid silver chandeliers and bespoke silk curtains, which were inspired by a silver
brooch made by Bulgari's Founder Sotirio Bulgari. Speaking of bespoke, Italian artisans were commissioned to produce a majority of the fine pieces found within the hotel.

Silver chandeliers

Upon arrival take your pick from 85 rooms and suites, each one featuring lush materials including mahogany, white marble, silk walls and carpets made from the finest wool. Opt for the suites and be greeted by additional luxurious elements including a fireplace, vintage Moroccan carpets, accents of ivory onyx, modern lighting fixtures made from Murano glass and finally, terraces that overlook Knightsbridge.

Bulgari suite

Self-sufficient, the hotel boasts Rivea, the informal restaurant by master chef Alain Ducasse. Alongside Rivea are other upscale dining options including Il Bar, where you can indulge in a quintessential British pastime: afternoon tea. Then relax in the 47-seat Richard Attenborough screening room, where hundreds of films can be availed. For relaxation, head to the Bulgari Spa where you'll find swimming pools as well as 12 treatment rooms.
