Inaugurated in June 2018, the Bulgari Hotel Shanghai is the sixth gem in the Bulgari hotel collection. It is located on the banks of Suhe Creek, a rapidly evolving urban area created by OCT, the leading Chinese real estate developer, and encompassing residences, art spaces and parks.
Skilfully combining nature, contemporary design and traditional architecture, the complex comprises a 48-floor tower, the Shanghai Chamber of Commerce of which the original 1916 has been magnificently restored, as well as splendid gardens lining the area. The sky-scraper offers incredible views of the iconic Bund, the Pudong financial district and the spectacular bend in the River Huangpu as well as Suhe Creek. The eight top floors are dedicated to the hotel, while the Bulgari Residences occupy the lower floors.
