The Bulgari Hotel Tokyo Glimmers Like a Pink Diamond

The lavish stay brings refined Italian touches to the crown floors of the Tokyo Midtown Yaesu skyscraper.

The pink diamond, with its characteristic cherry blossom hue, is among the world’s most precious gems. (This past October, a rare 6.11-carat beauty sold in Japan for 530 million yen, or about $3.36 million, reportedly making it the most expensive gem ever sold in the country.) Its clarity and rarity makes it the perfect touchstone for the new Bulgari Hotel Tokyo, which opened April 4. Tucked into floors 40 through 45 of the Tokyo Midtown Yaesu skyscraper in the Yaesu 2-Chome North District, the hotel offers 98 rooms and suites, including an over-the-top 4,300-square-foot Bulgari Suite with some of the city’s best views. 

Coming back down to earth, Sushi Hōseki offers eight seats overlooking a private Japanese rock garden and cuisine by triple Michelin Star chef Kenji Gyoten. Larger parties can celebrate at the Wedding Salon or a pair of ballrooms, or take in the air via the Bulgari Bar and Terrace Gardens, Il Ristorante-Niko Romito (who also earned three Michelin stars for his Abruzzo restaurant Reale), and the Fireplace Lounge. The famed Bulgari Spa, meanwhile, includes an 82-foot indoor pool of Venetian glass and mosaic, with hand-painted gold ceilings along with full ranges of treatments and therapies to balance the decadent dining. 

It wouldn’t be Bulgari without the Italian touch, of course: interiors are by ACPV Architects Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. And while guests might not find pink diamonds set into the furniture, they will find Japanese black granite bathtubs, Hosoo gold bedspreads, and room ceilings hand-painted with layers of gold.
