Bulgari Hotels & Resorts Unveils Plans for Los Angeles Getaway
The Bulgari Resort Los Angeles, planned for a 2025 debut in the hills of Benedict Canyon, continues to face community opposition.
The resort will feature 58 rooms and suites, eight private estates and the hospitality brand’s signature Bulgari Il Ristorante Niko Romito. The sanctuary also will boast a 10,000-square-foot spa, gym, a cinema and an eight-seat sushi bar. Most of the hotel’s guest rooms and suites will be located in secluded bungalows, while the eight residential estates will range in size from 12,000 to 48,000 square feet, all with at least one acre of private land.
