Sneak peak of the new Palazzo Versace in Dubai
Palazzo Versace Dubai, developed in joint venture with Enshaa Group, one of the region’s premier developers, will be the most luxurious hotel the Middle East has ever seen. Artistic director Donatella Versace has exclusively designed the interiors and furniture for each of the 215 rooms, bringing the universe of Versace truly to life.
Every detail is exquisite, from the ceilings hand-detailed in gold, to the finest marbles and mosaics. The interiors imagine the Versace lifestyle through the contemporary eye of Artistic Director Donatella Versace, where everything is opulent. Throughout the design run the iconic motifs of Versace, such as the Medusa head, the Greek Key and the house’s legendary prints, with many designs created exclusively for the Palazzo Versace Dubai.
The grand lobby features an extraordinary 1000sqm marble mosaic floor, with bespoke furniture and textiles decorated with peacocks, falcons and horses. For all-day dining, the Giardino has marble flooring and columns, with the walls decorated in a special edition of the iconic Jungle print from Versace Wallpaper collection. Meanwhile the Vanitas restaurant is like a classical Italian palace, with handmade wall decorations featuring the Grottesche Italiane.
Palazzo Versace Dubai will also be home to 169 residences, ranging from one to six bedrooms, each decorated and furnished in the true Versace style. Situated in the heart of the city, Palazzo Versace Dubai is at the center of the new Culture Village, located on a prime waterfront plot with unobstructed views of the Dubai Creek.
"Versace is a renowned fashion, luxury and lifestyle Company. Since the very beginning we’ve encompassed many product categories - from clothing to accessories, from luxury goods to the home collection - to convey the uniqueness and iconic style of the brand” said Mr Gian Giacomo Ferraris, Chief Executive Officer of Versace. “In 2000, we have pioneered the luxury fashion branded hotels opening the first Palazzo Versace Gold Coast, Australia and today we are proud to bring the ultimate Versace lifestyle in Dubai with the new hotel."
"The fine and luxurious designs by Versace will be present in every detail of the living environment, and luxury will become a lifestyle. Speaking on the hotel opening, master developer ENSHAA PSC CEO, Raza Jafar, said, “This is a very exciting time for the Palazzo Versace chain, and we are thrilled to bring this iconic hotel to the exquisite, cosmopolitan city of Dubai."
This is the second Palazzo. The first, on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, is the world’s first fashion branded hotel concept. Following the opening of Palazzo Versace Dubai, the next Palazzo will be built in Macau.
