Palazzo Versace Dubai now open
Palazzo Versace Dubai, the emirate’s latest luxury hotel, has officially opened its doors to guests. The long-anticipated Versace-branded hotel, which is a joint venture between the House of Versace and the region’s premier developer Enshaa Group, promises to be the most luxurious hotel the Middle East has ever seen.
Reminiscent of a 16th century Italian Palace, Palazzo Versace Dubai is a Neoclassical masterpiece with subtle traces of Arabian architecture. Featuring a striking entrance, high ceilings, landscaped gardens, and interiors designed by Artistic director Donatella Versace, the hotel is truly symbolic of the Versace lifestyle.
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. Every detail is exquisite, from the ceilings hand-detailed in gold, to the finest marbles and mosaics.
Each of the hotel’s eight restaurants and bars is designed to have an al fresco terrace to reflect the heritage of Palazzos, where the internal court was the informal space to meet, dine and enjoy the weather.
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.
The three outdoor pools are decorated with mosaic tiles and surrounded by palm trees and flowers. The beautifully landscaped gardens and unobstructed views of the Dubai Creek and skyline, make this luxury hotel an ideal venue for weddings and social events in Dubai.
“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”. Giacomo added.
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. As always, we are especially thankful to our team who have been working hard to create a beautiful end product for our valued guests and to help provide them with an unforgettable experience during their visit.”
Situated in the heart of the city, Palazzo Versace Dubai is at the centre of the new Culture Village, located on a prime waterfront plot with unobstructed views of the Dubai Creek. It is the second Palazzo Versace, globally. The first, which holds the title as the world’s first fashion branded hotel concept is on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. Following the opening of Palazzo Versace Dubai, the next Palazzo will be built in Macau.
