Versace announced that its much-anticipated Palazzo Versace Dubai Hotel has opened its doors. Artistic director Donatella Versace has exclusively designed the interiors and furniture for each of the 215 rooms, bringing the universe of well-known Italian brand to life.
Developed in the joint venture with Enshaa Group, the hotel is located on the foreshore of the Dubai Creek and has 215 suites, 169 exclusive condominiums and several signature restaurants. From the ceilings hand-detailed in gold to the marbles and mosaics, the interiors imagine 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.
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 condominiums, ranging from one to six bedrooms, each decorated and furnished in the true Versace style.
“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 Gian Giacomo Ferraris, CEO 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 Ensha 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 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 .”
This is the only second Palazzo Versace to be opened. The first, on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, was the world’s first fashion-branded hotel concept. Following the opening of Palazzo Versace Dubai, the next Palazzo will be built in Macau.
