Donatella Pimps Dubai: The Palazzo Versace Hotel
If you can’t get enough of all things Italian (and all things Versace – that would definitely help), then we’ve found you the perfect destination for your next vacanza.
Every inch of the 214 rooms at the Palazzo Versace Dubai Hotel have been rammed full of furniture and finishes designed by none other than fashion’s flashiest diva herself, Donatella Versace.
The second Versace hotel to have been built–the other is putting the gold back into the Australian Gold Coast–the Palazzo Dubai sports all the sexy glamour you’d expect from the Italian label. Check out the Rosenthal-meets-Versace tableware collection, the Versace linen collection, and of course all the Greek keys and medusa heads that one large building can handle.
With unobstructed views of the Dubai Creek, the hotel is part of the new Dubai development known as ‘Culture Village’, housing opera, ballet, theatre and fashion shows, with art, music, dance and pottery academies on site. In addition to the two hundred hotel rooms, there are two wings (Ala Destra and Ala Sinistra) that have an extra 169 condominiums.
We advise any shrinking violets to steer clear because there’s tonnes to keep all budding Donatella’s busy. Italian and Lebanese restaurants, a ballroom, lounge bar, Versace boutique, spa, gym, indoor swimming pool, beach and outdoor lagoon.
