Palazzo Versace Dubai

Palazzo Versace Dubai

Italian design at its finest

ARTICLE BY : Abha Shah


Cultures collide beautifully in Dubai, like New Year’s fireworks. Indian, Moroccan, Chinese; each doorway propels you into another corner of the world.

For a proper Italian experience head to Palazzo Versace, a hotel that’s more like a piece of art than a luxury resort. It’s where attention to detail and supreme service combine to build an exceptional experience. 

Plus there’s wall-to-wall Versace, from bedspreads to cutlery.

Pool paradise
If poolside lounging is top of your honeymoon wishlist, make a beeline for one of the three outdoor pools. Fringed with canopied cabanas and loungers in the shade of palm trees, they’re the perfect spot to people-watch and top up your tan. Thirsty? Grab a drink from the pool cafés.

Signature suite
The suite is a tribute to the brand’s glam lifestyle, with every piece of furniture and fabric designed and made by Versace for the Palazzo Versace Dubai. The space feels royal; think parquet floors, mosaics and a gleaming marble-clad bathroom. You’ll probably spend the first few hours Instagramming every impossibly perfect surface, and who would blame you? Not us.

As with the rest of the resort, the restaurants and eateries are a tribute to Versace’s signature style. There’s Moroccan, Turkish, Lebanese, and of course, Italian, on the menu with dishes served from the finest custom-made Versace china.

Best of Brunch
Giardino restaurant offers a selection of local market ingredients transformed into sensational dishes on live-cooking stations. It’s also home to an international brunch on Fridays, serving traditional plates, as well as Arabic, Chinese, Indian and Italian cuisines to the tune of a live band.

The Bar 
Come cocktail hour (or earlier - hey, you’re on honeymoon), head over to La Vita, a chic bar oozing with sophistication. Sink into the leather sofas with a glass of Italian wine or sit at the bar to watch the mixologists in their element.

Signature suites aside, there are plenty of zzz options at Palazzo Versace. The hotel boasts 215 hotel rooms and suites, plus 169 residences (luxury one to six-bed apartments to stick on your fantasy ‘When-We-Win-The-Lottery’ shopping list). All the rooms and suites uphold the same standards of excellence, so you’ll have an incredible stay whatever you choose. However, if you’re planning a longer getaway, the suites offer more space plus perks such as the swanky Executive Lounge.

The Spa
Located on the ground floor with a distinctly under-the-sea vibe, the spa and gym is awash with oceanic features; think marble, mother-of-pearl details and turquoise mosaics, all bathed in a soothing blue light. There’s enough to keep you occupied for an afternoon of self-care; sweat it out in the steam room and saunas before taking a dip in the plunge pool. Treatment-wise, you can book in for everything from Gold and Caviar facials to luxury ceremonial massages.
Must try: If you need to let go of the last of the wedding planning stress, you’ll find sweet relief in the spa’s Aromatherapy Massage. The 90min treatment (also available in 120min for extra indulgence) will see you fall asleep and awake as a new woman.
