Reservations at the ready, ladies – Palazzo Versace Dubai has finally opened its doors. The property, which features 215 rooms and 169 condominiums, is only the second in the Palazzo Versace portfolio (the first is in Queensland, Australia) and, with its uninterrupted views of Dubai Creek, is set to be one of the most luxurious addresses in the region.
The rooms and furniture were designed exclusively by Donatella herself and the entire property is an immersion into the world of the luxury Italian brand. From iconic motifs to vibrant prints and textiles – many of which have been exclusively designed for the Dubai venue – and a 1000sqm marble mosaic floor in the grand lobby, a stay within the walls of the Palazzo Versace is a sensory experience.
The hotel also plays home to a spa and eight restaurants. Our pick? Q’s Bar, from music legend Quincy Jones, which will feature a roster of incredible acts picked by Mr. Jones himself, in a chic, intimate speakeasy. The perfect spot welcome in the weekend, we say.
If you’ve got plans this weekend, we suggest you cancel them and book a night or two here before word gets out about this (not so) little gem in our very own backyard. We’ll see you by the pool. — Maddison Glendinning
