Business Hotel, Dubai Creek Location
Among the pointy high-rise sprawl of Dubai, Palazzo Versace attempts the form of a 16th century Italian Palace with elements of Arabian architecture and UAE bling in Dubai Creek. With an entrance the humbles even The Burj a grand motor court lead to a airy lobby etched in marble floors with grand white columns and quintessential gold-leaf furnishings often with emblazed Medussa. A visual progression, and step-up, from the franchise fashion hoteliers questionable debut along Australia's Gold Coast, Palazzo Versace seems a good fit with the often flashy-Emirate, located in the Culture Village that's 10-minutes from Burj Khalifa and Downtown Dubai. Common areas are a showcase for designs and fabrics from the House of Versace, juxtaposed with walls of glass that face a series of three dramatic lagoon pools trimmed in mosaic tile among reflection ponds and tranquil waterfront. A series of eight eateries includes traditional Arabic, Italian, Japanese and continental dining options on par with the city's top resort properties - wearing Versace however is optional.
For better or worse, each of the property’s 215 hotel rooms and suites, and 169 residences offer furnishings designed and tailor-made by the House of Versace exclusively for the Palazzo Versace Hotel in Dubai. Entry-level guest room emote classic Italian design with herringbone floors and more modern color palette of creams and neutrals that balance the sometimes overpowering prints and embroidered fabrics. Guests of upgraded rooms like Grand Suites, Signature Suites and Imperial Suites enjoy an additional concierge lounge with all-day food and drink options in addition to personal concierge and butler service.
