Palazzo Versace Dubai

The UAE's Neoclassical masterpiece

Palazzo Versace Dubai just may be one of the most striking spots in the city. It’s not a surprise, given that the hotel bears the name of the famous fashion label. The regal property was envisioned to look like a 16th-century Italian palace, with neoclassical and Arabian influences found throughout.

Of course, the interiors are filled with Versace flourishes. Each piece of sumptuous furniture and fabric in the classic rooms was specially designed and custom-made by the brand. It’s a piece of Italy right in Dubai’s Culture Village.

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The haute hotel is filled with sumptuous design. In the lobby, the mosaic floor mimics the Persian carpet in Gianni Versace’s former mansion. And Giardino restaurant’s day beds, cushions and wallpaper may look familiar — they are covered in the same tropical-leaf Versace print that Jennifer Lopez scandalously wore to the Grammys back in 2000.
  • Inside the luxury hotel, you’ll find legendary record producer Quincy Jones’s first lounge. Head to Q’s Bar and Lounge to hear music from the next big musical stars.
  • Retreat to the sleek and stylish spa for some relaxation. Our pick is the purifying Ceremonial Hammam treatment, which includes a black soap application, a body exfoliation, scalp massage and hair washing with stretching. 
  • Vantias serves rustic Italian fare like seafood risotto in bold blue and gold Versace plates. The vibe is decidedly romantic with deep-red padded chairs, white tablecloths and candlelight.

Things to Know
  • This high-fashion hotel is family friendly. It has a bright kids club where little ones can play video games, do arts and crafts and watch movies. 
  • If you want to do some shopping, hitch a ride with the hotel shuttle to visit the Festival City Mall and the Dubai Mall.
  • You might spy a falcon on a Versace-designed stand in the lobby in the afternoons. The hotel encourages you go take photos with the creature, which is the UAE's national bird.
The Rooms

  • The lavish rooms come with silk furnishings, parquet floors and palette of turquoise, blue, tan, gold, and salmon. Of course, everything you see is from the Versace Home Collection.
  • Get vistas of Dubai Creek or Culture Village from your own balcony or terrace.
  • Creamy Carrera marble and handcrafted mosaic backsplashes near the tub give the bathrooms a luxe Italian feel. There are also walk-in rainforest showers.
  • Some suites give you access to the Executive Lounge, which offers food spreads throughout the day, complimentary use of the business center facilities, free garment pressings and many more perks.
