Versace celebrates the common ground between fashion and hospitality: good taste. The maison has taken exclusivity to the next level with its all-new Palazzo Versace Hotel and Resort in Dubai.

As the second Versace resort following the first one on the Gold Coast, Australia, the five-star property is located at the centre of the Dubai Cultural Village.

The new hotel has an exterior resembling a 16th-century Italian palace with subtle Arabian touches. Italian luxury is extended into the 215 rooms, with furniture and interiors designed by Donatella Versace.

Luxury fashion houses branch out into interior design and home collections

For the grand opening, Versace also brought its couture collection straight from Paris Fashion Week and allowed its Emirates clientele to meet with the atelier team and review the collection throughout the week. Exclusive couture service was also provided by couturiers from Milan, and a portion of proceeds from the orders will go to a local charity called Dubai Cares.
