Renowned throughout the world as one of the key examples of exquisite Italian design, Versace’s distinct style has graced the high-fashion catwalks and countless celebrities and their homes since the brand’s establishment in 1972. Celebrated for their ornate patterns and rich colour combinations, the fashion house’s signature opulent glamour has also been translated into luxury hotels in both Dubai and Australia’s Gold Coast. First opening its doors in 2000, the Palazzo Versace Gold Coast was the first ever fashion branded-hotel and has been setting the standard for all other hotels of its kind since.
Boasting a waterfront setting at Australia’s acclaimed premier leisure destination, the area offers an enviable sub-tropical environment along with a cosmopolitan way of life. Perfectly perched between the glittering Gold Coast Broadwater and the Pacific Ocean, the Palazzo Versace allows guests to immerse themselves in the indulgent Versace lifestyle. From blue water yachting & magnificent fishing, to world class tennis, golfing and the out of this world beaches which give this part of Australia its name, the Gold Coast is a holiday destination like no other. The ultimate leisure resort, the last four years alone has seen the Palazzo Versace awarded an assortment of awards collected only by the leading establishments across the globe and in 2015 it was named as Australia’s Leading Hotel at the World Travel Awards.
The 200 light-filled rooms and suites have been crafted using bespoke Versace Home furnishings with each space adorned with colourful fabrics and silks, with floor to ceiling windows and Juliet balconies inviting the unmatched sunshine and azure skies to fill the room. A wellbeing resort as much as a leisure destination, the Palazzo Versace also benefits from an Aurora SPA Retreat. Created by Lyndall Mitchell over 15 years ago, Aurora SPAs are expertly designed to help clients relax and unwind through a range of high performance, award-winning treatments.
When guests aren’t soaking up the sunny Gold Coast sights or relaxing in the spa, they can be found at one of the hotel’s many award-winning eateries. The signature restaurant Vanitas provides an extraordinary gastronomic experience, whilst the Vie Bar + Restaurant overlooking the Gold Coast Broadwater showcases contemporary flavours in a distinctive, chic space. Famed for lavish seafood buffets and classical dishes, II Barocco Restaurant is the epitome of sophisticated casual dining and once the meal has drawn to a close the Le Jardin bar is the place to be to sample this season’s cocktails or high tea in style.
The Palazzo Versace decadent design must be seen to be experienced and more information can be found on the hotel’s website.
