Palazzo Versace Dubai
Palazzo Versace Dubai is a spectacular hotel situated in the heart of the Culture Village along the shores of the historic Dubai Creek. When we approached the hotel we were pretty amazed by this masterpiece.
The hotel is located just 15 minutes away from Dubai International Airport and less than 10 minutes away from Downtown Dubai, where you can find the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa. You will never get bored in Dubai because it has so many interesting things to offer.
The hotel is spectacular. It has 215 rooms/suites and 169 residences. Palazzo Versace Dubai reminds you of a 16th century Italian Palace with landscaped gardens and lagoon pools all around the hotel. The hotel is truly symbolic of the Versace lifestyle. It has exclusive designs and fabrics from the House of Versace, high ceilings, rich interior, Italian furnishings, and beautiful decor. Every piece of furniture and all the fabrics are designed and tailor-made exclusively for the Palazzo Versace Dubai.

When we arrived at the hotel we were simply amazed by the beauty of the hotel. We were warmly greeted at the reception where we took care of the formalities. Then a friendly lady took us around the hotel. The hotel just opened its doors a few months ago, that is why not all of the restaurants were working at the time we were there. She also showed us the outdoor pools which were beautifully surrounded by palm trees with an unobstructed view of the Dubai skyline. After the brief introductions, she took us to our room.
The room was a dream come true. It was very spacious, with a big king-size bed, lounge area, makeup desk, enormous bathroom with bathtub and walk-in shower. We also had a balcony with incredible views of the Dubai Creek. The whole room was beautifully designed with spectacular furnishing from Versace Home Collection. The uplifting colors of the room, pastel palette of silk furnishings and handcrafted mosaic with marble tiling in the bathroom made the room breathtaking. It was one of the most beautiful rooms we ever stayed at.
Palazzo Versace Dubai has 8 restaurants and bars. Vanitas is a charming and elegant Italian restaurant, perfect for romantic dinner for two. Mosaico is a lovely lounge at the hotel’s lobby, where you can enjoy your afternoon tea. Giardino is an exotic looking restaurant with an amazing terrace where we had our breakfast. The breakfast was out of this world! So good! Right, next to the Giardino you will find a small shisha lounge called Gazebo, where you can enjoy Moroccan, Lebanese, and Turkish mezze.
And the most special restaurant that we have ever visit is called Enigma. It is an avant-garde restaurant where the food is beeing served through a unique journey of captivating stories told by the world’s best chefs. We were so excited to visit this special restaurant and we had the most incredible dinner experience ever. The concept of the restaurant is to host a different chef every three months. But this will be no ordinary cooks, they will all come from Michelin-starred restaurant that are ranked on the world’s Top 50 list. Our chef was Quique DaCosta from a three Michelin star restaurant and the concept was called Vanguard. You can read the about the whole dining experience here>
