Palazzo Versace , Gold Coast

The distinctive vision of Gianni Versace, his audacious commitment to luxury and beauty, influenced his designs and translated into the décor of his homes.

The creation of the world’s first fashion-branded hotel reflects the synergy of perception uniting Gianni Versace S.P.A. and the Sunland Group. Their shared commitment to excellence in design, fine workmanship and the creation of extraordinary environments saw Palazzo Versace welcome its first guests in September 2000.

In a spectacular waterfront setting, every aspect of architecture, ambience, furnishings and ornamentation reflects a level of opulence once confined to the grand hotels of Europe. Richly decorated spaces proclaim the transcendence of Italian design. Singular touches include peerless marbles and mosaics, vaulted ceilings hand-detailed in gold, an antique chandelier that once shed its lustre on the grand State Library of Milan.

Palazzo Versace comprises of 200 light-filled bedrooms and suites in timeless style. Bespoke furnishings, luxurious fabrics, rich parquetry floors, floor to ceiling windows, lavish colourful silks and a “Juliet” balcony inviting the Gold Coast sunshine and azure skies to pour in. Crisp white linen and plush toweling from the Palazzo Versace range, open plan bathroom with couple sized spa bath and Palazzo Versace amenities to spoil you.

Dining is an unforgettable highlight of the Palazzo Versace experience, where award-winning restaurants set the standards for cuisine and service. Fine dining restaurant Vanitas offers an extraordinary gastronomic encounter, complemented by service and a setting of international calibre. Vie Bar + Restaurant, overlooking the private marina and the Broadwater, specialises in contemporary cuisine served in relaxed style. Il Barocco Restaurant provides all day dining, while Le Jardin lobby lounge is a favourite meeting place, for morning coffee, afternoon high teas and late evening cocktails.

Palazzo Versace S.P.A. symbolizing Salus per Aquum was chosen especially for its English translation of 'Health through Water'. This image was the immediate response, when first seeing and feeling the area upon which Palazzo Versace was to be built. Nestled between the calm of the Broadwater on one side and the vitality of the ocean on the other, it is the perfect health destination. Now it is time to escape to a world like no other, the sensual retreat of Palazzo Versace S.P.A. awaits you.
