Palazzo Versace Hotel

Click on the image to enlarge

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. The fashion branded hotel expresses the exuberance of the Versace soul. Palazzo Versace is a jewel for the world to enjoy
