Palazzo Versace Dubai, the second hotel under the Versace fashion house, is expected to be finished before the end of next March, according to the developer Enshaa. The 215-room property also started recruiting last month. It will include 169 luxury condominiums with one to six bedrooms and D1 Residential Tower. It joins two other fashion houses Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa and Bulgari, which will manage a hotel under development on Jumeirah Bay Island.
Palazzo Versace Dubai is located within the Dubai Culture Village project. The infrastructure work for 9 million square feet of the Culture Village project is also expected to complete early next year, according to its master developer Dubai Properties Group.
The project, located between Garhoud Bridge and Business Bay Crossing, will eventually have residential, commercial, retail, entertainment and cultural components. A 3.8-kilometere creekside promenade walkway will connect it to a souq and marina.
Billed as an “ultra-luxury hotel”, Palazzo Versace will have furniture and fittings designed by Donatella Versace, the daughter of the founder of the fashion house.
While room rates at the property are yet to be disclosed, the only other Palazzao Versace is on the Gold Coast, Australia.
