These days, living the superstar life isn’t only for superstars. At Palazzo Versace, you can experience pure Italian magnificence whenever you want.
Let’s check out what Palazzo Versace in Australia has for you!
The scenery of Palazzo Versace
Versace enthusiasts have come to this hotel since it debuted in 2000 to see firsthand its grandiose designs that remain loyal to the late designer Gianni Versace’s legacy. The property is decorated with Italian-tiled fountains, Versace trademarks, and palms, providing a taste of Milan to the Gold Coast.
There is a Versace store on-site for quick high-end retail therapy. A member of staff is always on hand at the entryway to unlock a gold door for a visitor. The foyer has oversized flower arrangements, Versace floor tiles, circular settees, and floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as an antique chandelier that originally hung in Milan’s State Library.
A trip along the plum-carpeted halls, scented with oil burners, is like entering a fashion venue with Versace ads framed on the walls. The five-pearl hotel caters to guests looking for a beautiful, tranquil holiday or business getaway away from the raucous partying of Surfers Paradise, yet with spectacular décor.
The Medusa head emblem may be found throughout the property, including the magnificent circular driveway with columns encircling the pathway leading into the four-story hotel.
A Versace-inspired pebble-mosaic road leads to the hotel, which is located in a calm part of Main Beach on a private dock. The Marina Mirage, which has stores, cafes, fishing charters, boat tours, and bicycle rentals, is a one-minute walk away. The hotel is a five-minute drive from Sea World. Surfers Paradise Beach is also only a five-minute walk away.
By car, it takes 10 minutes to get to the main tourist district of Cavill Avenue, which has a plethora of stores and food options. Visitors may visit the nearby SkyPoint Observation Deck, which contains a restaurant on the top level. The hotel is roughly a 10-minute drive from cruises and whale watching trips on the Nerang River. Brisbane International Airport is a one-hour drive away.
The wall-mounted images are intriguing as you wander the corridors: a history of fashion designed by Versace. The ‘basic’ Palazzo room is very carefully built to be as big and beautiful as possible in what is actually not that large a space after all the requirements are crammed in – giant king-sized bed, obligatory gigantic spa and separate shower.
A large spa bath, wide-open seats, and Versace cosmetics, all surrounded by high-quality fixtures and mirrors, all coated in characteristic Versace gold. It’s a really comfy room with elevated fittings.
The delicious food
There are three restaurants at the Palazzo. Il Barocco is the hotel’s primary restaurant, serving breakfast in the morning, lunch during the day, and a seafood feast at night. The breakfast is said to be the greatest in Australia.
The seafood buffet is an excellent way to keep out of Versace shape. The buffet includes all of the expected salads, as well as hot dishes, prawns, fish, and bugs; all of which are of high quality and fresh, and are complemented by a wide selection of wines.
Vanitas is a fine dining restaurant that serves supper from Tuesday through Saturday; reservations are advised. It has a formidable reputation for offering high-quality food and an unrivalled wine list. Vie is the bar/restaurant that makes use of Versace’s location overlooking the waterfront to provide a la carte supper and lunch every day.
Pools and spa
The Palazzo Versace elevates poolside relaxation to a new degree of luxury. Its lagoon pool flows through the grounds, through cabanas with lunch and beverage service and Versace-stamped umbrellas on a man-made sandy beach.
A hot tub is available on the terrace. The spa has an indoor pool as well as all of the regular pampering treatments. The gym is tiny but well-equipped with current equipment.
Is it worth it?
There is no other hotel in Australia that can elicit the same level of identification and emotion. Sometimes there’s amazement, occasionally there’s inspiration, and sometimes there’s distaste verging on loathing. It’s a taste of the rockstar and lavish lifestyle right here in Australia. And, with the appropriate timing and decent outcomes, it truly is for everyone.
- Even for a five-star facility, luxury rooms and services are expensive.
- Some room furniture exhibit indications of wear and tear.
- Guests had conflicting feelings about the dining and bar services.
