Palazzo Versace Dubai

img_2818-1

Palazzo Versace Dubai is a World Class Luxury Hotel dripping with opulence, designer Versace decor and fabrics in every interior space. The mosaic in the lobby consists of 1.5 million hand-cut pieces, a homage to an original Gianni Versace design. All the murals were hand painted by Italian artists purposely flown in to create a magnificent masterpiece. You immediately notice the Versace iconic Medusa as soon as you walk into the splendour of this grande Hotel. The building itself is a masterpiece with a very Italian Palatial vibe.

Step into the Hotel and you’ll definitely catch the #LivingPalazzoVersace feeling.

The furniture and fabric in the rooms and suites is tailor-made by Versace, so basically you are “sitting on Versace, sleeping in Versace and wearing Versace”.

The Living Palazzo Versace bliss does not end on the inside, step outside and you’ll see the gorgeous landscaped gardens and a stunning view of the Dubai Creek. There are 3 outdoor pools that are well maintained, surrounded by palm trees and beautiful people relaxing on the sun beds. The Palazzo Versace Dubai is easily accessible, about 15 minutes away from Dubai International Airport and 8 minutes from the Burj Khalifa.

THE SPA

The SPA is located on the ground floor of the Palazzo Versace Dubai Hotel. In keeping with the hotel’s beautiful decor, the Versace theme is prominent in all the small details from the walls to the toiletries. With 2 Moroccan Hammams , 7 indulgent treatment rooms, a luxurious Spa suite with a private Jacuzzi, monsoon rain shower, professional beauty therapists and a modern nail studio there’s not much else you need to get a world class Versace Spa experience.

The treatment list is definitely worth mentioning as it’s not your generic street beauty parlour selection. The Spa Brochure contains an array of the most exclusive treatments using the finest luxurious global brands. The holistic massages are to nothing but spectacular, the facials promise to renew and rejuvenate depending on the specific treatment. The Spa provides designated male and female thermal suites containing a steam room, sauna, spa pool, steam room, relaxation lounge and immaculate changing rooms.

My Spa Treatment.

“I’ll have the GOLD and CAVIAR ” please, thank you… (90-Minutes. Price AED1,000)

I chose to have the Gold and Caviar treatment which is a regenerative facial. As the name suggests, it is sheer indulgent bliss with opulent luxurious products.

All that Glitters is more than just gold…it actually rejuvenates and repairs the skin

My Beauty Therapist a Kenyan lady (name withdrawn on request) was extremely friendly (it probably helped that I told her about my Kenyan background and spoke fluent Swahili). She explained that each product was expertly chosen to renew and repair my skin.

A brilliant vitaskin ultrasound was going to be used on my face, the LED light therapy has been proven to reduce inflammation it penetrates the skin on a cellular level to create astounding results. The Led light takes some getting used to (even with goggles on and eyes shut I felt very aware of its glare) not unpleasant but not as relaxing as the deep sculpting massage which helps to tone facial muscles and smooth the skin.

I was reassured and made to feel like I was in expert hands. My skin care therapist then talked me through the facial step by step as I had requested, giving details of the cutting edge equipment and world class products used on my face. I loved how unfazed they were by my endless questions. When I questioned the ‘extravagance’ of Gold & Caviar, I was simply told what every woman I know needs to hear “your face is precious and it deserves nothing but the best”.

Excellent world Class Service 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

At the end of the facial I looked and felt amazing. Not only did my face have a new glow I was extremely impressed by the overall service. The Palazzo Versace Dubai Hotel was outstanding in every sense. The Hotel had a Kids service that took care of my 2 little boys and kept them entertained at the outdoor pool on a lovely sunny day while I had my facial. I met them after and they were happy. Looking very cozy in their little Versace bath robes and swimsuits. Now if that is not worth a dazzling 5 stars then clearly nothing is.

Who would it suit?

Everyone deserves to have such mindblowing opulence and luxury atleast once in their lives.

Reality Check…

Most suited to Celebrities, the Glitterati of the UAE, high fashion connoissieurs, World class Millionaires/Billionaires and anyone who can spend large amounts of money without flinching at the bill. Let’s be honest…You would not expect any less from #TeamVersace after all the grand opening was launched by none other than Donatella Versace and her fabulous hollywood circle.
