Top fashion designer hotels for a lavish haute vacation
The Palazzo Versace Dubai Hotel just opened its doors in November this year, and has every reason to be at the top of your to-stay list. Artistic Director Donatella Versace translates the Versace lifestyle into an interior where every detail is exquisitely opulent: find yourself marveling at ceilings hand-detailed in gold, as well as the finest marbles and mosaics. Iconic motifs of Versace runs throughout the design, such as the Medusa head, the Greek Key and the house's legendary prints.
Palazzo Fendi, Rome
This month sees the reopening of the Palazzo Fendi in Rome, an international destination which includes the world's largest Fendi flagship store with an in-house fur atelier, the Palazzo Privé, a luxurious apartment for VIP designed by Dimore Studio, Fendi Private Suites, its first boutique hotel with seven suites, and Rome's first international restaurant, Zuma. Bringing together the Maison's strong connection for contemporary design, modern architecture and young artists, it has the perfect location too—standing tall in front of Via Condotti and the iconic Spanish Steps.
Hotel du Petit Moulin, Paris
Designed exclusively by Christian Lacroix, the Hotel du Petit Moulin is a traveller's gem located amid the art galleries and fashion boutiques in the Haut Marais district. Each luxury room and suite possesses a unique charm and character, and quirky perspectives run through the 17th-century-building-turned-couture-hotel, all while keeping with a picturesque, "old Paris" style.
Bulgari Hotel, London
Experience calm amongst the hustle and bustle in London's Bulgari Hotel. Located in Knightsbridge on the edge of Hyde Park, this luxury hotel exudes elegance with austere, contemporary architecture and Bulgari's flair for design—signature use of silver throughout the hotel pays a subtle tribute to the luxury house's beginning as a Roman silversmith hotel. Expect nothing less than world-class service in this haven in the centre of the city.
Tortuga Bay Resort, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
A tropical wonder amongst the list of city establishments, this Caribbean beach resort houses a beautiful interior of understated elegance designed by Oscar de la Renta, whom gave the plantation-style suites luxurious finishing touches with Frette linens, designer amenities as well as natural wicker and wood furnishings. It is nestled in a 1,500-acre ecological reserve, a tranquil space set against luscious, exotic surroundings.
