What is it? Fea­tured in count­less TV shows, Ver­sace’s Palazzo on Aus­tralia’s Gold Coast is con­sid­ered by many to be the world’s first fully fash­ion-branded ho­tel. What’s so fab? This breath­tak­ing ho­tel decked from top to toe in Ver­sace fab­rics and fur­nish­ings has its own pri­vate 90-berth ma­rina, a mag­nif­i­cent spa, and a pool sur­rounded by lux­u­ri­ous ca­banas with its own sandy beach. What about rooms? 200 rooms and suites have floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows, par­quetry floor­ing and open-plan bath­rooms with huge spa baths. There are also 72 con­do­mini­ums, with vast pri­vate ter­races, sunken lounges, fully equipped kitchens and pri­vate ma­rina berthing, if re­quired. What else should I know? The ho­tel’s three gourmet restau­rants serve a range of care­fully crafted Aus­tralian food treats, while cock­tails and snacks are on the menu of Le Jardin bar. How much? Rooms from Dh1,151 a night, www.palaz­zover­
