Italian fashion house Versace has announced that it will be designing a new hotel in Macau. Palazzo Versace Macau will be the first Palazzo Versace property in Asia, and is expected to open in 2017.
Housed in a 20-storey tower with a built-up area of over 34,000 sqm, Palazzo Versace Macau will consist of up to 270 guestrooms and suites, one gourmet restaurant, a spa, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, along with retail space.
Located in Cotai, the entertainment district of Macau, the hotel will be developed and managed by local operator Sociedade de Jogos de Macau (“SJM”). Other SJM-managed properties include Grand Lisboa Hotel and Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16. SJM is currently expanding the Cotai Strip, and the group will be committing US$3.22 billion to build a massive integrated resort and casino.
Design for the hotel is currently underway, and construction is expected to commence within the next few months. Versace will provide the stylistic and artistic direction for the interiors, furnishings and amenities, as well as producing "Palazzo Versace standard of service" guidelines for staff.
Dubbed a “fashion branded hotel”, the Palazzo Versace brand currently operates properties solely in Australia, but will be opening a new hotel in Dubai in 2014.
