Expert Review

One of the first in the new-millennium wave of fashion-branded hotels (opened in 2000), pizzazz is replete at Palazzo Versace, situated on Australia's Gold Coast in Southern Queensland. Donatella, Creative Director and sister of the late and legendary Gianni Versace, oversaw every detail of the resort's opulent, neo-classical décor - from the imported Italian marble columns in the vaulted foyer to the selection of Gianni's own designs and artwork gracing the walls. Every item in the 204 carefully appointed rooms and suites (plus 72 nearby condominiums) - from the furnishings to the crystal in each private bar - is "unmistakably Versace," created either especially for the hotel or derived from the brand's home collection. Pillow menus, free Internet, and complimentary bottles of men's and women's perfumes are gracious touches. Nearly 30 pools blanket the property (including a heated saltwater lagoon with its own sandy beach) in addition to a 90-slip private marina. The spa offers poolside tai-chi classes, and everything from seaplane tours of the Great Barrier Reef to Outback excursions can be arranged. Did we mention there's shopping? An on-site Versace boutique, of course.
