Condé Nast Traveler announced in October the results of its 32nd annual Readers’ Choice Awards, with Palazzo Versace Dubai recognised as one of the Best Hotels in the Middle East. Listed No.2 in the American magazine’s survey this year, Palazzo Versace Dubai moved three rankings up since the 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards. The recognitions were decided by more than 600,000 people around the world who took part in the American magazine’s annual survey.


“We are honoured to be recognised again by Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards and to be number two following the most iconic and internationally known hotel”, said Sandra Tikal, General Manager of Palazzo Versace Dubai.

The architectural style of Palazzo Versace Dubai hotel and residences represents the merging of a traditional neo-classical Italian palace with recognisable Arabic architectural elements. The interiors showcase the Versace lifestyle through the contemporary eyes of Artistic Director Donatella Versace. The iconic motifs of Versace are present in each detail such as the Medusa head, the Greek key, and the House’s legendary prints, with many designs created exclusively for Palazzo Versace Dubai.

The furniture has been carefully designed to provide an inner experience across the hotel and residences, ensuring that guests and homeowners alike are fully immersed in the Versace lifestyle. A series of artworks set in the hallways feature sketches of the fabulous Atelier Versace gowns. The result is spectacular and developed in context with Palazzo Versace’s natural surroundings and local heritage.

The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.” The 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards are published exclusively on Condé Nast Traveler’s website at

Palazzo Versace Dubai comes second after Burj Al Arab, Dubai and before Mandarin Oriental, Jumeira and David Citadel Hotel in Jerusalem.
