When it comes to top-line, designer brands, a small few have debuted their own hotels. From sumptuous rooms to elegant lobbies, below, we’ve highlighted three designer hotels we absolutely love.
1️⃣ A Neoclassical-style edifice with touches of old Arabian-like architecture on the sea, Palazzo Versace Dubai (@palazzoversacedubai) is one of the UAE’s most treasured hotels. The hotel’s 215 rooms and suites, as well as common areas, contain a treasure trove of fabrics and furniture exclusively designed by Versace. The hotel has eight restaurants and bars, each with a contrasting Versace-themed décor. We especially love Enigma, the Persian-inspired restaurant.
2️⃣ The Armani Hotel Milano (@armanihotelmilano) is in Quadrilatero della Moda, Milan’s most notable fashion district. Revered fashion designer, Giorgio Armani, conceptualized the hotel as a “home-away-from-home” — of course if your home was equipped with luxe Armani amenities. Guests looking for the ultimate upgrade will enjoy the “Armani Signature Suite – Cinema,” which has its own private movie theater.
3️⃣ Set in Dubai’s Jumeira Bay, the Bvlgari Resort Dubai (@bulgarihotels) transfers Mediterranean-style design to the Middle East, especially with its partly transparent ocean-inspired façade, soaring windows, and signature Bvlgari marble. The hotel also hosts the brand’s first-ever Yacht Club, overlooking a 46-boat harbor from its premier Italian restaurant, members lounge, outdoor pool, and bar. Guests looking to relax will be tantalized by The Bvlgari Spa, a facility that, among many other splendors, includes a hammam and iconic vitality pool that draws inspiration from the ancient Caracalla Roman baths.
