Fashion plays a major part in my life. It would come as no surprise that I would be curious to stay at the world’s first fashion-branded hotel Palazzo Versace. My dream came true during my mini getaway to the Gold Coast!

There was marbles, mosaics, beautiful furnishings and ornaments everywhere I looked. It all added to the ambience of the hotel. It took me back in time to memories of my travels to grand hotels in Europe.
