Luxury at its finest.

Palazzo Versace Hotel

When you think of Versace, you probably think about their gawdy fashion line.  Well, it looks like they have expanded to the hotel industry as well.  As you can imagine, all of the furnishings and decor are from the Versace home collection.  

 

The photo above is from their latest resort in Dubai.  It features a “refrigerated beach” and will have man made breeze, to simulate an ocean breeze.  Dubai is super hot, so having this cool oasis will be a treat for their hotel guests.

 

If you’re ever looking to drop some $$$ on a nice vacation, try checking out Dubai.  They have an abundance of museum worthy hotels, buildings, and attractions that are spectacular.  If you haven’t already heard, they have a chain of palm tree shaped islands, indoor ski resort, and the swanky sail shaped resort hotel.  Money + dreams + creativity + more money = Dubai land!

SLS Hotel…my favorite! (Beverly Hills)

SLS is definitely a fun and new hot spot in Bev. Hills.  It’s just right down the street from Sofitel on La Cienaga.  Since the grand opening weeks ago, I’ve been there twice for drinks and desserts.

 

Drinks to try @ Bar Centro:

So far, I’m in love with the “Magic Mojito”, which a minty mojito poured on top of cotton candy!  Yes, I said cotton candy!  The flavors are amazing!  

Our next favorite drink is the “Strawberry Magarita w/Dry Ice”.  This concoction was made like any other margarita, accept they added dry ice!  You could see a cloud of smoke come out of the blender.  It was really cool!  When it was finally finished, the texture looked liked gelato.  The bartendar finally topped it off with pop rocks candy.  This drink was a bit strong, but the the presentation was amazing.

 

Desserts you must try @ the Patisserie:

–  24k chocolate cake

–  Yogurt w/pop rocks
