The Villa Casa Casuarina
Why We Love This Hotel
- This luxury boutique hotel (only ten suites) is formerly known as the Versace Mansion
- Guests can swim in the "Million Mosaic Pool," which features thousands of 24-karat gold tiles
- Gianni's serves posh Italian cuisine and Sushi by Bou provides an intimate Omakase experience
The Villa Casa Casuarina, built in the 1930s, is known for its intricate Mediterranean revivalist architecture. Pull up to the iron gates of the three-story villa and be transported to otherworldly opulence. The property's ten luxury suites are each individually themed and named.
The Villa Suite, Gianni Versace’s former abode, is the most lavish with two balconies, gold shower fixtures and a truly enormous bed (nine by 12 feet), but the other nine suites are equally as over-the-top. Each boasts Frette linens, Versace fabrics, a Sonos sound system and sleek bathrooms outfitted with Italian marble.
There is a rooftop lounge, an indoor-outdoor Italian restaurant, a sushi restaurant, and a well-appointed spa (complete with an aroma steam room and a meditation lounge).
