The New Palazzo Versace Macau Blends Iconic Versace Designs With Macau Traditions

Palazzo Versace Macau is the first Palazzo Versace luxury hotel in Asia and second worldwide following Palazzo Versace Dubai. The hotel boasts 271 rooms and suites across 12 floors, each infused with Versace’s Milanese heritage and adorned with the brand’s signature flair. The codes of the brand are prominently showcased throughout, featuring the Medusa, geometric Greca motif and Barocco print alongside Chinese symbols of the chrysanthemum flower and ornate dragon, which are unique to Palazzo Versace Macau. During the grand opening, guests were welcomed by none other than the celebrated fashion designer, Donatella Versace herself.


The Mercedes-Maybach GLS Is An Uncompromising Approach To Passenger Luxury

The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4MATIC (from RM1.9 million) is built on the familiar SUV platform of the Mercedes-Benz GLS, but eschews the practicality of seven seats and cavernous cargo room in favour of an uncompromising approach to the comfort of its occupants. Seating up to four, the two rear passengers have unparalleled legroom as well as multi-contour seats and leg-rests minutely adjustable to find one’s ideal comfort. Massage function is a given, of course, along with a refrigerator compartment. The interior is swathed in luxurious, diamond-stitched leather. Externally, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS announces its road presence with a vertical slat grille and signature two- tone finish with pinstripe. Along with the latest MBUX operating system and an advanced suite of driver assistance systems, it is equipped with a turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine with 550bhp, and will go 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds.
