The Miami Beach condos of W South Beach and Fontainebleau have firmly established themselves as the two of the leading “places to be” in the city during the weekends. Virtually every week brings the announcement of a new opening that may give these two buildings a run for their money and this week is no exception. Except in this case, the new hotspot has been around for quite some time.
The former Miami Beach home of the late fashion designer Gianni Versace is used every so often for hosting private events, but for the most part the mansion has remained largely closed to the public. This will soon be changing as renowned events impresario and restaurateur Barton G. Weiss is turning the mansion into a luxury hotel and restaurant known as The Villa by Barton G. Looks like those aforementioned Miami Beach condos may have some competition after all.
The Villa doesn't try to hide its affluent ambiance. It features British trained butlers who are certified to personally attend to guests throughout their stay. Guests will also be able to make use of the pool, a spa, a pair of private lounges, and The Dining Room at The Villa By Barton G which will also be open to the public during the evening hours. Should you decide to choose The Villa over traditional Miami Beach condos, rates start at $2,100 a night.
