The Villa By Barton G

The Villa By Barton G

*****

You’ll feel like fashion royalty at The Villa by Barton G hotel, a Mediterranean-tinged luxury retreat in Miami Beach with dedicated butler service and a fine-dining restaurant. Event impresario Barton G Weiss lavished $1m on Versace’s former mansion, transforming it into a private palace right on South Beach. Palladian-style gilding, gargantuan custom-made beds, hand-painted trompe l’oeil, heavy tasseled fabrics, opulent marble bathrooms – more is definitely more at this exclusive Florida enclave.

Highlights:

  • Dramatic decor befitting Gianni Versace’s former home

  • Fine-dining restaurant with world-class wine list

  • Private butlers and nothing-is-too-much-trouble service

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

‘It’s the second most-photographed house in the United States,’ the manager tells us. Best known as Gianni Versace’s former villa, the storied Thirties’ Casa Casuarina is located smack in the middle of Ocean Drive in Miami Beach, preceded only by the White House in photographic popularity, pipping Graceland. Arriving at the villa’s heavily guarded gates we sidestep a gaggle of tourists eager to be snapped in the spot where the designer was murdered on the morning of July 15, 1997.

We’re taking residence in one of the villa’s 10 extraordinary suites, submitting to a luxury routine unlike any

Dining information

Restaurant:

The Dining Room at Villa by Barton G serves continental cuisine with flourishes that have people flocking here less for flavours but mostly the theatre of it all. Ingredients such as veal and foie gras set a tone, which isn’t for everyone, and salads served in a dry-ice mist complete your wildest fantasies. Wine is well-chosen and delicious but that comes at a price.

Top table:

A table in the corner of the Dining Room is great for people-watching in this pretty and hand-painted interior delicately decorated with pebbles and mosaic tiles. When it’s balmy you may prefer to sup on the terrace overlooking the beautifully lit pool.

Last orders:

Dinner is served 7pm–11pm.

Room service:

Light continental offerings are available such as hamburgers, sandwiches and cheese plates. You can ask them to rustle you up most things around the clock.

Hotel bar:

Head to the Onyx bar for cosy cocktails, with your camera at the ready for the liquid nitrogen-enhanced affairs. Or sneak up to the Rooftop Lounge for a nightcap under the stars.
