Palazzo Versace chooses Technogym for the ultimate wellbeing lifestyle

Palazzo Versace chooses Technogym for the ultimate wellbeing lifestyle
September 7, 2011

Luxury designer hotel Palazzo Versace Gold Coast has chosen Technogym equipment to equip its newly opened Fitness & Wellbeing Centre.

Australia's first and only fashion branded hotel spent $500,000 creating the world class Centre which features Technogym's leading edge Wellness System. The first of its kind in a luxury hotel in Australia, the Centre also features Excite+ cardio equipment with the Visioweb digital entertainment platform, a selection of pin-loaded and plate loaded strength equipment, FLEXability pieces and a Kinesis One for complete functional training.

S.P.A Fitness & Wellbeing Manager Kylie Smith explains "when searching for the best equipment for our new Fitness & Wellbeing Centre at Palazzo Versace Gold Coast we found that Technogym was internationally recognised as the leading fitness brand.

"(As) we wanted a product that would allow our members and guests access to the ultimate wellbeing lifestyle (we) believe that Technogym equipment is the ideal tool to help facilitate this. It is ergonomically designed, offers variety, is results oriented, tech savvy and suits everyone, which is exactly what we were looking for."

The exclusive new equipment combined with an array of luxurious member facilities demonstrates that Palazzo Versace is now not only a premiere accommodation and dining destination but also home to a leading health and fitness facility.

Palazzo Versace's Fitness & Wellbeing Centre is offering a range of bespoke membership levels which have been designed with the total wellbeing experience in mind. Membership level inclusions range from luxe accommodation, deep tissue massages, S.P.A time pampers, poolside Water Salon retreats and personal training sessions, as well as VIP benefits throughout the hotel, such as 10% off food and beverage, 20% off Palazzo Versace S.P.A treatments and access to the hotels steam and sauna facilities. Palazzo Versace is offering numerous membership levels for the Fitness &

Wellbeing Centre starting from classic access to platinum membership for the full Palazzo Versace wellness experience.

The new Fitness & Wellbeing Centre will be complimentary to guests of the hotel and adds to Palazzo Versace's already impressive list of guest amenities. Guests will be able to improve their fitness whilst enjoying the expanded space, which includes stylish parquetry flooring and diamond shape mirrors, combined with the most sought after exercise equipment in the world by Technogym, all luxuriously appointed in the classic Versace style which the property is famous for.

The hotel incorporates 200 classically elegant rooms and suites, 72 neighbouring condominiums, three award-winning restaurants and a private marina, all on a historic site on the edge of the Gold Coast Broadwater.

The Sunland Group together with Gianni Versace SpA had a bold vision to create the world's first fashion-branded hotel and residence experience, and in September 2000, the $300 million hotel opened its doors.

Since then, Palazzo Versace has amassed a multitude of awards including most recently:

• Best Australian Hotel in Luxury Travel Magazine's 2010 Gold List for the fourth consecutive year
• Best Luxury Hotel at the 2010 World Luxury Hotel Awards
• Australasia's Leading Hotel and Australasia's Leading Spa Resort at the 2010 World Travel Awards
