Located at the edge of the Australian Gold Coast's Broadwater, the property is awash in brilliant jewel tones, rich patterned fabrics, Versace furniture and the finest marble and mosaics. The vaulted ceilings are hand-detailed in gold, with the late Gianni's artwork gracing the walls, and the Versace trademark is emblazoned everywhere. A private marina, the Salus Per Aquum Spa ("Health Through Water") and three award-winning restaurants accompany the 205 rooms and 72 adjacent condominiums.

Round Hill Hotel & Villas
Montego Bay, Jamaica

Overlooking the Caribbean Sea, the Ralph Lauren-designed 18th-century great house is marketed as "a cashmere sweater, exquisite to experience but not the least bit showy." Pink replaces red in the all-American color scheme synonymous with his label. To complete the plantation-style, relaxed ambiance are white stone floors, four-poster mahogany-stained bamboo beds and furniture from the RL Home Collection. Situated amid plentiful gardens, 36 oceanfront rooms offer panoramic views and oversize bathrooms are finished with deep soaking tubs and separate rain showers.

Hotel Petit Moulin and Hotel Bellechasse
Paris, France

French designer Christian Lacroix's flamboyant style comes to life in his first Parisian property, the Hotel Petit Moulin. Housed in a former 17th-century bakery, each of the hotel's 17 rooms each offer a unique theme, with Scandinavian fabrics, polka-dot rugs and elaborate frescoes on the walls.
