Depa Limited, one of leading interior contracting services, announced yesterday that it has won a Dh129m ($32.7m) contract for the fit-out works of hotel rooms and furnished apartments in the Palazzo Versace Hotel in Dubai. The project is due for completion on 30 April 2010.

The $395 million Palazzo Versace Resort, designed by one of the world's leading international design fashion houses, will be located in Culture Village, a Dh50bn leisure and tourist project being developed by Dubai Properties on the edge of the Dubai Creek. The hotel will span 37,224 sqm and will feature the world's first refrigerated beach so that guests can walk comfortably across the sand on hot days, said the developer.

Depa's scope of work includes the complete fit-out works for 197 out of 213 hotel guest rooms and all of the 169 luxurious furnished apartments.

Depa was appointed by the Emirates Sunland Group (ESG), which is a Dubai-based joint venture between Enshaa, a regional real estate developer, and the Australian-based developer, the Sunland Group.

The Palazzo Versace Hotel in Dubai is the second of its kind in the world, the first one being Palazzo Versace Australia, which opened in the year 2000 in Queensland.
