The ultra-luxury property now accepts cryptocurrency payments for stays, dining and spa experiences
Curator of magical moments, Palazzo Versace Dubai, is taking a unique step in the hospitality industry by allowing guests to pay for dining, stays and spa experiences in cryptocurrencies. The ultra-luxury property located in Jaddaf Waterfront has partnered with Binance, the world’s biggest cryptocurrency infrastructure provider, to offer the guests the possibility to settle payments in various cryptocurrencies such as BNB, Bitcoin, and Ethereum. These transactions will take place through Binance payment gateway.
Starting from 7th September, for room stays, restaurants, meetings, and events, all the guests will have the option to pay at the property using the Binance application. The next phase, online payment integration, will go live soon after. Palazzo Versace Dubai will also accept cryptocurrency payments on their eCommerce platforms, which include Gift Vouchers and Flower Shop.

Payments is just the beginning and we look forward to building on this partnership together.”
