South Beach Regal: The Villa By Barton G.

by Andrea Selgas
InDecember 2009, Barton G. Weiss took over Casa Casuarina, formerly knownas the Versace Mansion, and imprinted his own personal style on thishistorical building. Located at the heart of South Beach, The Villa is an experience like none other with $5,000-a-night rooms, a spa and a romantic-styled restaurant.

When you first walk past the steel gates and into The Villayou find yourself in the courtyard with a streamed gold water fountainin front of you. To the left, a gold rimmed pool, where guests canenjoy their meals during the day. At night, the dining experience turnsfive-star, where jeweled glasses are at every table accompanied byVersace designed Rosenthal china. 

The bedrooms remain withthe same atmosphere as Versace left them, including the color schemesand fabrics. The main bedroom has a double king bed with Versace drapesand linens. The other rooms represent the fashion baron perfectly, butwith a Barton G. touch of blues, golds, reds and greens. Art datingback to the 1930s and the Versace era decorates The Villa.On the top floor, you will find lounge chairs, cabanas and sofas ofblues and corals that offer breathtaking views of South Beach.

Walking into the intimate dining room, seating 30 with its pebblemosaic walls, the first thing you notice is the mood the music will putyou in. There is opera and some light classical music to relax you foran enjoyable dinner. The chandeliered dining room with tables draped insilky royal blue cloth and matching chairs make this outdoor diningterrace, overlooking the dramatically lit pool, a romantic scene. Theirexquisite menu includes signature dishes such as “The Villa” Salad and“The Villa” Souffle, but also keeping it traditional with the AmericanWagyu Strip Steak and Lobster with Lobster Stuffed Tortellini and awine list of over 100 brands.

The Villaby Barton G. is a dining experience that will have you begging formore, if your wallet can handle it, that is. With its romantic themedrestaurant, beautiful outdoor scenery, gorgeous rooms, and relaxing spayou can’t go wrong by spending an evening at The Villa
