Built in 1930, Casa Casuarina, formerly known as the home of the legendary Italian fashion designer, Gianni Versace has now been converted into a luxury hotel. Guests can now stay in one of its 10 marvelous suites.

The famed Miami Beach Mansion which was home to the iconic fashion designer Gianni Versace may have gone down in history for all the wrong reasons, however, the astonishing and private villa Casa Casuarina has now been transformed into a new luxury hotel, where fans of the designers and tourists alike can book one of the 10 majestic and highly decorated suites.

Sadly, Versace was famously murdered on the steps of this sprawling mansion back in 1997, which weirdly enough has made this house into one of the biggest attractions in Miami. Versace purchased the house in 1992, and he went even further by purchasing the Revere Hotel next door which he later knocked down to accommodate a pool as well as a new south wing for his home.
