Hong Kong hotel and serviced apartment brand the Ovolo Group has extended its reach into the Australian market with the opening of its first iconic hotel in Melbourne’s central business district (CBD).

Having rapidly grown into one of Hong Kong’s largest independent hotel and serviced apartment operators, the Ovolo Group’s first international property draws influences from the design-conscious living and high-tech touches that have become a hallmark of the brand.

Said founder and CEO of Ovolo Group Girish Jhunjhnuwala, “Our properties are all about bright rooms and bright ideas.”

The boutique hotel in Melbourne comprises 43 rooms ranging from well-designed studio apartments to the luxury penthouses complete with personal terraces, pinball machines and boxing bags.

Located on Little Bourke Street, the hotel is a stone’s throw from the “Paris end” of Collins Street, Melbourne, the theatre district and a host of trendy eateries and boutiques such as Long Grain and Gingerboy, with close proximity to Chinatown and just a 100-metre walk to Parliament House.

“Our aim is to provide truly effortless living and experience our unique personalised service with all the extras included,” said general manager of business development Gaurang Jhunjhnuwala.

Aiming to achieve uncluttered, light and effortless living in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD, each room offers an individual and distinct style.

Taking inspiration from the hidden secrets of Melbourne’s laneways, each room offers surprise quirks such as chalkboard walls, shaving mirrors in the showers and other thoughtful design solutions.

State of the art technology, personalised 24-hour reception service, free WIFI unlimited to device, complimentary daily mini-bar, unrestricted local calls and Grab’n’Go breakfast services are all part of the price.

“Rated one of the best cities in the world Melbourne was an obvious choice for expansion. We hope our guests enjoy their stay so much they never want to leave! But if they must, they’ll have access to Melbourne’s unique lifestyle right outside their door,” said Guarang Jhunjhnuwala.

The Ovolo Group plans to expand throughout key cities in Australia posing an inevitable check-in to the Australian market.

The ‘Ovolo’ opens early September – just in time for Melbourne’s action packed event season.
