Ovolo to open second hotel in Melbourne

02 Oct 2020

The spirit of the Seventies will rock Melbourne in 2021, when Hong Kong’s Ovolo Group opens its second property in the city.

The Ovolo South Yarra will be located on the corner of Toorak Road and Chapel Street in South Yarra, about 15 minutes from Melbourne’s central business district. South Yarra is home to upmarket retail outlets, restaurants, cafes and nightlife.

The property will feature 123 rooms and suites decorated in the style of 1970’s rock music and pop culture. Each room will be decked out in chrome, colour and retro plush. Four of its upper-tier suites will be named after the era’s most famous rock legends.

Ovolo Group Founder and CEO, Girish Jhunjhnuwala, says Ovolo South Yarra will offer guests a unique experience.

‘Ovolo South Yarra will set the scene for an extraordinary hotel experience embodying Ovolo’s philosophy of connecting with its customers emotionally and will complement the local cultural scene through its art, design and unique restaurant concept,’ he says.

Ovolo’s other property in Melbourne is Ovolo Laneways, located on Little Bourke Street in the heart of the CBD.

Headquartered in Hong Kong, Ovolo Group is a family business that owns and operates a collection of individually designed lifestyle hotels and serviced apartments. The Group has six properties in Australia (two in Sydney, two in Brisbane, one in Canberra and one in Melbourne).
