Hong Kong hotel chain expands to Australia


HONG KONG – The independent lifestyle hotel brand from Hong Kong, Ovolo Hotels, has landed in Sydney with a unique transformation of two signature properties at Darling Harbour and Woolloomooloo.

Founded by Girish Jhunjhnuwala in 2002, the Ovolo Group has become one of Hong Kong’s largest independent owner & operator hospitality firms in little over a decade, by providing business and leisure guests with the best in effortless living. The convention-challenging founder and visionary behind Ovolo, Girish Jhunjhnuwala, has driven this philosophy.

“Since 2002, we’ve been on a mission to redefine modern hospitality by creating new and intuitive concepts that deliver from the customers’ point of view,” says Jhunjhnuwala. “It’s an honor to now own and operate two of the most iconic landmarks in the great city of Sydney. What we hope for, is that world travelers and Australians alike will take the chance to experience what defines the Ovolo touch,” he adds.

As the epitome of where Sydney has come from, Ovolo’s acclaimed, heritage-listed spaces in Woolloomooloo and Darling Harbour now represent everything the future of hospitality holds for millennial travelers, on the lookout for a travel experience that moves away from the formula approach. Ovolo Hotels provides business and leisure travelers with all the comforts of intelligent, technology-driven living and yet each hotel resonates the local culture and history of its address.
