Designer hotel collection, Ovolo Hotels, has revealed the first images of its latest project. Ovolo South Yarra sits next to the Toorak Road and Chapel Street intersection in Melbourne’s cultural hub of South Yarra.
The Ovolo Group, founded by entrepreneur Girish Jhunjhnuwala, first hit the real estate market in 2002. The company prides itself on being a collection of contemporary hotels that keep you connected to all the luxuries you love.
The new Ovolo South Yarra hotel stays true to this statement, blending past, present and progressive. A place where retro-chic and pop art collide.
A look inside Ovolo South Yarra
From micro-rooms to rock star suites, Ovolo South Yarra offers 123 rooms. Influenced by the days of disco, rock gods and retro glamour, the rooms are bold in design.
In collaboration with award-winning designers Luchetti Krelle, Ovolo South Yarra infuses retro-plush with accents of chrome and colour, creating a heady mix of modern and retro-futurism.
Other features of the hotel, such as the concrete reception desk and stunning central fireplace, highlight Ovolo’s commitment to flawless design.
Experience vegan delights at Lona Misa
The announcement of collaboration between renowned Melbourne chefs Shannon Martinez (Smith & Daughters, Smith & Daughters Deli) and Ian Curley (French Saloon, Kirk’s Wine Bar) has heightened the opening.
The two incredible chefs will be running Lona Misa together, the hotel’s innovative vegan bar and kitchen. A rebellious renaissance from root to stem, the restaurant has been sustainably crafted to be shareable, seasonal and flavourful.
“Shannon is a real pioneer for plant-based dining. For what she brings to the table… She has set a foundation for vegetarian and plant-based dining to be taken seriously,” Ian Curley said on working with Shannon.
Shannon returned the affections, stating “I’m excited about working with Curley.”
