Ovolo to Open in Melbourne
The Ovolo Group
The Ovolo Group will open its first overseas property in Melbourne, Australia
in mid 2012. The Ovolo Group is a Hongkong-based hotel and serviced apartment
owner and operator.
It has bought the Somerset Gordon Heights Melbourne from
Ascott for A$11.7 million (US$12.6 million).
The property will feature a mix of studio, one- and
two-bedroom units, as well as penthouses with balconies, after its
refurbishment. There will be 43 units in total.
Somerset Gordon Heights Melbourne
was identified as the site for our first overseas property due to the trendy
nature of the city, which fits in well with Ovolo's branding,” said Ovolo Gorup
general manager of business development & marketing, Gaurang Jhunjhnuwala.
“We are looking to grow into other main cities in Australia in coming years.”
The Ovolo Group has a portfolio of six hotels and serviced
residences on Hong Kong Island and West Kowloon.
In Spring 2011, Ovolo launched Hong Kong's first all-suite hotel in West Kowloon featuring two and three bedroom suites.
The Ovolo Group was established in 2002, and provides care
and understanding through the high levels of service and guest satisfaction.
Izi Servized Offices
With this in mind, owner-operator Mr. Girish Jhunjhnuwala
continues to bring ground-breaking concepts in urban living, transforming each
residence with intelligent design. Walking into each apartment, guests
immediately feel at home. Throughout the past decade, Ovolo group has been
consistently popular among both short and long-term guests.
Ovolo group also operates izi, a unique and bold on
