Ovolo Group will continue its expansion with Ovolo South Yarra, set to open in the first quarter of 2021.
Located near Melbourne’s famed intersection of Toorak Road and Chapel Street, Ovolo South Yarra will take esign cues from the days of disco, rock gods and 70s glamour.
The hotel will feature 123 rooms and suites, each infused with retro-plush finishes, accents of chrome and colour.
The property will offer four Rockstar suites all named after the era’s most-loved music icons.
Rachel Luchetti , director and designer of Luchetti Krelle, said Ovolo South Yarra is a mix of ‘mod’ and ‘retrofuturism’.
“Retrofuturism explores the themes of tension between past and future and the nostalgia of those eras is appropriated with integrated modern art installations and collaborations with local and international artists,” she said.
Guests will enjoy an Ovolo kitchen and bar concept, which will be inspired by fresh and locally sourced produce, ethical eating and conscious cuisine.
Commenting on the new hotel development, founder and CEO of Ovolo Group Girish Jhunjhnuwala said it will be anything but under-the-radar.
“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 said.
“We are excited to see this hotel come to life alongside our other development in Bali, Mamaka By Ovolo.”
