Following a major transformation, Hong Kong’s Ovolo Central has joined Ovolo Woolloomooloo Sydney and Ovolo The Valley Brisbane in the Small Luxury Hotels (SLH) collection. SLH and Ovolo share many of the same philosophies, celebrating individuality and character and, above all, ensuring consistently high standards. The very first Ovolo, Ovolo Central originally opened in 2002 and has recently unveiled a new transformation including exterior facade, new social spaces and reception, rooms, Hong Kong’s first hotel vegetarian restaurant VEDA, and the state-of-the-art meeting room B.I.G.
The recent transformation was a collaboration by global architecture firms, MAKE, KplusK Associates, ALT254 and Monique McLintock Interiors, and brings a fresh hospitality concept to downtown Hong Kong. Ovolo Central excites guests with a stunning new look that is bursting with Ovolo personality. The boutique designer hotel features an array of unique and edgy design elements. It channels a modern, funky aesthetic replete with custom artworks, edgy fabrics and design accents riffing on the city’s east meets-west heritage.
Ovolo’s commitment to relaxation and style takes centre stage at Ovolo Central, with large, flat-screen televisions, Apple TV, and Amazon Alexa. In addition to the above are Ovolo Central’s signature, yet standard inclusions – breakfast, wi-fi, in-room mini bar, laundry and social hour drinks. All combine to make Ovolo Central the ultimate luxury design hotel.
This revamped boutique designer hotel also boasts an exceptional culinary scene. VEDA, Hong Kong’s first vegetarian hotel restaurant spearheaded by celebrated vegetarian chef Hetty McKinnon, brings an array of plant-based dishes that burst with flavours and recently won the 2019 Foodie Fork Editors Choice Award. Tim Alpe, Ovolo Group Hong Kong COO says: “Small Luxury Hotels seek out the little gems that offer genuine, one-of-a-kind experiences and Ovolo Central truly aligns due to its appeal to the free spirited traveller, edgy art, original design, great music and unique east meets-west charm. Being part of SLH’s specially curated selection of extraordinary hotels is a great achievement and signifies the quality of Ovolo Central’s design features, enviable location and personalised service.”
