Happy Tenth Birthday Girish Jhunjhnuwala’s Ovolo Baby!

October 29, 2020 Headline News 1 Comment

In this very tough and competitive world of hospitality, it is really great to see that Ovolo Hotels, founded ten years ago and therefore celebrating a milestone birthday this year, has not only survived, but thrived and blossomed, without any question through the vision of founder and CEO Girish Jhunjhnuwala, with Ovolo clearly his “baby”

Having grown very successfully into a collection of contemporary hotels, Ovolo says it keeps guests connected to the little luxuries guests love, all effortlessly included, priding themselves on being in touch with the modern traveller through award-winning interior designs, detail-driven comforts, complimentary value-added services like the mini bar, breakfast, Wi-Fi, and more, and cutting-edge technology – all done in signature Ovolo style.

Girish Jhunjhnuwala’s “first born” hotel “baby, was in Hong Kong’s West Kowloon, but he now has 11 hotels and 8 restaurants across Hong Kong and Australia and there appears to be no stopping this man growing his family of stunning hotels as he has 2 new hotels under construction, with Melbourne welcoming its second property, Ovolo South Yarra and its first hotel in Indonesia, Mamaka By Ovolo on Bali’s Kuta Beach.

With Girish Jhunjhnuwala as founder and CEO and many would say “father”, it was inevitable that Ovolo would succeed with his entrepreneurial, adventurous, confident, disruptive, creative and fast-paced attitude to business and life approach and the embodiment in each hotel of Ovolo’s vision, with Girish Jhunjhnuwala the driving force behind its success both from aggressive expansion and through connecting with its guests in a meaningful and emotional way.

Girish Jhunjhnuwala said, “I started my career in my family’s watch-making business and after the tough decision to close it due to the changing times I pursued my passion and dream to own a hotel.”  “My vision has always been to do it differently, providing an experience which connect with our guest emotionally through design, art and music and exceptional yet personal service”

It is clear that through his vision, Ovolo has always done things “the Ovolo way”, not accepting the status quo, demonstrating through his effortless living philosophy from being dog friendly to  innovative restaurant concepts, and most recently being the world’s first hotel company to go completely vegetarian across all its hotels and restaurants.

The mantra which Ovolo embodies has seen it win the hearts of its guests and numerous accolades over the years, most recently “Brand of the Year” at the 2019 HM Awards and being the most recognised hotel brand in Australia the 2020 TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Awards.
