The wait is over for boutique-hotel lovers wondering what award-winning hotel group, Ovolo Hotels, has been keeping up its sleeve following last year’s acquisition of Brisbane’s New Inchcolm Hotel. The brand behind two of Australia’s top-rated hotels* raised the curtain on the reimagined Ovolo Inchcolm Brisbane on Wednesday 4 April.
With Ovolo’s commitment to effortless living and experience-based culture taking centre stage, the new-look Ovolo Inchcolm draws inspiration from its architectural heritage, dating back to the 1920s, embodied by a concept called ‘The Cabinet of Curiosity’, curated by stylist Anna Roberts. Here, guests will find an oddball mix of books, objects and artefacts paying homage to the building’s history, while themed interiors tell their own stories as guests make their way through the hotel.
CEO of the Ovolo Group, Girish Jhunjhnuwala, said: “After months of design curation, careful planning and preparation, we are excited to finally share Ovolo Inchcolm with Australian and international guests.
“As with all of our design-led hotels, we have gone above and beyond to ensure every last detail of Ovolo Inchcolm has the guests’ experience at its heart, and speaks to our commitment to effortless living – it’s brilliant to see how the concept has come to life.”
Beyond the interiors and unbeatable guest experiences, Ovolo Inchcolm is home to a restaurant and bar, Salon de Co, where visitors can indulge in dishes and beverages by chef Anthony Hales amid the charm of Georgian-meets-Art Deco decor.
The launch of Ovolo Inchcolm is another milestone for the boutique hotel group, which has seen a rapid expansion in Australia over the past 12 months, taking its local portfolio to six properties throughout Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Canberra.
