Ovolo Hotels has forged a strategic partnership with Small Luxury Hotels of the World that will see the hotelier expand its presence on a global scale through SLH’s global sales, distribution, and marketing platforms.
The collaboration signals the beginning of a new era for Ovolo Hotels as it joins the SLH portfolio – offering access to a wider audience of lovers of bespoke luxury travel.
“We are thrilled to partner with Small Luxury Hotels of the World, a brand synonymous with independently spirited hotels and excellence,” said Dave Baswal, CEO of Ovolo Hotels.
“This strategic alliance not only strengthens our presence across key global markets but also allows us to showcase the distinct character and innovation that defines Ovolo, whilst remaining independently owned and operated.”
”We look forward to truly connecting with more travellers in our region and beyond.”
The collaboration seamlessly integrates five Ovolo Hotels properties into SLH’s curated collection – Ovolo Woolloomooloo in Sydney; Ovolo South Yara in Melbourne; Ovolo The Valley in Brisbane, Ovolo Nishi in Canberra and Ovolo Central in Hong Kong.
The By Ovolo Collective collection is also expected to join SLH in Q1 2024. That stable includes both Laneways by Ovolo in Melbourne and Mamaka by Ovolo in Bali.
Mark Wong, SVP Asia Pacific, Small Luxury Hotels of the World said The global alliance with Ovolo Hotels brings “exciting prospects and elevates SLH’s presence in Australia.”
“The unique character of each Ovolo property, along with its high standards of excellence they carry, will fit perfectly with our existing independently-minded SLH member hotels.”
