Ovolo Hotels has unveiled its latest hotel to join its ranks, Brisbane’s Ovolo Inchcolm on Wednesday 4 April in Spring Hill. Once a private residence and medical practice, the building was first constructed in the 1930s. Today the newly revamped property combines Ovolo’s signature take on design and hospitality with the building’s rich heritage and storied past to deliver a unique, curiosity-piquing experience. With Ovolo’s commitment to effortless living, the new Ovolo Inchcolm embodies the concept it calls “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 uniquely themed interiors tell their own stories as guests make their way through the hotel.
CEO of the Ovolo Group Girish Jhunjhnuwala said the hotel took months of design curation, careful planning and preparation. “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,” he said.
Beyond breathtaking interiors and unbeatable guest experiences, the hotel is home to Art Deco bar and restaurant Salon de Co, headed up by Executive Chef Anthony Hales. Anthony brings together a fun and modern offering with a homely twist, creating dishes designed to share, using fresh and seasonal produce, working directly with local farmers, artisans and producers. “It is important we create a place where revolutionary concepts are complemented by creative flair across both the space and the menu,” said Anthony. “I hope that through my hands-on and cultural culinary experience, we can bring a global edge to Salon de Co for both travellers and Brisbanites alike.”
The launch of Ovolo Inchcolm is another milestone for the 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. Ovolo Woolloomooloo and Ovolo 1888 Darling Harbour are currently ranked number one and two in Sydney.
Inchcolm Brisbane is located at 73 Wickham Terrace, Spring Hill.
