Ovolo Hotels gets top recognition

SYDNEY, September 12, 2018

In front of a crowd of over 750 hoteliers and industry leaders, Ovolo Hotel’s founder and CEO was crowned Asia-Pacific Hotelier of the Year at the prestigious HM Awards on September 7.

Ovolo was nominated for an impressive 28 awards across both property and people categories, taking home two additional awards including 'Best Interior Design' for Ovolo Inchcolm Brisbane and 'HR Associate' whilst receiving 'Highly Commended' in three categories of 'Hotel Brand of the Year', 'Boutique Hotel' and 'Housekeeper'.

Ovolo Hotels is an independent hospitality company that owns and operates a collection of individually designed hotels. Founded in 2002, Ovolo is a family owned and privately-operated business. The company now runs four hotels in Hong Kong, and six hotels across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Canberra.
Ovolo Groups founder and CEO Girish Jhunjhnuwala said when Ovolo Hotels began its journey in 2010, he had a vision to create a unique brand that questioned (or challenged) the status quo in the hospitality industry.
“Little did I know that our mission to redefine what effortless living is all about in hotel accommodation would drive our innovative F&B offering, the guest experience, Freebies offering, or our in-house training and development programme aptly named Rock@Ovolo - we try to make a difference,” said Jhunjhnuwala.
"Having a vision is important, but even more important is to have people who believe in and execute your vision, and these results reflect this,” he said.
In its 16th year, the HM Awards for Hotel & Accommodation Excellence are the leading awards for the accommodation industry in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region, recognising exceptional achievement. The awards were held at Australia’s premier convention, exhibition and events precinct ICC Sydney and hosted by Australian TV personality Larry Emdur. - TradeArabia News Service
