Adding to its growing Australian portfolio, Ovolo hotel group opened its latest Melbourne location in 2021. This stunning Melbourne hotel is located near the corner of Toorak Road and Chapel Street, the Ovolo South Yarra brings plenty of 70s glam to the area with a retro design by Luchetti Krelle and bold furnishings. Expect graphic wallpapers, patterned couches and lots of chrome accents, plus four 'Rockstar' suites named after iconic musicians.
At Ovolo, you can expect the hotel chain's usual flourishes. That includes being dog friendly — so, yes, your four-legged bestie can join you on your next getaway.
At its other Aussie hotels — such as Ovolo Laneways on Little Bourke Street in the CBD — the company offers a heap of great complimentary perks, such as a free mini bar (including a free loot bag), free breakfast with every stay, free wi-fi, free self-service laundry and a free happy hour drink each day, which are all available at South Yarra, too.
Also on the menu for Ovolo South Yarra: a fresh restaurant and bar. If you've visited the chain's other on-site hospitality venues — Mister Percy in Sydney's Pyrmont-based hotel, Za Za Ta in Brisbane and Monster at the Ovolo Nishi in Canberra — you'll know this location's offerings won't disappoint.
Lona Misa, Ovolo's Latin-inspired restaurant is a huge win, adding to Melbourne's eclectic food scene. It's also fully plant based, so expect great food that's super sustainable.
And the Backroom is their hidden bar, tucked away on the famed Toorak Road in South Yarra (discoverable only by a singular, signature, neon martini glass sign). Blending rock soul with contemporary art deco design, it's a great place for a post dinner tipple and a late-night snack.
