Australia: Ovolo Hotel Group has announced the November opening of Ovolo The Valley in Brisbane.

The project, designed by global architecture firm Woods Bagot, is a renovation of the former Emporium Hotel and is described as "a whimsical oasis of colour, art, and surprising hints of quirk, curated throughout its 103 rooms".

CEO and chairman of the Ovolo Group, Girish Jhunjhnuwala says Ovolo has invested around AUS$55 million in adding a boutique designer hotel to Brisbane's hospitality market.

"There are many new comers to the Brisbane hotel market, but Ovolo's biggest point of difference is our exceptional customer service and design. We strive to exceed expectations and our rankings and customer feedback says it all. We are confident Ovolo The Valley will be a market leader for Brisbane in the near future," he said.

"Our brief to Woods Bagot was that each of our hotels must have their own unique personality and style, inspired by local surrounds, culture, heritage and Ovolo's playful, forward-thinking spirit, and they've delivered exactly that with The Valley. There is an element of fantasy, escapism and play in The Valley. We're positioning it as the perfect contemporary oasis to escape our busy urban lives," added Jhunjhnuwala.

Woods Bagot's principal and hotel sector leader (Australia), Bronwyn McColl, said: "With an eccentric mix of art, fashion, style and a whole lot of fabulous, we've created a new personality in Brisbane's hotel market. We started by exploring the spaces behind The Valley's indiscernible facades and the spaces in-between and translated them into playful yet sophisticated experiences that take the Ovolo guest by surprise - including the most incredible rock star suites in honour of the late David Bowie with 1970s inspired velvet lounges and a gold bar for those who dare."
