Bio

Girish Jhunjhnuwala is the Founder and CEO of Ovolo Hotels in Hong Kong, Australia, and soon, Bali. Ovolo Hotels first began its journey in 2010 with its first hotel opening in Hong Kong, and has continued to expand and challenge industry conventions, bringing on a new approach aimed at the modern traveler.

From there onwards, Ovolo Hotels has grown into a diversified international group with a collection of eleven designer properties under multiple brands, with more in the pipeline. The Ovolo Hotels experience is driven by his desire for all-inclusivity, which is the basis behind the signature Ovolo “Perks”. This concept is a promise to guests that once checked-in, all key touch points of the hotel are truly free. This is joined by another one of Ovolo’s signature characteristics, in which no two Ovolo hotels are truly the same. Challenging the “cookie cutter” approach seen in traditional hotels, the story, design, and touch of each Ovolo property is influenced by the neighborhood and its people.

It’s all these little personalized touches that Girish has wished for during a lifetime of travel, that make the Ovolo brand standout amongst a legion of hospitality brands. Recognized for his achievements, Girish has gone on to win multiple awards, including HM Awards’ Hotelier of the Year, and EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year.
