Ovolo Central, Hong Kong Luxury Lifestyle Hotel ( 奧華酒店, 中環 )


hong kong luxury hotel ovolo central blogger review
Just footsteps away from the world renowned Lan Kwai Fong ( 蘭桂坊 ), Hong Kong’s premiere dining and entertainment destination, an award-winning luxury lifestyle hotel stands tall. Ovolo Central on 2 Arbuthnot Road ( 奧華酒店, 香港中環, 亞畢諾道2號 ), way surpassed our expectation with their marvellous service staff, luxurious bedroom furnishings, and of course their host of freebies that came with it during our recent 1-week stay in Hong Kong.

Strategically located right in the heart of the Central district ( 中環 ), Ovolo Central features 42 spacious guest rooms designed by award-winning Hong Kong firm KplusK Associates. Last Christmas vacation in Hong Kong, #OvoloCentral hosted my family in their " Super Shiny " rooms, right on the top floor of 27th! Let's take a peek into the flagship Ovolo Hotel, which has recently won the HA+D Award for Design Excellence in the Best Hotel Interiors category..........

Ovolo Central boasts one of Hong Kong’s most spacious centrally-located hotel rooms. Each studio suite comes with a bedroom cum office featuring a walnut desk and designer ergonomic chair, and fully equipped with new Apple TVs, free high-speed Wi-Fi and Bluetooth so that TV screens can be used to showcase business presentations. You can even request for their free use of iPad, X-Box and Wii gaming systems! Occupying the top 7 floors, the Super Shiny Rooms ( 350sq ft / 33 sqm ) come with additional features such as the free-to-use in-room e-printers.

Spotted in the plush bedrooms is a pair of eye-catching funky metallic cushion and bolster which stood out in contrast to the white pristine linen, and a lavish patchwork cowhide rug offering a myriad of tones that pulled the room together.

Well, my son was seen happily engrossed in his own cyber world, obviously in high spirits having a room of his own.

Couple of thoughtful features, other than the iron and ironing board, is an umbrella, a complimentary shopping bag and comfy bedroom slippers. This is just the beginning of an appealing parade of freebies coming up….............

Roomy bathroom donned in onyx and marble with walk-in rain shower, offering premium amenities such as the Salon-grade hairdryer and Malin+Goetz bathroom amenities that are exclusive to Ovolo in Hong Kong.

Mind you, these products are not your usual sample-size, but in 70 ml tubes! Love this intensive Malin+Goetz Vitamin B5 Body Moisturizer with bergamot extract!

Since it was winter in Hong Kong, this additional heater in the bathroom is definitely a bonus!

Besides the usual coffee / tea making facilities found in most hotels, Ovolo Central features an in-room Nespresso machine and a loot bag with munchies. Ovolo luxuries in their Super Shiny rooms also include complimentary miniature liquors like Johnny Walker Black Label Whisky, Svedka Vodka, Baileys Irish Cream and Gordon's Gin!

A well-stocked mini-bar offering guests an impressive array of drinks. When I said well-stocked, I really mean it! Ovolo Central pampers guests with these drinks in the chiller:
  • Jax Coco, a 100% natural coconut water extracted from premium young coconuts at their optimal stage of growth.
  • Superberries Healthy Juices, made from all natural berries by The Berry Company in the UK.
  • VITA Lemon Tea, a red tea with a subtle lemon flavour and it is extremely popular in Hong Kong.
  • Schweppes +C, provides your daily Vitamin C needs.
  • Schweppes Tonic, a classic mixer.
  • Bonaqua Mineral Water, containing balanced quality minerals to give a distinguished and refreshing crisp taste ideal for active people.
  • Tropicana Orange Juice, 100% orange juice from Florida.
  • Coke, an all-time favourite.
  • Hildon Natural Mineral Water, from deep beneath the chalk hills of the beautiful Hampshire countryside.
  • Tsingtao Lager, 4.8% alcohol by volume.

Be greeted by the beckoning Lo Lounge where the friendly team of staff is on 24 hours stand-by to serve you. A signature at all Ovolo Hotels, the Lo Lounge is a sleek multi-purpose social area with free Wi-Fi designed for hotel guests to work, network or simply kick back and relax. Nestled just behind the cheery orange leather sofa is a 24-hour gym for complimentary usage. The lifestyle hotel even has a free self-laundry service for your dirty clothes!

Lo Lounge is a place where guests can grab their coffee in the morning, take in all-day nibbles and sodas, and come back from 6-8pm for Free Happy Hour when it opens up the free-flow wine, beers, spirits and canapés!

The bright and modish glass house also features a daily salad bar for health-conscious visitors, and all hotel guests receive free breakfast plus 10% off for all items.

No 5-star hotel breakfast, but Ovolo Central offers a wholesome menu, with interesting items like the Lemon Ginger Shots for your daily vitamin needs, and cereals that come in air-tight glass jars for you to keep!

As you step out of Cafe O, which is next to the hotel, you'll find a serene walkway leading to the Central MTR Station just 5 - 10 mins away. Check out the perky surroundings as you take a stroll. The weather was great at just about 16°C, so my family really enjoyed our walk each morning and night.
hong kong luxury ovolo hotel arbuthnot review
Ovolo Central was officially launched in 2012. Designed by award-winning Hong Kong architectural firm K+K Associates, Ovolo 2 Arbuthnot Road takes the brand’s hallmark hi-tech interiors and all-inclusive services to new levels, offering the discerning business travellers and holiday makers an idyllic choice in a lush setting.

Did I tell you that Ovolo Hotels was named Best Luxury Hotel Brand in Hong Kong at the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2013? Well, I'm not surprised at all especially after my wonderful experience with them.

hong kong luxury ovolo hotel super shiny rooms
For travellers who desires the modest upgrade, the spacious Super Shiny Studio is a perfect retreat with their room tariffs starting from HK2,000+/night. Taking the top seven floors of the hotel, it's seamless living with a view!

What We Love
The Ambience:
luxury haven reviews ovolo central hotel hong-kong
With only two rooms on each floor, Ovolo guests get the most privacy and comfort during their stay. The rooms are spacious, clean and inviting. Love the posh furnishings!

The Location:
Ovolo Central is situated right in the prestigious address of Hong Kong’s business and entertainment district, minutes away from The Landmark, Exchange Square, International Finance Centre (IFC), and a stone's throw away from the city’s most sought-after restaurants, bars, clubs and shops in the famous party street, Lan Kwai Fong.

If you're coming to Ovolo Central from the airport, travel via the Airport Express to Hong Kong Station, and it's just 5-min taxi ride from there.

The Perks:
ovolo central super shiny room free miniature liquors
The awesome complimentary in-room mini bar featuring a premium selection of miniature liquors and healthy juices that is replenished daily. Plus, all-day gourmet coffee and snacks at their Lo Lounge, ensuring guests never go hungry!

hong kong ovolo hotel central arbuthnot loot bag
Isn't it great when there's a goodie bag full of treats waiting for you the moment you check into your room? The Loot Bag contains snacks like nuts, chocolates, biscuits and chips. I love the idea of having a box of mint thrown in too! Although it's said to be replenished daily, we only got our Loot Bag on our first day :<

luxury hotel ovolo central late nite loot bag
The Late Nite Loot came to us as a surprise when we spotted it at the lobby. We were really curious and requested for one at the reception.  Look what we've got - Shin Cup Noodle Soup by Nongshim, Glaceau Vitamin Water, Loacker CremKakao Wafers, Crackers. It's really thoughtful of Ovolo to put in a sachet of Alka-Seltzer tablets too, a fast relief for headaches. With the popular Lan Kwai Fong just minutes away, I wouldn't be surprised if any guests need these aspirins from their late night hang-outs.

ovolo hotel hong kong high speed wi fi
Free high speed Wi-Fi. We were also given password access to Wi-Fi hotspots in Hong Kong. This is definitely bonus since most of us are holding on to a smartphone; can't deny the fact that we need to get into our What's App or Facebook to reach out to our friends and family members. Lol! It helps that I get to check my emails every now and then while on the go. Whatever it is, just Do No Evil!

  13. What a way to start the new year Shirley!!! The presentation of your stay at this sumptuous hotel is picture perfect. (I love the way you arranged the photos)

    It sure looks like a wonderful place to experience the amenities of not only the hotel but of Hong Kong also. I wouldn't even know where to begin with the freebies. You don't see so many of them anymore.

    I especially like the way the hotel breakfast arrangements are made and those lemon ginger shots are the pièce de résistance in my book. (it's the little things:)

    Thank you so much for sharing your stay with us Shirley. It was a virtual mini vacation in itself, lol...

    P.S. That is one handsome boy you have there:)
