NEW hotel operator and Southeast Asian hospitality brand Ormond Group will introduce two new hotel concepts to Melbourne in 2022.
The Ormond Melbourne and MoMo’s Melbourne on Flinders Lane will each have their own distinct tower in Melbourne’s CBD and will provide 537 guest rooms between the properties.
Ormond Melbourne promises to offer simplified luxury, “prioritising great service, high quality guest essentials, beautiful and thoughtful design and dynamic social programming,” the company said.
MoMo’s Melbourne will provide guests with minimalist hotel rooms alongside “playful spaces” at a value-for-money price point.
Together Ormond said the properties would provide a dual-brand experience in an upscale boutique hotel.
“Through our new brands, we hope to be able to elevate the hotel scene in Melbourne through our inclusive approach to programming and design,” said Ormond Group CEO Gareth Lim.
“Ormond and MoMo’s will offer culturally relevant experiences for guests and locals at great value for money price points in one central location,” he said.
The development will have a purpose-built pedestrian laneway, multi-use spaces, sky bar and restaurant and will rise from a 3.716m2 events and F&B podium.
This year, Ormond Group will open the first properties for its two new lifestyle hotel brands with the Q3 launches of The Chow Kit — an Ormond Hotel and MoMo’s in Kuala Lumpur and in 2021 it will open the flagship hotel under the Ormond Hotels brand in Dublin.
Ormond Group has three brands in its portfolio – Ormond, MoMo’s and Tune Hotels.
