Our flagship brand, Ormond Hotels, is a collection of beautiful boutique properties for the contemporary traveller who appreciates modern, simplified luxury. Ormond Hotels takes its storied name and inspiration from one of the most renowned pieces of modernist literature: James Joyce’s Ulysses. The Ormond Hotel is a landmark and legend, so when the opportunity presented itself we knew we had to restore it to its former glory. And that’s just the first step; we’ll also be taking the Ormond story around the globe, establishing a new luxury hotel experience that befits its heritage. By taking the best of Ormond’s history and stature, and combining it with completely new ideas and experiences, we’ve created a boutique hotel brand that marries tradition with modernity, offering meaningful, authentic experiences in cities and vibrant cultural centres around the world. The first Ormond Hotel - The Chow Kit will open in Kuala Lumpur in September 2019.
