Hotel Group


ZokuFacilitating global living and working for the travelling professional, Zoku, which is Japanese for family, tribe, or clan, will disrupt and create a new category in the hotel industry - a home-office hybrid, also suitable for long stays, with the services of a hotel and the social buzz of a thriving neighbourhood. Zoku will be a relaxed place to live, work and socialise with like-minded people while getting wired into the city. The first Zoku will open in Amsterdam’s city centre in the fall of 2015, featuring 133 Zoku Lofts, and over 500 m2 of social space for its guests - other timezones will quickly follow.

The Zoku Concept

When we started working on Zoku a while back (around 5 years ago), we started out with 150 personal interviews with our target audience: the international mobile professionals whom we like to call 'global nomads'.
