About us

OUR STORY

ZEN is a cloud-based technology brand revolutionizing hospitality in Southeast Asia. With our exponential growth in the region over the past years, we aim to enable property owners to have a strong digital presence and get access to the latest technologies to run more optimally and prepare for the future of travel. We help hotels across Southeast Asia increase revenue, improve operations, reduce the cost base, improve guest satisfaction and in doing so increase the long-term value of their property.


The company was founded in 2015 by Kirren Tanna (founder of FoodPanda and UNA brands) and Nathan Boublil (Cambridge graduate, founder of SmartGov, Investor) in Indonesia, with Rocket Internet (behind multi-billion companies such as Lazada) among its early investors.


Today, ZEN is part of Yanolja Group, Korea's #1 travel-tech company (with Booking Holdings, SoftBank, and GIC among its shareholders).
