Budget hotel booking site Zen Rooms announced that it has recently opened more than 400 new rooms with its recent partnership with boutique hotel operator Selah Hotels.
The company fully manages the newly opened Zen Rooms Selah Lofts in Harrison St. in Pasay City with 205 budget rooms.
Just above Zen Rooms Selah Lofts are the rooms of Zen Rooms Selah Pods for mid-range accommodation of 108 rooms with access to the rooftop infinity pool, bar, and restaurant with a 360-view of the city’s skyline.
For a more premium stay, Zen Rooms offers Zen Premium Selah Garden Pasay on Park Avenue. With close to 100 rooms, it can accommodate group bookings as it offers large rooms for 6, 8, and even 10 persons. It is also the only hotel across Metro Manila to offer high rope activities as well as a zip line and wall climbing.
After operating for the past four years, Zen Rooms said it now has over 4,500 rooms across the Philippines and 10,000 rooms across Southeast Asia on its platform.
With its constant expansion, the company said it is set to be in 70 cities by the end of 2019 adding La Union, Baler, Tagaytay, Baguio, and other top destinations in the country.
Zen Rooms said it has achieved more than what is expected from a hotel startup with humble beginnings. The company aims standardize the budget hotel industry in the Philippines.
“We are very excited to announce this partnership today. When Zen Rooms expanded here in 2015, our goal was just to fix the fragmented budget hotel industry. Now, four years later, being the largest hotel chain in the Philippines, our reach has lengthened and our purpose has deepened. We are here to build relationships with hotel owners and support local businesses,” said Michael Raquiza, country manager of Zen Rooms Philippines.
Jeff Thomas, managing director of Selah Hotels, added: “Zen Rooms has been very effective in terms of tapping the online market and selling our rooms to a wider audience online. I look forward to what more Zen Rooms can do to elevate our hotels further especially in the international market.”
