New to Zoku?


You could call Zoku a re-invented apartment hotel – in fact – Zoku creates a new category in the hotel industry: a home-office hybrid, which is a relaxed place to live, work and socialize with like-minded people while getting wired into the city.

Unlike standard hotel rooms where the bed takes up most of the room, our innovative Lofts function like a real apartment. They have a raised (and super comfy) bed so you can spend time in your room, have enough space to move around, and actually feel comfortable having a dinner party – just like you would at home!

Each Loft is private, sleeps two, and contains a full living room, kitchen, bathroom and a big kitchen table. You can even personalize your space by choosing your favorite artwork to hang on the walls and inspire you during your stay.

New to The Core?

Core[noun]: /kɔː/ The part of something that is central to it’s existence or character. The heart, nucleus, quintessence, crux, body, basis

The Core Women Care was founded by dr. Louise Lagendijk- medical doctor with a deep passion for what makes women healthy- body, mind and soul. She created The Core to bring women together, share with them ‘what women must know to live their best lives’ and reconnect them back to their inner wisdom. Connecting the dots where Soul and Science meet.

The Core aims to educate women on how their bodies and minds work, while inspiring them to take tremendous care of themselves. They focus on the health and wellbeing of women to live a life that is balanced, joyful and in touch with who they truly are. This is because they believe we can be the working woman, caring mother, health freak, loving friend and the social enthusiast – all at the same time. We just need some support, and that’s where we come in.
