Founded by a team of experienced hospitality and industry professionals with rich backgrounds in India and the APAC, Bonjour is the antidote to run-down, soulless budget lodgings and expensive, stuffy legacy hotels.
The world of business and travel has changed considerably, yet the hotel experience is no different than it’s ever been. We’re changing all that, not only transforming hotels but how people use them. We’ve listened to thousands of travelers who think, just like us, that great hotels do not have to be expensive. We saw the need for a different kind of hotels, and we knew it would take a different kind of company to build it. That’s why we founded Bonjour.
