ZJZ Hospitality Inc. is the brainchild of Deven Bhakta. In 1996, the visionary made his first foray into hotel development in Port Aransas, Texas. That initial effort propagated multiple projects yielding more than 10 developed hotels in a 13-year period. ZJZ Hospitality's current portfolio includes seven owned/managed properties and one managed hotel in South Texas. On the development side, the company has expanded its wingspan and is assessing hotel and resort projects in and out of Texas for potential involvement.
