Who we are

We wouldn’t be where we are today without our determination, strong work ethic and family values.

At JMK Group, we pride ourselves on being a strong privately-owned company that puts people at the heart of everything we do. We’ve experienced rapid business growth since our establishment in 2009 and now have an extensive hotel portfolio which is constantly evolving, thanks to our people, innovative thinking and future orientated approach.

Our Beginning

A family run business with strong foundations.

Our story began when one ambitious entrepreneur, John Kajani made a bold decision to move from textiles to the property industry. With a strong work ethic and an eagerness to succeed, he opened a small boutique hotel in Kensington in 2009, unaware it was the start of something huge.

What started as a single 21-bedroom hotel has since grown into an extensive portfolio of hotels, properties and coffee houses known as the ‘JMK Group’. Despite such an exponential growth, we’ve remained a powerful ‘family-run’ business with strong core values, confident in our ability to deliver excellence and long-term success.
