The Zenders story began when three sisters wanted to honour their Dutch heritage and celebrate their parents' journey to New Zealand. They aimed to create a space where people could gather, connect and nourish, to celebrate any occasion.

​ Located 6km from central Hamilton and 15km from Hamilton Airport, Zenders offer an authentic Euro-style facility for every occasion.

In the Netherlands, we value ‘gezelligheid’ – a warm, heartfelt welcome. It is our pleasure to host you.
