Live Like A Local With Roomorama

Roomorama Site

September 2011, Singapore – Savvy travellers these days are looking for short-term home rentals.  Popular in the US and Europe, Roomorama who started out in New York City is now emerging in Asia recently providing guests a home away from home at affordable prices without having to sacrifice the style, luxury and convenience of staying in a hotel.

Roomorama has more than 16,000 properties in over 300 destinations.  With a host and guest relationship, this website provides a standardized payment system all parties.   The website also provides build-in reviews and 24 hours customer service to make renting a place from a stranger as simple and secure as booking a hotel room.


Roomarooma was founded by young working New York executives Jia En Teo and Federico Folcia.    They believed that this model could subsidize their travels and in the process, found like-minded friendly people with the same desire to experience destination living locally.  They also addressed the gap in the market with a one-stop service platform that could handle short-term rental transactions in a simple and secure manner.

Singapore born Jia En Teo, the founder and COO of Roomorama, saw the huge potential of expanding into Asia and opened the Asian headquarters in Singapore hoping to become the leader in this relatively un-tapped market.
