According to new CBRE research, institutional investors are attracted to prime hotel assets in tier one markets across Asia Pacific, even though tourist arrivals in key destinations are only reaching 70-80% of pre-pandemic levels.
According to JLL's Hotel Operators' Sentiment Survey 2023, hotel occupancy levels in the Asia Pacific (APAC) continue to rise steadily following the reopening of all key markets, the ramping up of air capacity, and a strong pick up in conferences and events around the region.
Based on new data from JLL, Asia Pacific hotel investment volumes declined by 51% year-on-year in the first half of 2023 as macroeconomic challenges and the rising cost of debt influenced capital deployment.
According to CBRE's latest In and Out Report, offshore property investors have upped the ante in the Asia Pacific region, accounting for 41% of the $15.6 billion (USD) in office, retail, industrial and hotel property transactions finalised in H1 of 2021.
Asia Pacific hotel investment remained flat in the first half of 2021 with $3.7 billion in sales, a decline of 3.7% year-on-year. In total, 61 hotel investment deals were transacted in the first half of the year across nine countries and representing over 10,000 rooms.
