As per Danial Arun, the senior marketing executive for investments sales for OrangeTee Advisory, the new owner is able to choose to keep the current hotel operator or be able to take over the property with empty possession and then rebrand it. “The possibility of expanding the hotel’s size to 31 rooms would appeal to buyers who are looking for an expansive boutique hotel that has an investment amount that is comparatively (palatable),” he states.
