Opportunities in the Portuguese hotel industry – 2021

Register now

In 2020, overnight stays in Portugal fell by more than 63%. The lowest levels in almost 40 years due to the current healthcare crisis. Despite this, 42 new hotels (7,079 rooms) are currently under construction in the country.

We are already 4 months into 2021 and the tourism industry in Portugal has not been able to operate given government restrictions. Thus, after more than 1 year without full capacity and increasing debt levels; the hotel industry is on the light spot for debt and equity investors.

Numerous Spanish players including Azora, Portobello and Navis have pledged more than € 1 Bn to invest in the Iberian hotel industry. But there is also interest from large multi-strategy players such as Bain, Blackstone, and Apollo. According to the media, these funds are competing to acquire a PE owned portfolio of 20 hotels and development land in Portugal for a total of €1.4 Bn.

Please join us for our next webinar on April 29th at 16:00 PT time to dive deeper into the subject with a panel of seasoned professionals.
