We are pleased to share with you the Hotel Capital Markets Investment Review, which provides a comprehensive look at transaction activity, industry trends and key buyer groups that were active in 2023.

  • The Australian hotel and tourism sector has seen a remarkable comeback after the pandemic, yet 2023 brought new challenges for hotel investors.
  • Australian hotel investment volumes held up well with full year volumes reaching $2.4 billion, representing a decrease of just 7 per cent on 2022’s dollar volume with an availability of stock post a development phase and boosted by ten premium asset sales.
  • Pent-up demand for travel remains elevated and the growth profile projects a strong and progressive recovery to pre-pandemic norms.
  • A new narrative will determine investor behaviour in 2024 with interest rates at or near the high. Diversification and active risk management will be critical components of portfolio construction.
  • Transactional activity is likely to improve with growing optimism that available capital will match up with the opportunities that market conditions are creating.
