Thailand’s Minor Hotel Group Acquires Hotel Tivoli Oriente in Lisbon, Portugal

Thailand’s Minor Hotel Group has acquired the Hotel Tivoli Oriente in Lisbon, Portugal.

 The EUR 38.5 million acquisition includes freehold land and hotel assets, which are long term leased to a third party lessee.

During the current lease term, the hotel will continue to operate as Tivoli Oriente, operated by Tivoli Hotels & Resorts. Upon the expiry of the current lease term in mid 2016, MHG has said it will decide whether to continue leasing the property to a third party lessee, or to operate the property itself.

Located in Parque das Nações, overlooking the River Tagus in the Portuguese capital, Tivoli Oriente has 279 guest rooms, a restaurant and bar, outdoor swimming pool, 799-sqm meeting room and parking for 90 cars.

Tivoli Oriente can be easily reached from any part of the city or further away by using the nearby Gare do Oriente train station, and is just five minutes from Lisbon Portela Airport.

This strategic asset investment follows MHG’s milestone EUR 168 million acquisition earlier this year of four Tivoli hotels in Portugal and two Tivoli hotels, along with the Tivoli Hotels & Resorts brand, in Brazil, which represented the group’s entry into the hospitality sector in those two continents and established Portugal and Brazil as MHG’s two strategically-chosen countries for future expansion into Europe and South America.

 The addition of Tivoli Oriente takes MHG’s portfolio to 135 properties.

Dillip Rajakarier, Group COO of Minor International and CEO of Minor Hotel Group, said, “Following MHG’s acquisition of six Tivoli hotels earlier this year, including four assets in Portugal, this latest investment to acquire Tivoli Oriente in Lisbon continues the group’s strategic plans to build a strong business in Europe, with Portugal the continued country of focus. The seven properties that the group now owns represent the majority of value of the total 14 properties in the Tivoli-branded portfolio. MHG believes that the potential expansion of the brand in Portugal in the future could pave the way to create an even stronger platform and a more valuable intellectual property asset for the group.”
