Outrigger Sells Six Resorts to Thailand’s Singha Estate

Singha Estate, one of Thailand’s premier property development and investment holding companies, has acquired six properties from the Honolulu-based hotel chain and management company, Outrigger.

 The US$ 310 million acquisition is part of Singha Estate’s strategic investment approach focused on the expansion and entry in high-yield tourist destinations around the globe.

“Singha Estate’s vision aims to drive the business to become a ‘premier property development and investment holding company’ generating revenue of THB 20 billion by 2020. We believe that this strategic investment and acquisition of Outrigger resorts in four countries will generate recurring income and further diversify the company’s profile and geographical risk,” said Naris Cheyklin, Chief Executive Officer, Singha Estate.

“With Singha Estate’s esteemed reputation as outstanding stewards of the properties and places in which it invests, Outrigger has full confidence that its premier resorts will continue in exceptional care. This asset sale and strategic partnership now provide new capital for further expansion while retaining Outrigger’s brand presence and management of world-class properties,” said Jeff Wagoner, President and CEO, Outrigger Hotels and Resorts.

The completion of the acquisition will raise Singha Estate’s hospitality business portfolio to a total of 4,644 room keys by the end of 2018, with 10 distinctive properties catered to visitors in global tourist destinations and a collection of 29 properties in some of the finest locations across the United Kingdom.
