Recharge Your Batteries

OPINION - 01 January 2013

Urban resorts with gorgeous residential units, restaurants, retail and services, boutique cool resorts, design concepts that seem magical – do you miss the weekly splash? Do you want to recharge your batteries? I have the recipe.

Go to Asia – just about anywhere – but for the biggest recharge, go to Hong Kong, China, Singapore, just about anywhere! The buzz is amazing. With strong operating fundamentals and available and willing capital – particularly equity equity – the best in class of new hotel product is being conceived, designed, built and delivered in Asia today. Standards are being reset, the bar is being lifted.

What is really interesting is how far ahead Asia has moved, not just in the development game, but also on the sustainability front – Asia!? At the most recent Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific (HICAP), I was stunned at the level of commitment and creativity in developing and operating environmentally friendly properties and communities. 

Don't get left behind – go east – recharge your batteries.
