Set at the heart of the French West Indies, Saint-Barth is an idyllic holiday destination that offers a selection of unique luxury hotels. BARNES Saint-Barth connects hotel owners looking to dispose of their assets and investors looking for hotels with strong potential. BARNES Hotels Advisory specialises in luxury hotels, with 4 or 5 stars, helping their owners enhance their assets, complete the technical diagnostic file, and market the property.
An investment that provides long-term returns, the luxury hotel market has become a coveted asset sector in its own right over recent years, in the same way as retail stores and offices.
BARNES Hotels Advisory gives priority to strategic unitary investments, without excluding portfolio sales.
In this type of niche sector, discretion is a key factor for owners and investors looking to carry out transactions on a confidential basis, off market, without going through the usual marketing channels. In order to ensure this, BARNES Hotels Advisory has developed its own network over more than 20 years, based on pooling and cross-over between the different services the BARNES entities propose.
But sourcing is merely the first step in a sale or acquisition. Our expertise is also rooted in the organisation, securing, control and confidentiality of the processes. We deal in exclusive mandates in order to control communication surrounding and the confidentiality of the transaction.
Valuation is one of the most important stages in all property transactions, but even more so when it comes to the sale/acquisition of a hotel. We provide a valuation of the goodwill and a diagnosis of its commercial performance, as well as an estimate of the value of the actual hotel envelope (analysis taking into account of the history of the building, its architecture its size, extension opportunities, the current lease and its compliance with the regulations in force).
