Singapore hotel investment sales surged last year: Savills
Hotel investment sales in Singapore surged last year partly due to the sale of The Westin Singapore, said property consultancy Savills in a report on Monday.
Hotel investment volume last year was $2.45 billion - 4.15 times higher than in 2012.
Japan-based Daisho Group's $468 million purchase of The Westin Singapore from BlackRock in December was the biggest hotel deal last year.
It accounted for the bulk of the $606 million worth of investment transactions in October through December. There was only one other hotel sale that quarter.
