Hotel Planning and Development

Getting the planning and development right is fundamental for any hotel, tourism and leisure project. Our international team of experts will use their project experience, market research and analytical capabilities to help you navigate the entire process.

The key to any successful hotel development is thorough planning and preparation, only when every aspect and cost has been carefully considered, should the wheels be set in motion” Robert Hecker, Chairman Horwath HTL

We can spot development opportunities, recommending the concept and product that will realise its full potential.

By estimating project cash flows, we can test a project’s financial feasibility. We can also form a view of potential investment returns based on a detailed analysis of future market performance, the competitive attributes of the subject property and local operational and financial benchmarks from our database.

Developers, operators, lenders and investors rely on our reports for an impartial assessment of project viability while our market and product descriptions form the basis for architectural briefs, for shortlisting appropriate operators and for project branding.
