The US$310 million (B4.177 billion) acquisition is part of Singha Estate’s strategic investment approach focused on the expansion and entry in high-yield tourist destinations around the globe.

With 70 years of hospitality development and management experience, Outrigger’s resort properties are dotted throughout Hawaii and the Asia-Pacific region. With over 4,700 employees worldwide, Outrigger has been ranked 15th among the top 100 management companies in the US by Hotel Business Magazine.

“Singha Estate’s vision aims to drive the business to become a ‘premier property development and investment holding company’ generating revenue of B20bn 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 Public Company Limited.

Outrigger will continue to manage the six properties: Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort and Outrigger Koh Samui Beach Resort in Thailand, Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort and Castaway Island in Fiji, Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort in Mauritius, and Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort in the Republic of Maldives; with a total of 859 room keys.

These premier beachfront resorts represent up-and-coming tourist destinations globally in the Asia-Pacific, Oceania and Indian Ocean regions with high growth potential.

“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.

Dirk De Cuyper, Chief Hospitality Officer, S Hotels & Resorts, a subsidiary of Singha Estate PCL, concluded, “These newly added six properties will further elevate the portfolio of S Hotels & Resorts to a new level. Our guests can truly relax, play, work, and enjoy a unique experience in quality settings around the world”.
