Hotel Islantilla Beach Golf Resort in Huelva will be operating as DoubleTree by Hilton

It will be the first and only international franchise hotel on the coast of Huelva and will serve to expand and boost this international holiday destination by consolidating the connection with the Algarve corridor.

  • Last week the signing of the DoubleTree by Hilton franchise for the Islantilla Hotel located in the province of Huelva took place.
  • The hotel, operated since September 2018 by GAT, Gestión de Activos Turísticos, is part of Alantra’s hotel investment portfolio since summer 2018.
  • The reopening of the hotel, now under the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, is scheduled for the end of the first quarter of the year after completion of the renovation and transformation works.

This is not the first project in which both companies are working together, in fact, Alantra REIM’s portfolio is also made up of other assets more managed by GAT; the Hotel Denia Marriott La Sella Golf Resort and Spa which it bought at the beginning of 2018 and the ex-NH in Sotogrande now renamed Hotel Encinar de Sotogrande. Also the apartment resort The Residences La Sella and the 27-hole golf course La Sella Golf.

The signing of the franchise with DoubleTree by Hilton represents a quantitative and qualitative jump in terms of diversification and scope of international markets, a shared advantage from which the investor and the operator benefit but above all the sector is boosted and energized with the consequent growth in line with the positive trend of the last five years.

According to this same consultancy firm, Seville, Malaga, Huelva and Valencia are the relevant destinations that attract hotel investors. In 2019, the average price per room of the hotels transacted experienced a growth of 2.1%, up to 129,500 euros per room, an example of the good dynamics that the hotel market is going through, which has registered record figures during the last three years. In 2019, 16,314 rooms were transacted.
