Four of the African hotel industry’s pre-eminent consultants have joined forces to launch Hotel Partners Africa (HPA).
W Hospitality Group; Leisure Property Services; Hotel Spec; and Vernon Page have united to create HPA. The consultancy aims to offer a comprehensive range of services to hotel owners, operators and investors, from initial feasibility to sale and exit.
Collectively, HPA’s founding consultants have won Ai Tourism Investment of the Year (2008 and 2011), produced numerous reports on hospitality investment prospects in Africa, arranged finance for dozens of hospitality projects, and advised on every aspect of hotel ownership.
HPA director Vernon Page said: “Africa has conspicuously lacked an integrated complete-solutions provider with the credentials to provide a seamless and professional advisory service throughout the lifecycle of a hotel project. By creating this ‘one-stop shop’, Hotel Partners Africa is filling that gap in the market. Our aim is to build long-standing relationships with major players, particularly the hotel chains, developers, fund managers, contractors and property owners and to provide them with a comprehensive and highly proactive service.”
