France, Paris. July 08, 2019

Tikehau Capital (Paris:TKO), the alternative asset management and investment group, with Le Groupe de l'Hôtellerie, the hotel management, investment and development specialist, acquire two hotels in central Paris through Tikehau Capital's Real Estate value-added fund.

The Hotel Corona Opéra and the Hotel Touraine Opéra are both three star hotels with a combined capacity of 97 rooms. These hotels are located in the historical 9th district of Paris, close to the Paris Opera and the large department stores. Built during the 19th century, the hotels have strong potential for development while the hospitality and leisure sector in Paris is growing 1 and offers many opportunities.

A third acquisition for Tikehau Capital's Real Estate value-added fund This operation is Tikehau Capital's Real Estate Value-Added fund third acquisition following its partnership with Bouygues Immobilier, for the Charenton-Bercy redevelopment project in the Greater Paris area, and the acquisition of the Nicholsons Shopping Center in Maidenhead, United Kingdom.

Launched in June 2018, this pan-European value-added fund investing across all asset classes is a vehicle that offers co-investment opportunities to large institutional investors.

Tikehau Capital's Head of Real Estate Frédéric Jariel said: "This investment is another step in the deployment of our value-added fund and confirms our interest in the hospitality sector as part of the dynamic expansion of our Real Estate activity".

An operation carried out in collaboration with Le Groupe de l'Hôtellerie Le Groupe de l'Hôtellerie is a French based hotel management, investment and development specialist, which accompanies Tikehau Capital as a hospitality-operating partner.

Le Groupe de l'Hôtellerie's CEO Gilles Douillard added: "We are excited to work closely with Tikehau Capital on this operation. The hospitality sector offers many opportunities for value-added development projects and we are pleased to share our expertise to support this project".

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
