Horwath HTL was asked to assess the feasibility of converting a former monastery into a hotel and to carry out a valuation of the real estate. Vitalization is central to this concept, partly because of the surroundings of the monastery, but also because of the concept of the hotel. The hotel will provide treatment rooms and there will be no televisions in the rooms.
Horwath HTL was asked to determine the market space for a hotel development in the municipality of IJsselstein. Various analysis of the market has been carried out to determine the space in the municipality. The project includes a new public recreation and nature area including a four-star hotel with a minimum of 140 and a maximum of 200 rooms.
The proprietor of this luxury boutique hotel overlooking Lago Maggiore in Ticino intended to re-position the hotel as a Medical Wellness Hotel in order to extend the season or allow for a year-round operation. Horwath HTL was instructed to review the proposed concept including medical centre, spa and treatment areas, and to carry out a Feasibility Study to test the economic sustainability of such a re-positioning.
We undertook an in-depth analysis of the Swiss Medical Wellness sector, thoroughly screened the competitive hotels, target markets and groups as well as market trends. In our study we provided facility recommendations and we listed potential government aids available for health projects. A profit and loss forecast based on the above completed this instruction. Lastly, we were able to procure a new General Manager for the hotel.
The new GM assumed his position in January 2017.
After three decades in office, the hotel manager went into retirement. The owner Credit Suisse Group AG took this opportunity to plan a comprehensive restructuring of the hotel, so they could position it in the international luxury segment. The property should undergo a substantial refurbishment programme and the operation should be managed by an internationally reputed hotel management company, thereafter. Both measures should serve to notably increase the real estate value. Horwath HTL’s expertise was called upon to help understand and evaluate the consequences of several scenarios.
Horwath HTL Switzerland provided a comprehensive documentation which served as a basis for decision-making. Therein we detailed several possible scenarios, we prepared the relevant financial projections and their expected impact on the real estate value. In a first phase Horwath HTL was able to support the restructuring process by sourcing a new hotel manager who was able to markedly improve the hotel’s performance. Parallel, negotiations with global leading hotel management companies were conducted with regard to the future operation and refurbishment planning. Horwath HTL Switzerland has continually lent their expertise to the negotiation process. Finally, Credit Suisse Group AG has decided to sign a management agreement with Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.
The contracts were signed in November 2020; the last and final details of refurbishment will be decided on in the very near future. Construction works shall start as soon as building approvals have been received.

One building in prominent location within the Eaux-Vives district of Geneva was offered for acquisition to a Swiss investor. The investor required advice on the feasibility of having this property operated as Serviced Apartments by an affiliated management company.
