By the end of2023, the hospitality industry has by and large moved on from one of the mostchallenging periods in its recent history. The pandemic has blatantly exposedvulnerabilities and thrown many a challenge across the gamut of stakeholders.

While most ofus are not keen to look back on these dire straits, the effects are lingeringand at times brought profound changes. Assets may have changed hands, ownersfind themselves under financial duress, and financing for construction,acquisition and renovation has become more challenging on the back of risinginterest rates and inflation. The industry will take time to adapt and evolve.

Under the newfundamentals, hotel development has become more expensive. As a result,pipeline room growth has slowed down. At the same time, the rise ofbranded esidences continues and will not go away. The major operators seemto have fared well, as many registered a net room growth in excess of 10% inline with the growth in existing supply.
