Sales Revenue:
$100K - $250K (USD)
Cash Flow:

Sometimes, just sometimes, things that seem too good to be true, generally are - but not in this case - this is as good as it gets and for all the right reasons.

It is located on the world famous Thresher Shark Island of Malapascua in the Philippines.

The hotel sits exclusively on a small hill 1-minute away from the main port area and the main tourist belt and boasts the Island's most stunning sunsets.

Built in July 2020, the hotel is a brand-new turn-key 4-room hotel with a fully fitted bar and kitchen sitting on a 1,000 sqm leased property with plenty of land still available for the addition of more rooms, bungalows and/or an exclusive dive centre. The hotel also houses a 9-hole mini golf course but can be removed to make way for additional open air space, gardens or better still - more bungalows.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has never opened - until now!

The hotel comes without the headaches of setting up a business. It's fully constructed and finished, registered with the SEC and local government units, goes well beyond the minimal environmental requirements, has all the business permits for operation and is completely and wholly debt-free.

Anyone purchasing the hotel shall be able to start turning business over immediately.

Please note (this is important). Please DO NOT use the default and generic "Please tell me more about this business" as it will not considered as serious interest (as previous experience has shown) and as such it won't receive a reply. Please send a properly worded message instead.

Wishing everyone well and thanks.

Hotel is located on Malapascua Island in Northern Cebu and is nestled on a 1000sqm tree-lined hilltop property that exudes spectacular views of the Island and the marine-protected waters surrounding the Island. Guests can enjoy the peace and quiet of the natural environment without the hustle and bustle of a busy diving tourist destination yet can still benefit of the 1 - 2 minute proximity of everything else on the Island.

Premises Details:

The rooms are large and though priced for 2-pax comfortably houses up-to 4-pax as two rooms house two Queen-sized beds while the other two rooms house a King-sized bed and a Queen-sized sofa bed.

Each room comes with its own 1.5 HP Split AC. Double-glazed windows coupled with concrete style floor tiles help to keep the rooms cool. Sliding barn doors open to a beautiful, modern, and sleek bathroom design.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

The business plan includes expansion plans for additional rooms, 6 - 8 luxury bungalows to be more precise. If so inclined, the new owner could open a small and exclusive dive centre just for hotel guests rather than have guests go to the sometimes overly busy dive operations - especially during peak seasons.

Competition / Market:

The reason for opening a mid-to high end hotel was due to the lack of decent accommodation on the Island and the general lack of accommodation for divers/tourists during the peak seasons.

Competition for this range of hotel is light with only 4 other hotels of equal quality on the Island. More importantly for guests who need to wake up early for the thresher shark dives, the hotel is located on a very quiet spot and yet merely a minute away from the main tourist belt.

Reasons for selling:

The Managing Partner (other 2 partners are silent and have agreed to sell) was involved in a motorcycle accident the injury sustained requires rehabilitation and therefore the Managing Partner cannot undertake the day-to-day running and ownership of the hotel. The rehabilitation will take at least another year.

This is very much so; a reluctant sale of a long-life dream of mine to own a hotel.
