Host Hotels enters into agreement to acquire Turtle Bay Resort in Hawaii

Host Hotels & Resorts announced that it entered into an agreement to acquire the fee simple interest in the 450-room Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, including a 49-acre land parcel entitled for development, for approximately $680 million, net of key money. The purchase price allocation is expected to be $630 million for the Resort and $50 million for the Land Parcel, subject to final appraisal. The acquisition price represents a 16.3x EBITDA multiple or a cap rate of approximately 5.3% on the Resort’s 2024 estimated results1. The purchase is subject to customary closing conditions and the transaction is expected to close in late July of 2024. James Risoleo, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are thrilled to enter into an agreement to acquire Turtle Bay Resort, which will further expand and diversify our already strong presence in Hawaii. Oahu is a high demand leisure destination with consistently high occupancy, an internationally diverse demand base, and high barriers to entry, resulting in slightly negative supply growth historically and essentially no anticipated near-term supply. In addition, because of the Resort’s recent transformational renovation, we do not expect meaningful capital expenditures in the near term. We look forward to working with employees and local partners to build upon the Resort’s preeminent position on the North Shore of Oahu. With the planned Ritz-Carlton rebranding, we believe the Resort will generate outsized growth as it stabilizes, further elevating the EBITDA growth profile of our portfolio.”
