The transaction value is approximately $50 million. The deal sees Prince Hotels adding 30 hotels, 12 in Australia, to its portfolio. 

Prince Hotels owns and operates 49 hotels – 42 of them in Japan.

Michael Simpson and Vasso Zographou from Savills Hotels led the transaction team, supported by Sheriden Bacon and Tom Shadbolt.
