The tourism sector is the large sector globally. Prior to COVID, the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) estimated that the broader tourism sector accounted for 1 in 4 of all new jobs created across the world, 10.3% of all jobs (333 million), and 10.3% of global GDP ($9.6 trillion). International visitor spending amounted to $1.8 trillion in 2019 (6.8% of total exports).

In 2020 and 2021, tourism arrivals saw a significant decline due to COVID and the ensuring flight disruptions and lock-downs. In 2022, significant recovery has been seen, with destinations such as Greece recovering to nearly 2019-levels in terms of arrivals, and Cyprus reaching approximately 80% of arrivals. 

Since our inception, we have supported investors evaluate the risks and financial benefits of investing in tourism. Whether this is a hotel or tourism villa investment; an investment in yachting or spa tourism; or a wider destination upgrade; Navigator Consulting has an in-depth experience in the sector, spanning multiple business cycles. 


We work on behalf and buy-side investors as well as hotel owners and manager to implement detailed due diligence on hotel investment, in terms of both greenfield and existing properties and infrastructure.  

Our services include: 

  • Detailed Legal, Commercial, Operational and Financial Due Diligence; 

  • 3-Year Historic Financial and Operational Analysis;

  • 5- or 10-Year Future Financial and Operational Modelling;

  • Detailed Capital Expenditure and Hotel Turn-Around Planning;

  • Financial Scenarios, Sensitivities and Stress-Testing of Hotel Investments; 

  • Other Investment Support including Data Room Development;

Our smallest hotel investment to date has been on the order of EUR 920,000; our largest single hotel investment has been over EUR 1 billion.
