CDL Hospitality Trusts Acquires Luxury Resort In Maldives
CDL Hospitality Real Estate Investment Trust (CDLHT) has purchased a luxury resort, Jumeirah Dhevanafushi which is located in Meradhoo Island, Republic of Maldives. The property was sold at US$59.6m ($74.8m) and will be fully financed with debt. The Jumeirah Dhevanafushi comes with 16 over-water villas and 19 beachfront villas with private pools, as well as a wide range of dining, leisure and spa options within the property. 2 additional beachfront villas are expected to be completed in 2014 as part of the acquisition. Despite the ongoing re-development works, the property has raked in revenue per available room of US$754 in 9M13. Along with the growing demand for tourism in Maldives, CDLHT is positioned to further benefit from Maldives’s buoyant hospitality sector with a second acquisition in Maldives in 2013. After the acquisition, on a pro-forma basis, annualised distribution yield would rise from 7.3% to 7.5%.

Oxley Enters JV To Develop Land In Malaysia
Oxley Holdings via its subsidiary, Oxley Ruby, has entered into a joint venture (JV) agreement with Peninsular Teamwork (PT). Under the agreement, Oxley Ruby will be granted rights to develop a freehold tenure land plot located in Malaysia’s state of Selangor which is owned by PT. The land, with an aggregate area of 15.3 acres, is currently undeveloped and holds an agricultural status. Meanwhile, PT shall apply for approval from the relevant authority for the land to be developed into a residential project of 900 residential units. Unlike other developers in Singapore who have swarmed into the residential sector of Iskandar, Malaysia, Oxley has particularly avoided it which seems wise as that sector may potentially face oversupply conditions.
