Hotel & Resort
Some of the most interesting projects in the world are resorts - but a great resort project needs a great funding structure, and that is Capital Corp's strength. We have provided customized debt and equity funding packages for resort and masterplan projects for well over 30 years, and our expertise and field knowledge has made us a widely recognized and respected funding source for resort projects worldwide.
Key Elements of Hotel and Resort Projects

Masterplan/ Phased Development
A masterplan or phased development can become complex when it comes to the funding stage due to so many moving parts and the implications thereof. At Capital Corp, we understand what is required to successfully finance and fund such a type of development.
Branding has become a vital part of how businesses operate, including resorts and hotels. Hard branding, soft branding, lifestyle branding, or boutique/independent branding is key to the identity of the project - and provides investors with a key understanding of how the resort project positions itself on the market.
Real Estate Ownership
Most resort projects have a real estate component - whether it's whole ownership or fractional ownership offering. While this can be lucrative, it must be done right - with a proper maintenance plan, amenities, and marketing strategy. This can include an affiliation with a network or going the independent route. Capital Corp understands well the demands and needs for either option and can customize its funding packages to work best with its clients based on such needs.
Location, Location, Location!
Hotels and resorts can be found anywhere in the world: from the beach or seaside, to the jungle, airports, mountain tops, city-centers, and even deserts. A unique and well thought-out location is a key element of a resort's appeal. We understand the appeal of the perfect location and how important it is to secure it while seeking funding. We can help.
The Eco-Resort Phenomenon
Eco-resorts are a relatively new phenomenon in the hospitality world, and while the first few were usually small and modest, in recent years there has been development in luxury eco-resorts around the world, with stunning results. Funding for eco-resorts can still be tricky as the technology involved in making them so, as well as the specific clientele they attract, can be small or niche enough to present a risk to their successful development. Capital Corp has developed the necessary experience to understand what is required in funding eco-resorts and what it takes to make them successful and mitigate risks involved.
Funding a Hotel or Resort Project
A great feature in funding hotel or resort projects is the fact that:
1) Traditional funding instruments can and often are used, and
2) NO special accommodations or arrangements need to be added on to a funding arrangement involving a resort or hotel development.
The best case scenario is if you (as project promoter/owner) have a strong business plan with detailed phased segments right from the start, should that be necessary, along with written demand (or even pre-sales) from potential clients in the case of real estate add-ons.
Why? Because for investors it is a guarantee of return on their investment, not to mention that it is also a steady guaranteed payment on the debt of the development.
The Funding Process
On the business end of a resort or hotel project, the promoter/ project owner is required to produce essentially the same basic information and documents as he/she would in any other type of project:
• Business Plan
• Feasibility Study (if you have it)
• Any and all information and documents connected with
the project's development, land to be procured, etc.
