The Austrian company HETA, together with companies HETA Beteilingungen GmbH and Istrian Hotels, a member of MK Group, signed an agreement on the sale of 100% stake in all the companies of Skiper Group on October 17, 2017.
As MK Group said, Istrian Hotels sent the best bid at the international tender for the purchase of this luxury complex on the Adriatic, which was completed in late September. All the transaction arrangements are expected to be completed in the upcoming weeks, following which MK Group will have another hotel complex in its portfolio.
– As one of the leading hotel companies in the region, Istrian Hotels, which is part of MK Group, understands how important regional connecting is. We are a serious investor with seven 4- and 5-star hotels, and with the purchase of this prestigious hotel on the Croatian coast, we will certainly increase the level of our hotel and hospitality services. Through our purchase of the prestigious Skiper Resort in Istria, which includes the 5-star Kempinski Adriatic hotel, and our recent cooperation with the Sheraton hotel brand, we will further strengthen our position in the market and I believe that this is an important step towards achieving our goals related to creating a strong regional hotel company which will connect businesses in the most attractive locations and complement other elements within the system – stated Nikola Avram, director of the hotel group operating within the MK system.
