Japanese owners putting Hawaiian hotels on the block
The Wall Street Journal, October 11

MAUI, Hawaii – Shimizu Construction Co. has retained Jones Lang LaSalle to sell the 380-room Four Seasons Resort on Maui, which is expected to trade for close to $200 million. And Shinwa Golf, owner of the Renaissance Wailea Beach Resort, is accepting offers for that 345-room property. Japanese hotel owners in Hawaii are taking advantage of high rates and low vacancies by putting their holdings on the block. Nissho Iwai Corp. just completed the sale of the 549-room Ritz-Carlton Kapalua to Marriott International for $143 million. The Japanese trading company couldn't attract a buyer when it put the property on the market two years ago. Now Marriott is paying about 25 percent more than what a buyer would have paid two years ago, said Timothy Haskin of Tishman Hotel Corp., Nissho Iwai's adviser on the deal.
