One's problem is another's treasure: The Isrotel hotel chain announced yesterday (Wednesday) the purchase of the Sea of ​​Galilee Hotel, located on the western shore of the Sea of ​​Galilee in Migdal, for NIS 225 million.



The purchase of the hotel will be made together with a financial partner (whose name was not specified), with whom the Israeli hotel chain will share the maintenance of the hotel equally, while its management will be entirely in its hands.



The hotel has 212 rooms and started operating in 2019, mainly for the benefit of foreign tourism hosting that comes to the area.

Restricting entry to Israel since the Corona crisis began, led to a sharp decline in hotel occupancy, which also made it difficult to attract local audiences - Isrotel's expertise.



The hotel is still owned by the Tal family, which also owns the Recital Hotel in the city of Tiberias, and subject to the completion of the transaction, the family is expected to hand over the hotel to Isrotel as early as the first quarter of 2022.

The hotel will join the 20 hotels currently owned by Isrotel, along with the 12 other hotels it is currently building throughout the country;

8 in Tel Aviv, 2 in the Dead Sea and 2 more in Mitzpe Ramon.

Lior Raviv, CEO of Isrotel, told Walla! Money: "Our guests have been asking for some time why Isrotel does not have a hotel on the Sea of ​​Galilee, and a period when we are working on locating a hotel in the area.

Sea of ​​Galilee is perfect for us, both due to its exceptional location, the beach adjacent to the hotel, the internal and external public areas, and being a working hotel, continuing our momentum of development in the north.



The purchase obviates for us the need to build a hotel in the area, which takes about 10 years to locate and purchase land and then construction.

As those who currently build 12 hotels, we are full of experience with the requirements of bureaucracy and regulation, and their significance, also in terms of time, is saved in purchasing an existing hotel.



The entrepreneur Avihu Tal did an excellent entrepreneurial job at the hotel, and we expect an additional investment of about NIS 10 million in favor of the necessary adjustments in the aspects of the chain. "

Surprising results, despite the corona

Isrotel was able to meet the demands of the Israeli public and was the center of hotel room reservations in Israel with the opening of the possibility of receiving domestic tourism in hotels this year.

This helped the chain succeed in the first half of 2021 with revenues of NIS 593.4 million, which is a 107.3% increase in its revenues in the corresponding period in the corona year.



Not only that, this is a decrease of only 12.6% from the first half that the chain experienced in the peak year before Corona - 2019, when it entered NIS 679.1 million in the same period, in which it operated for a full six months, and not 4 months as experienced in the first half this year.



The results of the hotel chain's operating profit were even more surprising, as they stood at NIS 91.3 million and NIS 52.8 million, respectively, in the first half of the year, thus surpassing those it achieved in the first half of the peak year (2019), when the operating and net profit was 76.6 NIS 1 million and NIS 40.5 million, respectively.
