altBanyan Tree Hotels & Resorts is looking to set up a Middle East hospitality fund worth about $300 million (Dh1.1 billion), said Ho Kwon Ping, Executive Chairman, Banyan Tree Holdings. Currently, the company exists in the Middle East thanks to the presence of two of its brands -- Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts and Angsana.
"If we were to invest in the Middle East, it would be by the way of a development fund. This could happen over a time frame of two to four years. Lets us say that in the next two years, we will start talking to potential investors and then in four years' time we would have a established a development fund for the Middle East,” added Ping.
