HOTEL INVESTMENT Mercure Samui Taps Property Fund

One of the key investment drivers over the past 2 years which has become more magnified since the 'red shirt effect' has been the decreasing amount of debt for hotel projects.

One market which is being tapped is the domestic property fund sector where the developers of the Mercure Samui Buri Resort are raising a reported THB 828 million.

A guaranteed yield of 6% for the first 5 years is being offered to investors in the fund.
