Have careful planning and accurate strategies so that the results of your hotel business profits can be optimal. Here comes the planning strategy!
# 1 Establishing Capital
Starting a hotel investment business requires a lot of capital. But that doesn’t mean you need to prepare 100% capital. You can prepare half of it and the rest you can borrow from the bank.
# 2 Create a Feasibility Study or Feasibility Study
A feasibility study will be very helpful in building a business because it can provide a clear and detailed picture of the business prospects that will be run.
With a feasibility study, you can determine the number of rooms that must be built, the various facilities that will be offered up to the amount of benefits you will get, and how long it will take that benefit. This feasibility study will prevent big losses that you might bear because you plan carefully. You need to consult this plan with a professional hotel business consultant.
# 3 Taking care of building permits and cooperation with construction consultants or architects
To build a hotel, of course you need to pocket a number of permits from related state institutions. One of them is a building permit, which is also accompanied by the design drawings of the hotel that have been made by the architect. Include in planning to involve architects with trusted track records and who can work together to design and build hotels in a cost efficient manner.
# 4Designate a Supervising Contractor and Consultant
If the design of your hotel has been completed and the building permit or building permit from the local government has been signed, the next step is to determine the hotel construction contractor. They are the party who will execute the existing designs which can be obtained through a tender or direct contact.
While determining the contractor who will work on the hotel construction, you also need to contact the Supervision Consultant who will be responsible for monitoring the progress of the construction. This is very important so that the construction process carried out by the contractor can be well monitored so that the construction completion plan can be realized according to the previously planned deadline.
Here is Message to candidates and hotel entrepreneurs
To candidates and hotel entrepreneurs as well as top hotel management executives so that they will know more that currently the business map has changed, so we must change in selling hotel products, starting from the price strategy, marketing to packaging that must be considered. .

Meanwhile, to maintain the market, existing hotel business owners need to create new business models, if they want to continue to experience increased occupancy. In Solo, there are more and more hotels, the more productive, the occupancy decreases. Like in the city of Solo today, for four stars I predict the return on investment could be over 15 years. As for smart, investing in hotels is building the hotel for no more than six months and the BEP for less than five years
