East Capital Real Estate has sold the GoSpa hotel building in Kuressaare
Ellex Partner Martin Käerdi and Associate Karin Tartu advised East Capital Real Estate on the sale of GoSpa hotel bulding to Cornada OÜ.
Fund manager East Capital Real Estate has sold the GoSpa hotel building in Kuressaare, with a total area of over 6,600 square metres. The hotel is located on the attractive Saaremaa island resort, near the harbour, the city park and the picturesque 13th century Bishop’s Castle.
The hotel has been sold to a company related to the operator that owns a number of high quality and popular hotels accross the region. East Capital Real Estate has managed and developed the property together with the operator since 2006 on behalf of the East Capital Baltic Property Fund.
Georg Ots Spa Hotel opened its doors in 2004 and was the first wellness spa in Estonia. It has 92 rooms, a spa, a wellness and conference centre and a top-class restaurant with scenic sea views. The hotel was fully renovated in 2014-2015.
According to Albin Rosengren, Partner, East Capital Group, feelings about the sale of the Gospa hotel are mixed:
“On the one hand, it is a pity that such a much loved and iconic landmark in the Estonian wellness and spa landscape is exiting our portfolio. On the other hand, we are pleased to hand it over to the operator that clearly is the best possible party to continue the development in the coming decades. We are confident that they will continue to provide the best combination of high-quality services to Gospa customers and also develop the concept further. With over 16 years of cooperation with Gospa, there is a long and proven track record and we wish the new owner much success.“
The seller was advised on the transaction by Ellex in Estonia and Redgate Capital in cooperation with Newsec Baltics.
