My personal view is AHUN is better than KHL but AHPL is the best in hotel sector.

I would NOT invest either KHL or AHUN in next few months. Both look overly valued to me.

The best hotel sector share for me is CHOT. However I would wait till they release the Q4 results(+ market conditions) before jump in to it. CHOT already completed the hardest stage of the journey.

http://forum.srilankaequity.com/t2967-hotel-sector-growth-tourist-arrivals-revised-to-800000?highlight=CHOT

RENU is a good share but it is something between a hotel and an investment fund.

CONN also a strong candidate. They showed excellent profits last year thanks to REEF deals. It wil be interesting to see Q4 results without any one off gains.

If you want me to select the best out of AHUN & KHL then I would go for AHUN.

I would chose AHUN

But I would like someone to explain this to me. i havent got a satisfying answer yet.

80% of KHL - owned by JKH
78.8% of AHPL -owned by JKH

JKH is performing well along with AHPL. Good stocks
But why isnt KHL?
JKH owns Cinnamon hotels in srilanka and maldives, chaaya in sri lanka and maldives, and bentota beach hotel.
Cinnamon In srilanka operated by AHPL.

But why is KHL not performing.? any one could give a logical explaination to this. What the fact behind these numbers?
Is it that, non of these are now belonging to KHL, now under JKH even though its quoted in the list. Then it should be removed right?

16.80 is the latest price of KHL.

At this moment of time, I'd chose neither.. In hotels AHPL, HSIG, RENU are way better prospective shares.

Agree with you econ. If I see any run in Hotel sector shares in the near future other than RENU, it may likely be due to manipulation. I cannot expect financial reports from hotels for sometime that will justify current price levels.

If i am not mistaken, they gave the rights of the loss making Maldives operations and extended the lease period of a profit making venture

Considering YoY growth, I would go with GHLL and AHPL.

Same as most of CHOT chain hotels, GHLL also recently completed a major refurbishment. Even though their accumulated losses are high GHLL is recovering pretty well..

I notice that CHOT is almost near the 52k low. now trading at 30.80LKR and 52k low is 30. So i lets hope this has already hit the bottom....

AHPL is the most economical on all hotels it seems, it trades at a good discount to sector.. Also second one is HSIG.. Ppl yet to realise the potential of these..
Large market caps are not the best to follow on.. Mid caps are really attractive in med-long term..

AHUN-long term buy

*Aitken Spence Hotel Holdings PLC (AHUN) - backed by one of the top conglomerates in Sri Lanka, Aitken Spence PLC (SPEN), is a leading hotelier in the country with its operations spanning across the Asian as well as the Middle Eastern regions. The company presently owns or manages 27 hotels and resorts under the brands “Heritance”, “Adaaran” and “Aitken Spence Hotels & Resorts” in Sri Lanka,
the Maldives, India and Oman with a total room capacity of 2,300.

*AHUN currently owns and operates 6 hotels (of which 2 hotels with 64 rooms are currently closed for extensive refurbishment) with 565 rooms in Sri Lanka along with 2 other properties with collectively 216 rooms held as associates. The company also
manages 3 hotels in the upcountry. In the Maldives, the group owns and operates 7 hotels with 591 rooms under its premier foreign brand “Adaaran” while managing a total of 10 hotels in India and Oman.

*With the anticipation of greater arrivals to Sri Lanka in the medium term, AHUN embarked on several new projects in order to increase its capacity.

*EARNINGS OUT LOOK
--With a solid recovery in the local tourism industry along with an increase in AHUN’s room capacity, the company stands to enjoy strong returns in the medium term. AHUN continues to place strategic importance on delivering a niche, high quality product to the high yielding travellers, thus volumes will not be of great concern. However, the local segment is likely to see the closure of around 300 rooms during the off season period in 2011 (April – September) which should have only a marginal impact for earnings in FY12E. However, with most of its properties expected to be operational by the beginning of the winter season, we expect AHUN to recover its lost earnings through higher room rates and occupancies

---The group’s parent company SPEN, owns 100 acres of prime beach land in
Nilaweli where AHUN is expected to commence the development of a resort in the
medium term. This includes a 500 room property offering luxury villas, standard
rooms and apartments.

---AHUN places greater emphasis on expanding its footprint in Sri Lanka
given high potential exhibited by the industry. The Government aims to attract
an ambitious target of 2.5 million tourists by 2016 which would require at least
another 15,000 graded rooms to cater to this demand. Although local as well as
foreign operators have shown interest in expanding the room supply, we expect a
time lag of at least 2 years for these projects to become operational, until which
time, the current properties would enjoy high yields

---Despite its investments in Sri Lanka, we expect the South Asian segment to
be the largest contributor to group earnings, albeit a reduction in its share due to
increased contribution from the local segment. For forecasting purposes, we have
factored in an average occupancy of 75% in FY12E for the local segment on an
ARR of US $ 120 while for the Maldivian segment, we have included an occupancy
of 85% with an ARR of around US $ 293.

---Given the above, we expect AHUN to post Rs. 1,450 million in PAT for
FY11E, growing at a CAGR of around 28% during the next 2 years with the local
segment accounting for over 50% of operating profit. Adjusted for the minority
holdings, we expect earnings to equity to reach Rs. 958 million for FY11E, growing
at a CAGR of 33% during the next 2 years. On a forecasted EPS of Rs. 2.81 and
Rs. 3.82 for FY11E and FY12E respectively, the share is trading at a PE multiple
of 36x and 26x FY11E and FY12E earnings respectively, at a price of Rs. 100.10.
The share is therefore, trading at a slight premium to the sector which we believe
is warranted due to its high exposure to the Sri Lankan as well as the Maldivian
tourism industries compared to most other standalone properties
