The term “condotel” isn’t a household name yet. But for starters, yes, it is a combination of a condominium and a hotel, but there’s more to it than people realize. Little do many know that it can become a new source of exciting opportunities for investors and those who want to try investing. Plus, it is also very safe, unlike other investment options, as it promises a guaranteed return-on-investment to unit owners.
      
 
Here’s your guide to how it all works and why condotels are pretty great:

UNDERSTANDING THE CONDOTEL CONCEPT

       

WHY CONDOTEL?

   

No need to worry about advertising, entertaining prospects / documentation / closing deals. Leave it to the experts to do it for you. Just wait for the money to come in!

    

    

WHAT’S A CONDOTEL?

  

It’s a condominium project which operates like a hotel, and includes its services, operations, facilities, and what not. Owners can have their units rented out like other hotel. 

    

   

 WHAT IF ONE UNIT IS RENTED OUT MORE?

  

A unit owner will still be entitled to dividends in net room revenue from all hotel units on per square meter basis. 

       

 

WHY CITIGLOBAL CONDOTEL?

 

We cater to the Overseas Filipino Workers and their needs. We charge a low property management fee, by an experienced international hotel operator. We also provide options to use it for vacation. 

   

Clients purchase condotel units in the same way a condominium can be bought (note that this is not a timeshare property. You own the unit and have a complete right over it).
 
The great thing about condotel is that it will operate as a hotel, following its operation procedures from management to quality-assurance of facilities. Also, a well-experienced, world-class team of hotel operators will run through all of it. 
Unit-owners earn by receiving their“share” of the total profit from the hotel operations.
      
 
Initial agreement between the two parties:
     
 
 On whether the unit owner desires to be a part of the operations and the specifications on the way it will be run should the unit be enrolled into the rental program.
    
    

WHY CHOOSE CONDOTELS

It is true that there is a lesser risk in putting your own money on real estate compared to the stock market. Investing in the former can also give you more profit than leaving one’s money in the bank or other ‘safe’ paper investments such as bonds and mutual funds for the latter.
 
The unit owner is not only entitled to the profit he/ she earned but also entitled to own a share of the value of property in instances of liquidation of the asset or wanting to transfer it on to future generations. Plus, he/ she gets to enjoy the most exciting of all: free hotel stays throughout the year.

 

Every part of the operations in and out of the condotel—from managing to advertising will be provided by the hotel operators themselves, hence the unit owner has nothing to worry about but to sit and wait for the returns to come in. 

 

Financial and operational reports prepared by the operator will be given regularly to the unit owners. 

HOW WILL I EARN?

The unit owner is entitled to a share of net room revenue on a per square meter basis. Thus, there is still profit received even though no one has occupied his / her specific unit. The income will be distributed as dividends, to be paid out monthly / quarterly—in cash/ check/deposit, depending on what has been agreed upon.
 
For example: Diamond Beach Residences earns an average of P1,000,000 / month and has a total of 1,000SQM floor area. 


Unit owner Maine Mendoza owns 25SQM. How much will she earn?
 
1. P1,000,000 / 1,000SQM = P1,000 / SQM
2. P1,000 x 25SQM = P25,000 is how much Maine Mendoza earns / month on average
 
Please see a sample computation of net earnings below, for a 20.72 SQM unit.
   
    
Operational expenses. This includes expenditure on maintenance, direct costs on utilities, insurance coverage, marketing, labor, and advertising expenses, etc. 
● Management expenses. This includes the hotel management fee (more or less 30%). A hotel operator merely earns through a share of rental income and is a good way to make sure there is much effort in renting out the units. This is the NET OF OPERATIONAL EXPENSES. 
 

WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF HAVING A CONDOTEL IN PALAWAN?

World-renowned beauty

     
There’s no denying that Palawan is a very pretty island, if not one of the most stunning in the world. Several publications and surveys around the globe claim it, and even our local Department of Tourism (DOT) hailing it as the “best island in the Philippines.” These are just statements compared to the real thing. Palawan is one of those places that you have to see to believe the hearsays, and what more to have your own home in this paradise.

Beautiful tourist spots

Palawan will never be as beautiful as it was if not for its tourist spots. Here, you will not only get to witness key places that are a feast to the eyes, it also won awards abroad. The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park is part of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. And who wouldn’t remember the Tubbataha Reef that got two silver awards, given by the World Future Council (WFC) because of its excellence in preserving marine life.
 
Note that these two (and many more) are valuable not solely for its appearance, but for its contribution to nature cultivation. It isn’t surprising that they were labelled as world heritage sites by the UNESCO.
    
    
 

Free of pollution

 
Cleanliness here is heavily enforced by residents and the local government. There is a reason why tourists keep coming back to swim and gush over beautiful sights, and it has something to do with a strict ordinance. Who wouldn’t trade this over traffic smokes and car noises, right?
   
    
 

A very welcoming and friendly community

 
Like every community across the Philippines, Palawan residents are very hospitable and approachable. Make a friend, create a bigger pool of connections here. Oh, and don’t forget to smile in return!
     
   
 

Affordability

This is probably a surprising claim but it’s true that Palawan living is now affordable. CitiGlobal’s latest venture, the Diamond Beach Residences is set to create more meaningful and worry-free decisions. With a no down payment option for all units, you can now easily purchase a piece of this paradise. Plus, you can enjoy spending time with your families on your long list of amenities and the most exciting of all, the condotel experience. 
    
 
Condotels are essentially a combination of a condominium unit with the luxurious service of a hotel. Did we say that you can also transform your unit into an income generating business? Truly, a worth it investment!

WHAT IS THE ASSURANCE THAT MY UNIT WILL BE RENTED OUT?

The condotel operations provide a smooth income stream.
    
 
Palawan is a globally-renowned province in the Philippines, regularly visited by not just Filipinos, but foreigners as well. There will be plenty of future establishments surrounding the area, and tourist spots such as the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park and Tubbataha Reef, two UNESCO heritage sites.
   
    
 
Another factor is that the hotel management will be in charge of the operations. They’ll have a well-thought and researched marketing and advertising initiatives which includes partnerships with booking sites, coupon deals and other promos that’ll keep people coming in, even during the lean season. 




This is a property primarily constructed for business purposes and was set from the beginning to operate as a hotel. (Though having it used as a residential unit is also possible.)
   
   
   
 

WHY IS NOW THE BEST TIME TO INVEST?

Take advantage of the pre-selling rates and payment schemes (no down payment, long-term installment). Enjoy a 200-300% increase in unit value upon full construction, should you decide to put up your unit for sale any time after turnover.
   
   
Palawan is the best place in the Philippines to live in for many reasons. Grab the opportunity now while it is still in your hands!

No, only the condominium corporation / homeowners’ association will be RENEWED every 50 years, not the structure itself.

 How will we inform the hotel operator of our interest in staying in our unit?
There will be a system and conditions for informing the hotel operator in advance, which will be finalized and discussed with the unit owners before turn-over.

Yes, this is possible.
 
 As a unit owner, can I decide to pull out of the condotel operations?
