Brazil Hotel Market - 54 New Hotels/10,591 New Rooms in 2018

Brazil has been on the world-stage as of late, largely due to hosting the World Cup in 2014 and the Summer Olympics in 2016.

Whenever a country plays host to these honors, it must increase its hospitality infrastructure, adding many new hotels and rooms in order to accommodate a sudden influx of guests. Brazil was no exception undergoing a massive wave of growth in the lead up to those two world-famous sporting events.

The growth for Brazil, however, has also continued. Brazil is poised to have one of its most significant hotel construction years yet in 2018. The database currently shows that there are 54 new hotels in Brazil’s project pipeline, and when they are completed they will yield a total of 10,591 new rooms for guests.

Of these 54 hotels, 34 are currently slated to be finished in 2018. This will result in one of the biggest years for the country’s hospitality sector in decades. With that in mind, it’s important for savvy hotel owners and operators to stay abreast of some of the hottest projects coming soon to Brazil.
