The Netherlands/UK: Amsterdam-based Eden Hotels has created and launched a new parent corporate company, Zien Group.
Zien Group was created to hold owned and operated hospitality businesses, including Eden Hotels and all future brands.
Plans from the new company include a €50 million investment into the existing portfolio, refurbishing some Eden properties as well as creating a new brand by initially reimagining other assets.
The Dijkstra family founded the Eden Hotels brand in 1947. Today, there are 14 properties in total located across the Netherlands.
KSL Capital Partners acquired a majority stake in Eden Hotels last year. The private equity firm focuses on five sectors within travel and leisure: hospitality, recreation, clubs, real estate and travel services.
CEO Billy Skelli-Cohen said: “The support and investment from KSL and the Dijkstra family allows us to unlock potential by elevating the hotels in our portfolio, and enabling our plans to grow across Europe and the UK. This marks the start of a transformational moment for our group and our team – it’s incredibly exciting and I am thrilled to be part of it.”
Zien Group is looking to expand both Eden Hotels and the new brands beyond the Netherlands and is actively looking at opportunities in Europe and the UK. Further information about Zien Group can be found here.
