THPT Comment: Kew Green, started in the UK, as a hotel management company, was sold to Chinese, HK CTS Metropark Hotels in August 2015, for around US$620m by the then owners, Goldman Sachs and TPG Special Situations. They now own and operate 55 plus hotels in the UK…so logical move to open up in Asia.
