As expected, hospitality REITs will take more time to recover, perhaps only in 2024, say CGS-CIMB Research analysts Eing Kar Mei and Lock Mun Yee in an October 1 note.

“We had expected a recovery in tourist arrivals towards the end of 2020 but with Singapore only allowing tourists from New Zealand, Brunei, Australia and Vietnam so far, we think our FY2021-2022F Singapore RevPAR (revenue per available room) for the REITs are overly bullish,” write Eing and Lock.
