KSL Capital Acquires Les Hôtels d’en Haut From Perseus Group
KSL Capital Partners has acquired Les Hôtels d’en Haut, through an affiliate, from Perseus Group, a European hotel developer, owner and operator. Les Hôtels d’en Haut operates five boutique hotels in premier leisure markets across France. This is KSL’s first significant acquisition in continental Europe.
Eric Darde will serve as the Company’s President and COO, continuing to grow his leadership role which began in 2014. Darde said, “Les Hôtels d’en Haut is a group of extraordinary properties, made better by very high standards upheld by our committed team members. KSL has owned and operated some of the most prestigious properties in the world, including many in mountain and beach locations. We could not be more fortunate to have a company such as KSL to invest in and help to grow our Company.”
“At KSL Capital Partners, our primary focus is to invest in travel and leisure properties, and we understand the importance of hotels to their local community,” said Martin Edsinger, Senior Vice President at KSL. “Les Hôtels d’en Haut is a hotel company that truly celebrates the desire to travel. We are very excited to step into the stewardship of Les Hôtels d’en Haut and look forward to not only investing in these hotels but bringing the Les Hôtels d’en Haut to new locations with the same ethos.”
