The Hospitality Cluster is a dynamic, rapidly expanding arm of Seacare Co-operative that acquires and invests in hotels through its global subsidiaries and associate companies.
It draws upon an understanding of the global hospitality trends and market knowledge by proactively discussing potential hotel acquisitions with cross-border partners that specialise in these markets.
The cluster currently boasts a portfolio of 15 hotels in Singapore, Malaysia and the UK.
