The Hospitality Sector in Portugal

Before taking a look at the available Golden Visa-eligible Hospitality Investment funds, explore why this sector is such a great area to invest in Portugal.

Portugal’s hospitality sector is experiencing unprecedented growth, driven by a booming tourism industry. In 2023, Portugal’s tourism revenue hit a record high, showcasing the country’s increasing appeal to international visitors. The hospitality industry has seen a surge in investments, with the number of hotel stays rising significantly.

According to recent data, Portugal welcomed over 24 million tourists in 2023, contributing to a total revenue of €21 billion. This influx has led to a 15% increase in hotel occupancy rates and a 12% rise in average daily rates.

The Portuguese government has also been proactive in promoting tourism, enhancing infrastructure, and ensuring high service standards. This has created a favorable environment for investors, making Portugal an attractive destination for hospitality investments. The sector’s robust performance is expected to continue, promising substantial returns for stakeholders and further solidifying Portugal’s position as a top travel destination.

Given this dynamic growth, now is an excellent time to invest in Portuguese Golden Visa hospitality funds.
