Main Activities

Borealis structures, consults and monitors its hotel projects from start until opening of the hotel.


By signing a lease at the start of the project, Borealis becomes the owner of the operation.

In addition Borealis owns hotels as a result of add-on’s to the platform.

About Us

Borealis is a fast-expanding European hospitality company, which was founded in 1997. Based on it’s expertise and strong track record the group has built and sold various hotel portfolio’s and has been involved in many hotel deals with an aggregate value of around EUR 3 billion. After the last sale of a former portfolio, Borealis started building its present portfolio in 2016 with the ambition to further grow as a pan-European leader in the hotel industry. Backed by  institutional investors the company has been able to accelerate it’s growth by both greenfield projects and the take-over in August 2022 of Bierwirth & Kluth Hotel Management GmbH. This gave Borealis an immediate significant presence in the interesting DACH region. Today the company is active in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Austria, Hungary, Denmark and Sweden. All our hotels are branded by highly reputable global hotel chains, with whom Borealis has a strong partnership.

Our ambition is to continue our growth by both initiating new hotel projects as well as further add-ons to the platform, preferably in the countries where we have presence already, as well as in other European countries.
