The recently opened Grand Hyatt Wailea Resort and Spa on Maui cost $600mill about $800,000 per room, to build. Daily operating expenses average $135 a room if occupied and $80 a room if unoccupied (much of the labor cost of running a hotel is fixed) at an average room rate of $500 a night. A marginal tax of 40%, and a cost of capital of 11%, what year round occupancy rate do the Japanese investors who financed the Grand Hyatt Wailea require to break even in economic terms on their investment over its estimated 40 yr. life? What is the likelihood that this investment will have a positive NPV? Assume that the $450 million expense of building the hotel can be written off straight line over a 30yr period (the other$150 million is for the land which is not depreciable) and that the present value of the hotels terminal value will be $200million
