Odyssey co-founder and CEO Alex Walker said the two companies will complement each other in this partnership.

“Odyssey’s expertise in the Asian hotel real estate market and Swiss-Belhotel International’s drive to deliver high-quality hotel experiences to their guests complement each other,” he said.

“Our mutually shared principles and commitment to delivering value and quality lay the foundation for shared future success. Odyssey is confident that with the expertise and experience of Swiss-Belhotel International, and their standards proven brands, they will be well received by the Japanese and Asian hotel industry.
