SINGAPORE – Serviced apartment specialist Oakwood has announced a significant milestone: the company will focus exclusively on hospitality management.  

It is transitioning out of its global solutions business by entering a strategic partnership with global relocation specialist Dwellworks

Oakwood said in a statement, “This significant new phase in the evolution of Oakwood will allow the brand to focus on enhancing its services on-property and transform into a true hospitality management company.”

Over the last few years, Oakwood has expanded its own portfolio of branded properties, especially in Asia Pacific

There are now more than 80 Oakwood properties around the world and the company has a commitment to double its portfolio of managed properties by 2025. Twenty properties are slated to open in the next two years in Asia Pacific.

Through the agreement, Dwellworks has an exclusive licence to Oakwood’s technology platform, an end-to-end accommodations management solution, and access to a fully-vetted supply chain for housing solutions.
