Dubai hotels shine in latest occupancy data
Emirate notes 10% increase and maintains RevPAR
Dubai recorded a 10.4% year-to-date occupancy increase for the same period last year, according to Deloitte analysis of selected STR Global hotel performance data for the Middle East.
Deloitte cited the city’s “promotional strategies” as a major factor in the positive figures that bucked the overall downward trend for the Middle East region.
Occupancy figures rose from 71.6% to 79% in the year-to-date March comparison.
While RevPAR fell, from US $200.82 to $199.24, the difference was marginal and remained one of the highest RevPAR figures in the world for the year-to-date March 2010 results.
