STR Global: Asia/Pacific results for February
March 25 2013

The Asia/Pacific region’s occupancy ended the month with an 8.1% decrease to 62.5%; its ADR increased 3.5% to $135.50; and its RevPAR was down 4.8% to $84.76.

LONDON—Hotels in the Asia/Pacific region experienced mixed results in the three key performance metrics in February 2013 when reported in U.S. dollars, according to data compiled by STR Global.
In February, the Asia/Pacific region’s occupancy ended the month with an 8.1-percent decrease to 62.5 percent, its average daily rate increased 3.5 percent to US$135.50 and its revenue per available room was down 4.8 percent to US$84.76.

“The region saw strong performance increases across all three key metrics”, said Elizabeth Winkle, managing director of STR Global. “However, China primarily saw decreases across the country due to the Chinese New Year, which fell on 9 February this year (compared with 23 January 2012). The country saw steep declines in both occupancy (-19.9 percent to 48.9 percent) and RevPAR (-13.8 percent to US$52.49). Historically, hotels see a dip in performance during the New Year celebrations as national holidays is observed and commercial activities decrease”.

  • Bangkok, Thailand, rose 10.7 percent to 83.5 percent, reporting the largest occupancy increase.
