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

In January, the Asia/Pacific region’s occupancy ended the month with a 7.7% increase to 65.2%; its ADR decreased 6.3% to $130.39; and its RevPAR was up 1% to $85.

LONDON—Hotels in the Asia/Pacific region experienced mixed results in the three key performance metrics in January 2013 when reported in U.S. dollars, according to data compiled by STR Global.
In January, the Asia/Pacific region’s occupancy ended the month with a 7.7-percent increase to 65.2 percent, its average daily rate decreased 6.3 percent to US$130.39 and its revenue per available room was up 1.0 percent to US$85.00.

“Despite having a 6.3-percent ADR decline in U.S. dollars for January 2013, the occupancy increase of 7.7 percent for the month helped the region achieve a positive RevPAR growth of 1 percent in USD”, said Elizabeth Randall Winkle, managing director of STR Global. “For Central and South Asia, India is driving down the ADR with a drop of 9.3 percent USD for the month of January. Northeast Asia, which includes the regions of China and Japan, had their year-over-year changes impacted by the Chinese New Year. In 2013, the celebrations were held entirely in February, whereas in 2012 it was split between January and February. Overall, Northeast Asia saw an ADR decline of 11.2 percent in USD”.
