LONDON—STR’s preliminary November 2017 data for Dubai, United Arab Emirates, indicates significant growth in supply and demand.
Based on daily data from November, Dubai reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:
- Supply: +5.6%

- Occupancy: -2.7% to 87.0%
- Average daily rate (ADR): -1.1% to AED754.11

Demand (roomnights sold) reached an all-time high for a November in Dubai, and occupancy was well above the November average (83.6%). Occupancy also eclipsed 90% four consecutive nights around the Dubai Airshow, which was held 12-16 November. STR analysts cite supply growth as the reason behind the year-over-year decreases in occupancy and ADR.
