Hotels in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, reported occupancy decreased 2.7% to 87% in November, according to preliminary STR data. ADR also fell 1.1% to 754.11 Emirati dirhams ($205.34), which pushed RevPAR down 3.8% to 655.84 Emirati dirhams ($178.58).

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%
  • Demand: +2.7%
  • Occupancy: -2.7% to 87.0%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): -1.1% to AED754.11
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -3.8% to AED655.84

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.

STR will release full November 2017 results later this month. The November edition of STR’s Dubai Market Forecast is now available.
