LONDON—Hotels in the Asia/Pacific region experienced mixed results in the three key performance metrics for August 2012 when reported in U.S. dollars, according to data compiled by STR Global.
In year-over-year measurements, the Asia/Pacific region’s occupancy ended the month virtually flat with a 0.1-percent decrease to 68.1 percent, its average daily rate rose 0.7-percent to US$139.49 and its revenue per available room was up 0.7 percent to US$95.01.
“Average room rate growth across the Asia/Pacific region slowed down in recent months with a 2-percent increase for the first eight months this year (YTD) after stronger growth performances last year”, said Elizabeth Randall Winkle, managing director at STR Global. “Average rates for YTD are within US$ 4 just below their YTD 2008 performance, reflecting the strong market conditions across most of Asia/Pacific”.
