Preliminary September 2016 data from STR indicates Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, saw a 6.7% occupancy decrease to 68.9%, a 6.4% decrease in ADR to 400.50 Emirati dirham ($109.04) and a 12.6% RevPAR decrease to 275.80 Emirati dirham ($75.09).

LONDON—STR’s preliminary September 2016 data for Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, indicates overall performance declines.

Based on daily data from September, Abu Dhabi reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:

  • an increase in supply (+3.9%) and a decrease in demand (-3.0%);
  • a 6.7% decrease in occupancy to 68.9%;
  • a 6.4% decrease in average daily rate (ADR) to AED400.50; and
  • a 12.6% decrease in revenue per available room (RevPAR) to AED275.80.

The absolute ADR level would be the lowest for a September in Abu Dhabi since 2005. At the same time, ADR in the market increased from last month (AED348.61 in August).

STR analysts attribute the market’s overall performance declines to supply growth substantially outpacing demand.

STR will release actual September 2016 results later this month.
