Room rates fall in Dubai's luxury hotels in December

A new survey of hoteliers HotStats has revealed that room rates in luxury hotels in Dubai decreased during the month of December last year.

Four and five-star hotels in Dubai recorded a 4.6 percent fall in room rates, down to an average of $315.79, and revenues during the same month also fell by 5.9 per cent. Despite the decline, occupancy in hotels in the emirate in December remained strong, averaging at 80.2 per cent.

According to the survey, hotels in Abu Dhabi maintained stable room rates in December, but occupancy levels fell by 5.5 per cent. RevPar (revenue per available room) dropped by 6.9 per cent to an average $130.86, and TRevPAR (total revenue per available room) decreased 7.6 per cent to $268.49.

Dubai and Abu Dhabi are states that make up the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates in the Middle East. Abu Dhabi is the capital of the seven UAEs and it is a popular holiday and business destination for UK travellers.

Tourists can enjoy access to a wide range of diverse attractions, such as Khalifa Park, Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the Marina Mall, and the Abu Dhabi Mall. The waterfront, golden sandy beaches, world-class golf courses, and lush emerald parks provide plenty of opportunities for family activities and relaxation away from the bustling city.

Dubai is a hub for both leisure and business travellers, and the city boasts unique architecture such as the Burj al Arab and the soaring Burj Khalifa, and luxurious accommodation.

Popular tourist attractions include the Dubai Marina, Dubai Mall, Jumeirah Mosque, Jumeirah Beach, Dubai Creek, the Wild Wadi Park, and the three artificial Palm Islands in Dubai that stretch into the Persian Gulf off the sandy shoreline.

The seven United Arab Emirates include Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, and Umm al-Quwain.
