Dubai luxury hotel rates continue to decline during January 2016

Hotel room rates in Dubai continued to fall in January this year, according to a recent survey by HotStats. The average room rate for four and five-star hotels in Dubai fell by 9.3 per cent year-on-year in January, and this follows an overall 6.7 per cent fall in rates throughout 2015.

The average nightly room rate for luxury hotels in the emirate for January this year was $312.83, with revenue per available room (RevPAR) down by 9.7 per cent, compared to the same time last year. The decrease in room rates is believed to be caused by an oversupply in the luxury hotel sector in Dubai, and higher demand for rooms as a result of falling oil prices.

The emirate is also seeing an increase in the development of mid-scale hotels for price-savvy travellers, and last year more than 1,000 new mid-market hotels opened in Dubai. Dubai is bursting with unique architecture and ultra-luxurious hotels, including the Burj al Arab, Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Palazzo Versace Dubai, and the Ritz-Carlton Dubai.

One of seven United Arab Emirates in the Middle East, Dubai is a vibrant destination with huge shopping malls, fun attractions and theme parks. Popular attractions for holidaymakers include the Dubai Marina, Dubai Mall, the soaring Burj Khalifa, Jumeirah Mosque, Jumeirah Beach, Dubai Creek, Dubai Snow Centre, the Wild Wadi Park, and the three iconic manmade Palm Islands in Dubai that stretch into the Persian Gulf off the golden sandy shoreline.

The modern city hosts an array of diverse annual events and festivals including the Dubai World Cup, Dubai International Jazz Festival, the UAE Desert Challenge, and Dubai Summer Surprises.The Dubai International Airport is the busiest airport in the world with passenger traffic reaching 78 million in 2015, a 10.7 per cent increase compared to the 70.4 million recorded in 2014.
