STR Reports Abu Dhabi and Dubai Hotels Exceeded 2019 Eid Al-Fitr Performance

The Abu Dhabi and Dubai hotel industries recorded occupancy and average daily rate (ADR) that exceeded the 2019 Eid al-Fitr comparables, according to preliminary data from STR.

When looking at the Eid date (2 May 2022) in the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi’s hotel occupancy reached 79.1%, which was 4.5% higher than 4 June 2019. Similarly, Dubai’s occupancy came in at 75.4%, which was 19.7% higher than the pre-pandemic comparable.

“This high performance is yet another sign of recovery and demand momentum for the Middle East,” said Philip Wooller, STR’s senior director, Middle East & Africa. “While these key markets saw higher occupancy levels, they also posted room rates that were in some cases nearly double what was reported in 2019. Dubai, for example, saw rates over AED700, which was up from AED400 in 2019. Leisure-oriented areas in the UAE such as Ajman, Fujairah, and Ras Al-Khaimah also experienced tremendous growth, with Ras Al-Khaimah posting room rates above AED1000 on 2 May.”

Ajman and Fujairah hotels surpassed 2019 occupancy levels, while Ras Al-Khaimah saw slightly lower occupancy levels than 2019. Despite the decline, Ras Al-Khaimah reported the highest ADR level among the aforementioned markets (AED1022.20) on 2 May, which was 47.7% better than the pre-pandemic comparable.
