September 25, 2013 Statistics & Trends No Comments Email Email

Hotels in the Asia Pacific region experienced mixed results in the three key performance metrics during August 2013 when compared with August 2012 and reported in U.S. dollars, according to data compiled by STR Global.

The region’s occupancy ended the month with a 3.0-percent increase to 71.8 percent, its average daily rate dropped 5.3 percent to US$119.88, and its revenue per available room was down 2.5 percent to US$86.09.

“Occupancy was up for all sub regions in Asia Pacific during August  while ADR is down for all except for Southeastern Asia when measured in USD terms”, said Elizabeth Winkle, managing director of STR Global. “Southeastern Asia continues to be the only sub region to report positive results. Performance in markets in Malaysia and Indonesia was stronger in August due to the shift of Ramadan from July in 2012 to August in 2013. Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur reported double-digit occupancy and RevPAR increases for the month, when measured in USD”.
