Hotels in the Asia Pacific region experienced mixed results during the first six months of 2014 when reported in U.S. dollars, according to data compiled by STR Global.

Year-to-date June 2014, the region’s occupancy rose 0.9 percent to 66.9 percent, its average daily rate fell 3.1 percent to US$118.03, and its revenue per available room decreased 2.3 percent to US$78.92.

“On a constant currency basis in U.S. dollars1, the region has grown 1.3 percent in RevPAR, year-to-date June”, said Elizabeth Winkle, managing director of STR Global. “The only region to report declines in occupancy year to date is Southeastern Asia (-4.7 percent), primarily driven by Thailand. From a rate perspective, Southeastern Asia (+6.5 percent) and Australia and Oceania (+2.4 percent), are the only two sub-regions to report ADR growth on a constant currency basis.

“Asia Pacific is such a diverse region that there is a lot occurring from a political and/or economic perspective. While growth is muted, the region is still reporting increases in the three key performance industry metrics for the first six months of the year, when measured in U.S. dollars in constant currency”.

The region’s occupancy during June fell 1.4 percent to 66.4 percent; its ADR ended the month up 0.5 percent to US$112.44; and its RevPAR was down 0.9 percent to US$74.61.
