STR: Preliminary November 2016 data for Abu Dhabi

December 17, 2016 Hotel Trends No Comments Email Email

STR’s preliminary November 2016 data for Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, indicates significantly lower average daily rate in year-over-year comparisons.

Based on daily data from November, Abu Dhabi reported the following:

  • an increase in supply (+2.7%) and nearly flat demand (-0.4%);
  • a 3.1% decrease in occupancy to 81.0%;
  • an 11.1% decrease in ADR to AED660.14; and
  • a 13.8% decrease in revenue per available room (RevPAR) to AED534.97.

Despite the year-over-year decrease, the absolute ADR level would be the highest in Abu Dhabi since last November. Market performance for the month was helped by the Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix (25-27 November), with four straight days of ADR above AED1,000 and year-over-year increases of 101.5% and 143.7%, respectively, on 24-25 November.

STR analysts also note that supply growth slowed a bit compared with the +3.6% average in the market during the first 10 months of 2016.

STR will release actual November 2016 results later this month.
