Occupancy Levels of Abu Dhabi Hotels on the Rise
The number of tourists taking Abu Dhabi holidays is on the rise as new figures released by the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA) show that the city's hotels and apartments were occupied by 175,309 guests during February, 2011.
This year Abu Dhabi hotels are seeing a significant rise in occupancy levels according to new figures released by the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA).
The United Emirates capital city was recently named the World’s Leading Tourist Board and received 175,309 guests taking Abu Dhabi holidays at the emirate’s top class hotels and hotel apartments this February, This number showed a rise of 17 per cent in comparison to February 2010.
Travellers from the United Kingdom taking holidays in Abu Dhabi remained as the leading source market with 12,832 overnight stays during February, 2011; signalling a 29 per cent increase on 2010 figures.
During February, occupancy levels of Abu Dhabi hotels increased to 77 per cent (a 16 per cent increase on last year); total guest nights increased 29 per cent to a total of 524,594; and the length of stay increased by 10 per cent.
Russia entered Abu Dhabi’s top 20 source market for the first time with an 88 per cent increase in travellers from this giant country going on Abu Dhabi holidays.
Strategy & Policy Director of Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority, Lawrence Franklin, said: “These February figures put us on an early track towards achieving our 2011 target, and we can celebrate having achieved double-digit growth for the first two months of 2011 compared to the same period last year.
“The year-on-year February increase has primarily been driven by major events held in the emirate, including the IDEX international defence show, the Al Ain Aerobatic Show and Gourmet Abu Dhabi.”
“There is also some evidence of demand changing because of regional issues, with hotel guests from Saudi Arabia rising by 90% and a tailing-off in hotel guests from Qatar and Oman.”
He added: “Towards the end of this year, Abu Dhabi will have more beachfront accommodation, with the planned September opening of the Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel & Villas and Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, and then the November launch of The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal.”
