Jasem Al Darmaki, the Acting Director General of the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, explained:
"We are much encouraged by the August results, with hotel occupancy for the month achieving 70 per cent, which is up by 11 per cent on last year and this has to be judged alongside the fact that we have more hotels to fill this year than last."
There are ten additional hotels in the emirate this year, compared to 2013, bringing 2,495 more guest rooms to the tourism market.
The number of UK guest arrivals also increased in August by 36 per cent year-on-year, with 14,437 leisure and business travellers staying in the United Arab Emirate.

"Summer this year has seen a host of entertainment events in Abu Dhabi which, together with a very affordable room rate of AED352 could well have influenced the uplift.
"We are already planning for Abu Dhabi Summer Season 2015 with the aim of taking our product much earlier to market."
