Abu Dhabi hotels and hotel apartments record best ever May
Abu Dhabi's hotels recorded their best ever May last month with a significant increase in guest arrivals, average length of stay and revenues. During May, 232,650 visitors stayed at hotels and hotel apartments through business trips and Abu Dhabi holidays - an increase of 21 per cent compared to the same month last year.
The capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi, has recorded its best ever May, thanks to an increase in visitor arrivals and length of stay at hotels and hotel apartments.
During the month of May, 232,650 business travellers and tourists visited Abu Dhabi and stayed at the city's hotels and apartments, which is a 21 per cent increase on the same month last year.
According to the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority which compiles the monthly statistics, all 146 Abu Dhabi hotels recorded a rise in guest arrivals and the number of nights booked.
"This is an extremely heartening result as we look to achieve a greater traction to balance our supply-and demand equation," explained HE Mubarak Al Muhairi, the Director General of the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority.
"We are particularly encouraged by growth in the average-length-of-stay, which has moved up nine per cent to 3.08 nights. This suggests that our campaign to convince travellers of our ‘more to see and do' destination proposition is converting extended stays.
He added: "While there is still much to be done, the results suggest we are on the right track."
Occupancy rates of hotels in Abu Dhabi increased by seven per cent last month to 67 per cent and total revenues increased by 22 per cent to AED 439.5 million.
A vibrant modern city, Abu Dhabi boasts an array of attractions and sites for tourists to visit. In this beautiful emirate holidaymakers can explore the Khalifa Park and Sheikh Zayed Mosque; shop at the Marina Mall and the Abu Dhabi Mall, or talk a walk along the waterfront and relax on sandy beaches.
