One of Dubai’s main attractions is its wide range of hotels that match every budget, claims a travel expert.According to a senior official from Deloitte, the state offers travellers hotels rooms ranging from luxury to mid-market and budget in price.

Alex Kyriakidis, global managing director of tourism, hospitality and leisure at Deloitte, told Emirates 24/7, that 60 per cent of Dubai’s hotel rooms are at the high-end of the market and the remaining rooms appeal to holidaymakers looking to spend less on accommodation.

He explained this compared favourably to Abu Dhabi, where the luxury market accounts for 90 per cent of rooms.

Mr Kyriakidis explained that Dubai’s tourism industry also needs to work with regional airlines to boost the number of people taking flights to Dubai.

“The more the airline industry is in partnership with the hotel industry, the more opportunities are created for people to visit their destinations in the region,” added the Deloitte official.

Paul Griffiths, chief executive officer of Dubai Airports, recently estimated that Dubai International Airport is set to welcome more than 90 million passengers by 2020.
