The number of people staying in hotels in Abu Dhabi increased during the first quarter of the year.

The number of people choosing to take a holiday in Abu Dhabi appears to be on the increase as a rise in hotel occupancy was recorded for the first three months of the year.

New figures published by the Abu Dhabi Culture and Tourism Authority (ADCTA) stated there had been a 17 per cent increase when compared with the same period of 2011.

The number of guest nights rose by ten per cent year on year to reach a new total of 1.725 million.

Abu Dhabi currently has 130 hotels and hotel apartments available for travellers.

“We have more accommodation product in the market – which has increased choice and competitiveness to the traveller – an advantage we are now determined to leverage,” said Mubarak Al Muhairi, director-general of the ADCTA.

Some of the attractions that could draw more people to spend time in the emirate’s hotels in the coming months include the region’s popular golf courses and a concert by Madonna at the start of June.
