Dubai has been ranked first for global hotel occupancy.
As a result of an increasing amount of people catching flights to Dubai and strong hospitality growth in the UAE, the emirate has the highest hotel occupancy in the world.
Dubai ranked first in global research on occupancy and average revenue per available room (RevPAR), according to reports from the Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM).
The state’s hotel occupancy rate jumped from 75.4 per cent to 56.2 per cent, while RevPAR increased to $232.7.
Analysis of the data from the STR Global report also revealed that the number of hotel rooms in Dubai now stands at 74,613 – a figure which is only going to increase in the coming years.
The next major development in the land of the seven-star hotel is Dubailand.
It is a 107 square-mile, six-world themepark, which is set to have hotels, a motor racing circuit and replicas of many wonders of the world including the Taj Mahal, Great Wall of China and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
