UAE hotel records robust growth as Dubai welcomes over 7m visitors

Al Bandar Rotana, a five-star hotel with a prime waterfront outlook, recorded robust occupancy growth during summer holidays and first half of the year.

“We are very proud of our hotel performance for the first half of the year, and we are positive that we can keep the momentum till the end of the year.

The impressive growth was from the momentum generated by the hugely successful Expo 2020, which brought immense attention to Dubai and the easing of travel restrictions worldwide. We are projecting the demand to increase during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, and as we welcome the festive season, we can see a healthy 2022 for the hospitality industry,” said Ayman Ashor, Cluster General Manager, Al Bandar Rotana and Arjaan by Rotana.

“Dubai has welcomed 7.1 million international overnight visitors up to June 2022, a 183 percent YoY increase” Ashor added.

He noted that the UAE hotels are gearing up to cash in on Qatar’s World Cup travel rush, adding that his hotel is receiving lots of booking enquiries and booking confirmations of groups from Latin America.

Occupancy rates in Dubai have averaged 74 percent throughout the first half of 2022, making the city the world leader for hotel occupancies, ahead of New York, London, and Paris, according to the recent tourism data revealed by Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism (DET).

Al Bandar Rotana has also launched a new campaign with very attractive rates for this summer by offering a  20 per cent off the lowest public room rate, with no restrictions on the length of stay, extra bed for free on all room categories for family stays, kids under 6 eat and drink for free and 50% off for children up to 12 years old.
