Dubai Hotel Profits Reach 35%

ImageDubai hotel profitability continues to lead the world 35% margins in 2009 according to researchers.  CBRE Hotels Vice President Armine Hamdi said their net margins are still excellent compared to other parts of the world.   CBRE is a hospitality consultancy and asset management firm.  Vice President Arnoud Andrieu said the average net profit in Europe now is between 18% and 20% for the five star segment. 

Mr. Andrieu said in Dubai,  “In 2008, the average margins for five star properties were 35% to 38%   This year they are likely to be between 32% and 37%.    Average occupancy rates in Dubai hotels have declined, although hotels in central business districts have occupancy rates at about 90%.  A survey carried out by Deloitte and STR Global showed occupancy levels in June dropped 12.9%.  Mr. Hamdi explained “Net profits have not taken such a big hit because when occupancy levels go down, other costs such as energy and amenities in rooms also go down.”
