Hotel revenues must be maintained

altApril 7- While the hotel industry seems to be recovering slowly across Middle East, further declines are expected in Dubai and Abu Dhabi markets’ RevPAR this year, said Paul Arnold, Principal and Head of Transaction Real Estate Advisory Services Group, Ernst & Young. "Those markets which were able to maintain their rate integrity in 2009 and have limited supply entering the market in 2010 will be the fastest to recover and achieve positive RevPAR growth in 2010. These markets are expected to include Beirut, Jeddah, Amman and Makkah," he added.
For hoteliers across the region, cost containment initiatives coupled with maintaining rate while still offering value for money will be the key focus in 2010, he added. Meanwhile, 2009 was a difficult year for the Middle East, which registered an average decline in RevPAR of about 15-20 per cent as compared to 2008.
