STR: Middle East hotel RevPAR recovery highest among global regions


The Middle East hotels reported revenue of 85.6%.


LONDON — The Middle East hotel industry reported revenue per available room (RevPAR) that was 85.6% of the pre-pandemic comparable, the highest among the global regions, according to year-end 2021 data from STR.

Year-end data displays the significant variance in recovery by region, stemming from different levels of pandemic restrictions around the world,” said Robin Rossmann, managing director at STR. “The Middle East has been a leader in both opening to international arrivals as well as hosting large events, such as Expo 2020, which has driven hotel performance in Dubai. On the other side of the spectrum, there are areas, such as Europe, where recovery has stalled due to the reimplementation of COVID restrictions. As we get further into 2022 and subsequent lockdowns phase out, we expect recovery to resume.
