New 4-star & 5-star hotels opening in Dubai in next 12 months

There are several Hotels (2,800 NEW rooms) that are scheduled to open from now to next November 2013, because Dubai is an amazing business and tourism spot. The Dubai Hotel market is the region's success story when it comes to developing a destination, with the city attracting demand from a wide range of segments, inclusive of leisure, corporate and MICE Travelers. Business demand is also increasing due to the improvement in better sentiment in the region.

Furthermore, the Arab Spring has been a great factor in the top hotel performance in 2011-2012 as traditional leisure destination in the Levant (Lebanon, Syria) and Egypt faced political and and social unrest during this period, forcing tourists to opt for safe destination like Dubai. Demand for GCC clients especially Saudi Arabia and Kuwait market is supporting this increase in the demand. These factors have contributed to a large RevPAR performance observed in most hotels.

The outlook for hotels in 2013 seems to be good, and despite new properties coming on board, I am convinced the market will still deliver double digits growth in RevPAR. Every year, in November, there are some hesitations about the future of the hotel market in Dubai, but 12 months later the market has outperformed. Be confident in your team and pricing structure, and deliver excellent service, and you will navigate through 2013 with ease.

    1. Fully agree with you, Dubai is a popular destination and had leading institutions such as Emirates Airlines, Dubai Tourism Commerce and Marketing (DTCM), major sports events (golf, horses, rugby, sailing, parachutes, tennis) that drive its popularity.
