Tourism and hotel experts say that hotels in the UAE, Qatar and Oman are experiencing a high turnout from tourists, with the beginning of the winter season characterized by its mild weather.
Hotels in Dubai, Doha and some of the Sultanate’s cities have recorded high occupancy rates up to 90% since the beginning of this month and some of them have raised the “No Vacancy” sign.
The flights arriving to Dubai, Doha and Muscat are witnessing a high occupancy rate with the beginning of the tourist season.
Hotel occupancy rates have increased since the beginning of this month, especially in the UAE, with tourists arriving from Europe and Asia, according to the hotel expert Antoine SAYEGH, Chairman of Gloria Hotels & Resorts Group in the Gulf.
The occupancy rates at the Gloria hotels in Dubai and Abu Dhabi increased to 70% to 98% and some days up to 100%, which led them to organize waiting lists. The beginning of the school holiday in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the influx of Saudis for tourism in Dubai contributed to a high raise in the occupancy rates.
“The tourism sector in the Gulf countries is growing year after year and has become one of the most important sectors supporting the economy,” said the hotel expert Moutaz AL KHAYYAT.
“The great integration between governments and the private sector has led to the significant development of this sector, and thanks to this integration, the desert is a top destination for tourists when they think of visiting the Gulf, with the availability of services that facilitate tourism and safari in the desert areas”.
Mr. Moutaz AL KHAYYAT pointed out that the Gulf cities are competing to introduce new tourism products in order to increase their share of the tourism movement which is being registered in this sector, as well as the contribution of the real estate, commercial and industrial movement in marketing the countries in the region regarding the level of tourism.
