Dubai’s five-star hotels report 97% occupancy rate

Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) has released new figures showing its five-star beach hotels acheived an average 97% occupancy rate during the second week of August.

The figure is a seven percentage point increase on the previous week and comes as the destination reveals it received 3.9 million international visitors in the first six months of the year, a 5% increase on the first six months of 2008.

The DTCM said the visitor number growth was down to a number of promotional and marketing programmes including the Kids Go Free summer promotion which ends on September 20 and working closely with the trade.
