Jumeirah benefits from tourism growth in Dubai

Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hospitality company and a member of Dubai Holding, has announced its performance in the first quarter of 2013 and its mid-term growth strategy.

During the first quarter of 2013, average occupancy in Jumeirah’s portfolio of hotels has increased by nine per cent globally, compared to the same period in 2012.

In the same period the average daily rate rose by nine per cent and the revenue per available room, an industry standard for measuring performance, rose by 22 per cent.

The performance data is based on hotels that had more than 18 months of operations.

Speaking at the Arabian Hotel Investment Conference in Dubai, Gerald Lawless, president, Jumeirah Group, said: “The full year of 2012 and the first four months of 2013 have been a tremendous success for Jumeirah.

“The Dubai hotels have truly benefitted from the continuing attraction of Dubai as a prime holiday and business destination.

“Our hotel in Abu Dhabi, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, has established itself as one of the top must-visit locations in the capital.

“Our two properties in the Maldives are building a strong reputation in that market; and our network of European properties, including London, Frankfurt, Mallorca, Rome and Istanbul are performing well.

“Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel in Shanghai has developed a loyal customer base and is going from strength to strength.”
