Hotels in the Asia/Pacific region experienced mixed results in the three key performance metrics for September 2012 when reported in U.S. dollars, according to data compiled by STR Global.
In year-over-year measurements, the Asia/Pacific region’s occupancy fell 1.1 percent to 67.5 percent, its average daily rate rose 3.7 percent to US$140.44 and its revenue per available room was up 2.5 percent to US$94.74.
“New Zealand hosted—and won—the Rugby World Cup last year, which took place 9 September to 23 October 2011, explaining the more than 30-percent decline in ADR and RevPAR results during September”, said Elizabeth Randall Winkle, managing director of STR Global. “Ignoring last year’s strong event-driving performance, RevPAR for the January to September period year to date is greater than the last peak in 2008. Year-to-September 2012 achieved a RevPAR of NZD93.68 compared to NZD92.30 for YTD 2008”.
