Compared to June 2019, occupancy was down 42.9% to 33.6% for Middle Eastern hotels. This is down from May where occupancy hit 36%. ADR was down 24.9% to US$97.31, up from May’s $87.84, while RevPAR last month was down 57.1% to $32.72, a marginal increase from $31.59 in May.

For Africa, occupancy plummeted by 76.8% in June this year, registering at 13.8%, this is down from the 14.2% seen in May. ADR didn’t suffer as much, dropping by 27.1% to $74.13, an increase from $70.09 in May. Finally, RevPAR fell by 83.1% to just $10.23, up from $9.97 in May.

Though June had some improvements for the region, STR said occupancy and RevPAR levels were at their lowest for any June on record.
