Visitors to Abu Dhabi 25 per cent higher in January-October

More than 2.8 million guests checked into hotels in Abu Dhabi in January-October, figures released today by the Tourism & Culture Authority Abu Dhabi (TCA Abu Dhabi) show.

This was 25 per cent higher than in the same period last year. Guest nights were 20 per cent higher than in January-October 2013.

Abu Dhabi hotel revenues in the first 10 months rose by 14 per cent.

“October performance helped significantly with this growth,” said HE Jasim Al Darmaki, Acting Director General, TCA Abu Dhabi. “During the month, guest arrivals were up 18 per cent year-on-year, guest nights rose 13 per cent while revenues lifted 4 per cent which should all be viewed against a background of 9 per cent more room availability in the market.”
