Why you should invest in Dubai’s hotel market


With investor interest in Dubai real estate at an all-time high and tourism booming, there’s never been a better time to invest in Dubai’s fast-growing hotel sector

With Dubai’s real estate and tourism markets booming, there’s never been a better time to invest in both sectors.

Dubai’s real estate market continues to go from strength to strength, with transactional volumes in July proving the best for any month since January 2012, according to Dubai Land Department (DLD) data.

Meanwhile, Dubai’s tourism sector has recovered strongly from the Covid-19 pandemic, with the city welcoming 7.12 million international overnight visitors in the first half of 2022, marking an impressive rise of 282 per cent year on year (YoY), according to data published by Dubai Tourism.

The rise in visitation has also spelled good news for the city’s hotel market, which has reported strong gains in 2022.

According to a report published by hotel industry analyst STR, Dubai ranked first globally in terms of hotel occupancies in the first quarter of this year, achieving an average of 82%, outstripping the occupancy performance of other major international markets including London, Paris, and New York. The average revenue per available room (RevPAR) for the first quarter was also up 110% YoY to US$188.
