26 FEBRUARY 2019 8:52 AM

In January, hotels in the Asia/Pacific region reported occupancy fell 1.3% to 65.9%, and a 0.6% ADR increase to $102.53 wasn't enough to overcome a 0.7% RevPAR decrease to $67.52.

LONDON—Hotels in the Asia Pacific region reported mixed results across the three key performance metrics during January 2019, according to data from STR.

U.S. dollar constant currency, January 2019 vs. January 2018

Asia Pacific

• Occupancy: -1.3% to 65.9%
• Average daily rate (ADR): +0.6% to US$102.53
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -0.7% to US$67.52

Local currency, January 2019 vs. January 2018


• Occupancy: +2.4% to 84.1%
• ADR: +1.6% to THB3,669.85
• RevPAR: +4.0% to THB3,084.65

The absolute occupancy and RevPAR levels were the highest for any January in STR’s Bangkok database. STR analysts note that strong demand (+4.8%) surpassed supply growth (+2.4%) due primarily to large demand increases in the Upper Upscale (+8.8%) and Upper Midscale (+10.2%) segments.

Hong Kong

• Occupancy: -0.6% to 90.1%
• ADR: +9.6% to CNY1,260.34
• RevPAR: +9.0% to CNY1,136.04

Supply (+1.8%) slightly outpaced demand growth (+1.2%), causing a slight decrease in occupancy. Regardless, the 90.1% absolute level in the metric was the second highest for any January on record in Hong Kong. According to STR analysts, the opening of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge and the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Rail Link in 2018 has likely helped ease travel and increase inbound arrivals from Mainland China.
