Asia Pacific

• Average daily rate (ADR): -0.7% to US$97.32
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -1.6% to US$67.25

Local currency, Q2 2019 vs. Q2 2018

Jakarta, Indonesia

• Occupancy: -6.7% to 51.4%
• ADR: +1.9% to IDR1,028,317.03
• RevPAR: -4.9% to IDR528,620.82

STR analysts note that the Indonesian general election period in April and May protests and riots had only a limited impact on quarterly performance. Due to the Ramadan calendar shift, May was the worst performing RevPAR month of the quarter (-17.3%), whereas June produced significant RevPAR growth (+25.3%).

Manila, Philippines

• Occupancy: -1.1% to 66.9%
• ADR: +3.9% to PHP5,247.14
• RevPAR: +2.8% to PHP3,510.40

Although occupancy fell slightly due to supply growth (+4.6%), strong demand (+3.5%) helped hoteliers push room rates. According to the Philippines Department of Tourism, the country saw a 9.8% increase in international arrivals during the first five months of 2019. Additionally, STR analysts note that the Tourism Promotions Board Philippines picked Metro Manila as a Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions/Events (MICE) location, which will help boost performance levels.
