STR: Preliminary March data for Jeddah hotels
STR: Preliminary March data for Jeddah hotels
12 APRIL 2019 9:03 AM

Jeddah's hotel demand outpaced supply in March, according to preliminary monthly data from STR.

LONDON—STR’s preliminary March 2019 data for Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, indicates a drop in room rates during low occupancy season.

Based on daily data from March, Jeddah reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:

• Supply: +7.7%
• Demand: +10.7%
• Occupancy: +2.8% to 48.8%
• Average daily rate (ADR): -17.1% to SAR563.89
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -14.8% to SAR275.21

The absolute ADR value was the lowest for any month in Jeddah since April 2008. As a result, RevPAR fell to its lowest March level since 2007. STR analysts note that while demand outpaced continued significant supply growth in Jeddah, a very competitive marketplace during low season led to hoteliers sacrificing room rate to maintain market share.

STR will release full March results later this month.
