STR: Asia/Pacific hotel performance for 2019
23 JANUARY 2020 8:55 AM

Hotels in the Asia/Pacific region reported occupancy dipped 1.3% to 69.3% in 2019 while ADR dropped 2% to $98.73 and RevPAR fell 3.2% to $68.38.

SINGAPORE—Hotels in the Asia Pacific region reported negative results in the three key performance metrics during 2019, according to data from STR.

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

Asia Pacific

• Occupancy: -1.3% to 69.3%
• Average daily rate (ADR): -2.0% to US$98.73
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -3.2% to US$68.38

Local Currency, 2019 vs 2018

Sydney

• Occupancy: -1.9% to 82.5%
• Average daily rate (ADR): -3.0% to AUD220.50
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -4.8% to AUD181.81

Sydney performance had been trending downward for most of the year, largely due to supply growth (+2.0%) and overall flat demand. STR analysts note that the devastating bushfires in Australia created an added burden on performance late in the year, especially in the areas surrounding Sydney.

The worst drop in December RevPAR occurred in Sydney Drive Regional (-29.5%), a submarket within a two-hour-drive radius of Greater Sydney.

Delhi, India

• Occupancy: +4.9% to 73.0%
• ADR: +3.4% to INR6,581.95
• RevPAR: +8.5% to INR4,801.75

Delhi recorded its fifth consecutive year of RevPAR growth, and the absolute occupancy level was the market’s highest for any year since 2007. STR analysts point to a 7.1% jump in demand as the driver of that performance. November was the strongest month of the year for RevPAR growth due to the Diwali festival calendar shift from November in 2018 to October in 2019.
