According to a Colliers report, the UAE’s hospitality sector is flourishing post-pandemic.
Dubai remains a strong market, as it is one of few cities with such a rich hospitality offering. Indeed, the emirate witnessed a 197 percent increase in international overnight visitors y-o-y from January to May 2022, bringing the UAE’s total visitor count to 6.17 million, up from 2 million for the same period last year.
To date, the UAE boasts 116,800 branded keys, 2,466 of which were introduced by Dubai in the first half of 2022. An additional 1,300 keys are expected in the second half of the year, with Sharjah set to introduce 282 new keys, Ras Al Khaimah 696 and Fujairah 175.
