Qatar Tourism's Q3 2021 performance report of the tourism and hospitality sectors offers a detailed analysis and monitoring of the two sectors in the country. The report covers the period between July and September 2021.
In terms of hotel accommodation supply, the hospitality sector - excluding properties utilised for quarantine purpose - recorded a 14% growth in overall occupancy rates compared to the same period last year. The occupancy rate averaged 62% across Q3 2021, compared to 54% across the same period last year.
The report also shows a 13% growth in the average room rate (ARR) to QR406 and a 29% increase in revenue per available room (RevPAR) to QR286, compared to the same period last year.
Various factors have contributed to the recovery of the hospitality sector such as Shop Qatar 2021 promotions, all hotels registered with Qatar Tourism acquiring the 'Qatar Clean' certification as well as the reopening of borders in July.
It is most likely that the country will witness a gradual increase in the number of visitors as global travel resumes and as the country hosts popular events such as the FIFA Arab Cup 2021, the first-ever Formula One event in Qatar, the 11th Qatar International Food Festival and the Qatar Live 2021 festival, Qatar Tourism has said in a statement.
"Qatar has been successful in reducing the number of Covid-19 positive cases since the reopening of the country’s borders in July 2021, thanks to the increased number of vaccinated travellers. The country has successfully vaccinated more than 85% of its population as well," the statement adds.
