LONDON HotStats, the global leader in monthly profitability data benchmarking for the hotel industry, has released findings of Middle East & North Africa hotel performance for 2018, in its "Profit Matters: MENA Annual Hotel Performance Tracker 2019."


The report tracked data for total MENA and individually highlighted performance for Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Cairo and Makkah. The report includes data on revenue and expense pertaining to the Rooms, Food & Beverage and Undistributed departments.

According to the published report, MENA hotels as a whole had a challenging 2018. Across the region, year-over-year GOPPAR decreased by 6.1%, negatively impacted by a 1.9% YOY decline in RevPAR and 2.5% fall in TRevPAR.

"While expenses were up moderately, the difficulty across MENA was in growing the top line, impeding operators' ability to flex cost," said Pablo Alonso, CEO of HotStats. "It's clear that the region's problems stemmed from growing revenue and not cost control."
