Preliminary data for December 2017 for Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, shows hotels in the market saw occupancy decline 8.4% to 45.1%, ADR dropped 4.1% to 694.85 Saudi Arabian riyals ($187.68) and RevPAR also fell 12.1% to 313.45 Saudi Arabian riyals ($84.66).

STR’s preliminary December 2017 data for hotels in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, indicates significant supply growth and negative performance.

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

  • Supply: +7.0%
  • Demand: -2.0%
  • Occupancy: -8.4% to 45.1%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): -4.1% to SAR694.85
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -12.1% to SAR313.45.

STR analysts note that while room demand has fallen, a jump in new supply continues to worsen occupancy levels and pressure rates. The absolute occupancy level would be the lowest for any December on record in Jeddah, while the ADR value would be the lowest for a December since 2010.
