Hotels enjoy high occupancy levels on the first weekend of Dubai Summer Surprises
Dubai Summer Surprises 2003 is already reflecting positively on the occupancy levels of some hotels in the city. Marketing Director of Grand Hyatt Dubai Roddy Gordon said, "the beginning of the season is already indicating a period of high occupancy for us. Our weekend occupancy levels were as high as 100 percent, with several families from the GCC. As a new hotel in Dubai, we are very encouraged by the response of the region's visitors."
Business Development Director, Le Meridien Dubai Shujaat Yar said, "The Dubai Summer Surprises period is historically established as one of the seasons for high occupancy. The first weekend we have recorded an occupancy of more than 92 percent. We are confident of maintaining high occupancy levels during the summer months, driven primarily by high demand from the GCC visitors during the Dubai Summer Surprises."
The Hyatt Regency recorded 98 percent starting off the weekend. Director of Sales, Golden Sands hotel apartments, Jagdish Pai said, "we have already reached occupancy levels of 90 percent plus. A large percentage of our guests are visiting families from the GCC, given that the school vacations have already started there. A fair amount of traffic is also coming in from the United Kingdom and the Asian subcontinent." — (menareport.com)
