TAMANI Hotel Marina reports strong Business in early 2009
TAMANI Hotel Marina, the flagship hotel of TAMANI Hotels and Resorts, has reported a strong occupancy with 11 days of 100 percent performance in the first two months of 2009 re- asserting that Dubai remains to be powerful regional destination for business and leisure.
Despite recent International media to the contrary, there continues to be a robust level of commercial demand pouring into Dubai. For a period of seven days TAMANI Hotel Marina is securing occupancies of above 95 percent which reinforces that Dubai continues to be a leading centre for commerce.
Although there was some peaks and troughs to secure 70% occupancy in February and have a week of great demand indicates that the market is resilient and can bounce back.
With the backdrop of a global meltdown and commercial “Armageddon,” reported across global media channels, it is a refreshing surprise to see business hotels in Dubai reporting occupancy levels of above 90%, proving that beyond the gloom there continues to be pockets of significant demand.
In relation to the same week in February 2008, business demand is up by more than 15 percent across the competitive arena indicating that is very much business as usual in February in Dubai.
The reservations department has had to put in place additional staff to cope with the demand this week. “Dubai has not changed it’s DNA it is still an important commercial hub and a terrific place to visit and to do business commented Roddy Gordon VP Sales and Marketing for TAMANI Hotels and Resorts, “During a global recession there is always going to be fluctuations in the business activity as companies re-structure and re-define their priorities, but despite this, we all want to do business and Dubai is a strategic place to do business. This won’t change!.”
