  • Occupancy: +5.5% to 65.6%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): -5.5% to THB2,813.53
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -0.3% to THB1,846.25

STR analysts note that group demand (+40.3%) drove the lift in occupancy, while demand in the transient segment fell 1.8%. Hoteliers may have lowered rates due to the appreciation of the Baht and a more competitive marketplace with a 3.1% rise in room inventory from last October.

Tokyo

  • Occupancy: -2.8% to 87.9%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): +19.5% to JPY23,663.64
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +16.2% to JPY20,808.51

The decline in occupancy was due to a surge in new supply (+6.9%) outpacing demand (+4.0%). However, STR analysts note that performance was boosted by the Rugby World Cup 2019 (20 September through 2 November). Tokyo saw a double-digit increase in ADR (+46.7%) and a subsequent jump in RevPAR (+44.3%) during the knockout stage of the event (19 October through 2 November).
