One of the leading sectors in Dubai is tourism and the number of tourists continues to grow significantly. This year alone, the emirate welcomed 9.20 million visitors for the first seven months of the year, according to DTCM figures, and is on track to exceed the 14.9 million recorded for 2016 and meet the annual target of 20 million visitors by 2020. Furthermore, according to the World Economic Forum’s Travel & Tourism Competiveness Report 2017 the UAE was ranked 29th globally and scored first place amongst Middle Eastern destinations.
“GCC visitors to Dubai are major contributors to Dubai’s tourism and hospitality market, and this includes Saudi Arabia as the second largest source market overall, with over 900,000 visitors from January to July 2017. Family tourism is high on the agenda of GCC nationals and these guests prefer serviced hotel apartments which combine the full amenities of a luxury hotel with the comforts and space of home. With the number of attractive destinations in Dubai and the booming leisure and shopping options for visitors to choose from, we expect to continue to see a surge in the number of visitors. We have more than 13,000 hospitality units in the pipeline to meet the increasing demand of this visitor segment,” added Al Lawati.
DAMAC Hotels & Resorts offers a “home away from home” for visitors, and provides investors with lucrative opportunities of owning a luxury hotel room or apartment in the centre of Dubai’s most desirable district.
