Hotel construction activity in the Middle East continues to gain momentum despite a slowdown in the hospitality industry across the region with Dubai and Makkah reported to be driving the construction activity in the Middle East, according to Khaleej Times.

Dubai has 20,451 rooms in 69 hotel projects under construction, while Makkah has 23,060 rooms in 14 hotel projects underway, according to STR’s December 2016 Pipeline Report.

Overall, the Middle East region has under contract 158,441 rooms in 555 projects, and industry experts expect overall projected occupancy rates to be maintained at a strong 77% until 2018. More info
