Official Tourism-hotel Occupancy Numbers 2008?

Recommended Posts

To Alan at Phuketwan, or NBT, or anybody with official information, do we have any final numbers for tourism in Phuket 2008?

Hotel occupancy % overall on the island compared to 2007?

Nationalities that decreased or increased?

Any links or documented info appreciated.

Greetings Huggybear! Responding on Alan's behalf....

As far as we know TAT has not come out with the 08 occupancy rates yet, but we'll keep checking and post it online just as soon as they come out.

The figures available now are the flight numbers, which are very close to the 2007 figures, and these may be a more accurate representation of how things went in 08 than the occupancy rates anyway.

The Thai Hotels Association Southern Chapter has now released some projections for January and February.

Phuket Economic Outlook: No Reason to Smile

AS THE HIGH season draws to a close, figures based on forward bookings for resorts in Phuket and the region reflect a dismal outlook.

A Thai Hotels Association (Southern Chapter) survey of actual figures for December and projected figures for January and February demonstrates the flow-on effects of the global economic downturn and uncertainty about the future.

The survey, based on information from between 60 to 90 resorts, hotels and villas, is among the most reliable projections for early 2009.

Actual occupancy rates for December by all those accommodation units taking part in the survey averaged out at 54.48 percent.

While the THA figure excludes guesthouses, it compares with an occupancy rate of 65.82 for the whole of 2007, based on more comprehensive Tourism Authority of Thailand figures.

The TAT figures for all of 2008 are still being compiled. Tourist arrival figures for the first half of the year showed a year-on-year fall of 16.29 percent across the total number of international and Thai tourists.
