Q2 RevPAR was highest in June at 6.9% YoY.
The meeting between US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has paid off for Singapore’s hotels. STR said that occupancy in the city reached 81%, higher than the 70% average in the Asia Pacific.
It was Singapore’s best second quarter in five years since 2013. Moreover, Singapore recorded its highest Q2 revenue per available room (RevPAR) at 6.9% YoY in June.
In fact, hotels in the country’s Orchard Road tourist belt reported three consecutive days with double-digit growth in revenue per available room between June 10 and June 12.
