Average hotel occupancies expected to be more than 80% over the Eid break

As it gears up for Eid Al Adha festivities, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority today revealed the hotel occupancy rates forecast for the Eid break, which is expected to exceed 80% across hotels in the Emirate over the long weekend celebrations.

With its prime location, only 45 minutes away from Dubai International Airport, Ras Al Khaimah offers its visitors exceptional value for money packages during Eid Al Adha, as well as experiencing nature based activities and adrenaline packed adventures, including the world’s longest zipline, desert safaris, picnics with spectacular views at the Viewing Deck Park and sunset horseback riding in a protected desert wildlife area.

Haitham Mattar, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority said: “We expect to continue seeing a rise in the occupancy rates of the Emirate’s hotels during this long weekend, especially for those looking for exceptional value for money hotel stays, luxury indulgence, as well as experiential adventure attractions such as horse-riding and archery in the Wadi desert”.

“The world’s longest zipline, Jebel Jais Flight, is an all year round attraction on the UAE’s highest mountain which is ten degrees cooler than sea level. We have noted increased bookings each weekend throughout summer, and the zipline was booked at full capacity over the Eid El Fitr public holiday – attracting 250 pilots each day over the Eid weekend. We are already receiving a similar number of bookings during the Eid al Adha holiday and we predict we will be hosting up to 250 people per day during the Eid break” He added.

In the first half of 2018, Ras Al Khaimah saw a significant growth in its overall visitor numbers with a significant advancement in its adventure tourism offering, marking a 14% increase in international visitors.
