Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel expects to be at par with the city-wide projected occupancy rate this summer as more countries are opening their borders for outside travel including Saudi Arabia, a key driver to the city’s steady occupancy.
“Based on the recent STR reports, the city is expected to record an average of 52% occupancy. We do expect an uplift of 10% towards our occupancy during this summer, which is attributed to the recent lifting of the Saudi travel ban,” says Colin A. Baker, Regional Director, Middle East, StayWell Holdings.
He adds: “We’re already seeing the intent to travel from Saudi visitors for both business and leisure purposes, with bookings coming in mostly last-minute. Seeing the trend from Saudi and other neighboring GCC countries, Dubai is priming up to be a ‘post-pandemic business and lifestyle hub with its ever-evolving offerings, experiences, and ventures as it propels towards the much-awaited Dubai Expo 2020 mega-event.”
The Kingdom’s citizens have been barred from travel since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Its borders reopened in July 2020, but citizens were still not allowed to travel. In January, authorities postponed the end of the travel ban for the public and announced a full reopening of entry points to May 17. Saudi citizens who have received two vaccination shots, or one shot at least two weeks before travel, those who have recovered from coronavirus within the last six months, and those who are under 18 years old are allowed to travel abroad.
“There will be a primary focus on family travel this summer as research supports that holiday-makers are more likely to travel, post-pandemic, with their loved ones,” points out Baker.
In response to this, Park Regis Kris Kin Dubai has curated a Suite Family Stay offer that allows a family of four to stay in large suites while enjoying the best of Dubai. The package comes with a complimentary buffet breakfast and 50% off on the special “Dubai Summer Surprise” food menu and up to four Dubai Park tickets at half the price.
The Suite Family Stay offer comes as the city celebrates Dubai Summer Surprises or DSS, one reason people travel to Dubai during the summer. The 6-week long shopping and entertainment extravaganza transforms the city into a sought-after shopping, travel, and experience hub with unbeatable retail deals, hotel staycation offers, and value-added experiences.
“We’re excited to welcome travelers this summer with an irresistible 50% off promotion on hotel stays, dining experiences, as well as attraction tickets. Guests can Stay, Savour, and Play throughout summer at Half the Price when staying with us, at the center of it all, where Dubai connects,” concludes Baker.
