The average occupancy rate for hotels in the city rose by almost 20 percent between January and December last year, with the full year figure coming in at 85.2 percent, according to data recently released by the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO).

The average hotel occupancy rate across 2019 – the last full year before the Covid-19 pandemic decimated tourism – stood at 90.5 percent.

In 2023, July was the best performing month in terms of occupancy (93 percent), followed by December at 91.2 percent. That’s just 2.6 points behind December 2019’s pre-pandemic figure (and 49 points better than December 2022).
