Macao’s 119 hotels recorded 1.007 million guests in January and February, a year-on-year growth of 20.9 per cent, the Statistics and Census Bureau (DSEC) has announced.  

According to the DSEC, hotels’ average room occupancy rate rose 6.8 percentage points year-on-year to 46.2 per cent. Guests’ average length of stay increased by 0.1 night to 1.9 nights. 

However, the figures still contrast poorly with the same months in 2019, when occupancy rates were little short of 100 per cent. 

Last month, the number of guests increased 29.3 per cent year-on-year to 493,000. Mainlanders and staycationers accounted for 80.3 per cent and 13.7 per cent of all guests respectively, The Macau Post Daily reported. 

At the end of February, the number of available guestrooms stood at 39,000, a year-on-year growth of 8.1 per cent. Data on hotels designated for Covid-19 medical observation quarantine and self-health monitoring were excluded from the compilation, according to the DSEC.
