Lodging Market Performance

Based on our research, the chart below represents the historical performance trend for luxury, upper upscale and upscale hotels in Mumbai from 2009-10 through to the Year To Date (YTD) 2012-13.

Over the three year period from 2009-10 through to 2011-12, Mumbai witnessed a marginal increase of 4% in Revenue per Available Room (RevPAR) as a result of a 1% increase in occupancy levels accompanied by a 2% growth in Average Daily Rate (ADR).

FY 2010-11 saw an increase of about 2.5% in occupancy and 5% in ADR after witnessing a steep decline from 2007-08 to 2009-10 due to global economic turmoil and the terrorist attacks at two prominent hotels in Mumbai. In 2010-11 occupancy levels averaged at 63% and ADR at around INR 9,500.

Hotels in South Mumbai have been the worst affected in terms of performance post terrorist strikes at Trident and Taj Mahal Hotels followed by a bomb blast at Zaveri Bazaar in 2011. Furthermore, the corporate movement from traditional CBD to Central and North Mumbai, due to availability of office stock at cheaper rentals, has also affected hotels in South Mumbai adversely.

Trading performance has seen a drop of 2% in RevPAR during the last 11 months, in comparison to 2011-12, in the light of a decline of 8% in ADR to INR 8,450. Occupancy on the other hand strengthened to 64% during YTD 2012-13 from 60% in the previous year. Overall, the Mumbai lodging market has seen fairly stable demand levels over the past four years, along with a decline in average rates, primarily due to recent regular supply additions in the form of Shangri-La, Sofitel and Ibis.
