As per the figures published by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, the month witnessed a 16 percent growth in guests staying in 162 hotels and apartments in emirate in comparison to 2016, said a report in WAM.

The inauguration of Louvre Abu Dhabi on Saadiyat Island and the opening of the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix have caused the inflow in terms of hotel guests staying in November in emirates.

Furthermore, in accommodations across Abu Dhabi city, Al Ain Region and Al Dhafra Region, 4.3 million hotel guests had stayed in the initial eleven months of this year; the emirates saw a 9 percent growth on a year-on-year basis and aim to reach a record of around 4.9 million guests by the end of December.

To quote Saif Saeed Ghobash, director-general, Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, “While November and Q4 is traditionally a strong period for us, particularly with visitors from Europe, we are still highly encouraged by the sector’s performance during the month and the 16 per cent increase in hotel guests across all three regions to number 443,000 guests.”

“The opening of Louvre Abu Dhabi was a monumental event, not only for Abu Dhabi but also for the whole of the country and indeed the region, contributing enormously to our appeal as a ‘must visit’ destination. The museum attracted worldwide attention and instantly became a huge draw for domestic and international visitors, which we anticipate will continue for many years to come,” he said.
