INTERNATIONAL. The Middle East/Africa hotel development pipeline comprises 443 hotels totalling 121,218 rooms, according to the October 2010 STR Global Construction Pipeline Report released this week.

“The pipeline across the region has held steady compared to last month”, said Elizabeth Randall, managing director of STR Global.

“However, we see less hotels in the ‘recently opened’ phase because of the downturn last year and the slower revenue per available room recovery in the region. The United Arab Emirates, driven primarily by Abu Dhabi and Dubai, continued to dominate the number of projects in the total active pipeline among countries in the region”.

Among the Chain Scale segments, the Upper Upscale segment accounted for the largest portion of the total active pipeline with 28.7% and 34,805 rooms. Three other segments each made up more than 10% of rooms in the total active pipeline: the Unaffiliated segment (25.2% with 30,605 rooms); the Luxury segment (19.9% with 24,106 rooms); and the Upscale segment (13.8% with 16,679 rooms).

The Midscale without Food and Beverage segment accounted for the smallest portion of the total active pipeline with 0.7% and 799 rooms.
