We continue to track the tallest and most luxurious hotels - this time, in the Middle East. Dubai continues to dominate the field with her slate of eight tallest hotels among the top ten in the Middle East.
Dubai is the largest and most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), with a land area of 4,114 sq km and sees about 16 million tourists annually (targeting to hit 20 million tourists by 2020). While Dubai's hotel rooms were rated as the second most expensive in the world in 2014 (after Geneva), its average hotel occupancy held steady at a solid 86-88% rate. This certainly bodes good returns on investments for the tallest hotels of Dubai!
