New opened hotels in India averaged 45.9% occupancy: Report

Hotels that opened in 2015-16 in India  averaged 42.7 per cent and, new openings of 2016-17 averaged  45.9 per cent occupancy in their very first year, according to a report by HVS Global Hospitality Services. Similarly, while  first year ARRs were successively lower than their  preceding years from 2012-13 to 2014-15, the ARR for  hotels that opened in 2015-16 and 2016-17 have seen  an increase in comparison to their preceding year, the report said.
