Solid Growth in the Shenzhen Hotel Industry
According to the latest data from Smith Travel Research, Shenzhen's overall hotel industry has performed well in July 2018. The overall hotel room rate stood at RMB 630 per night. There was an annual growth rate of 8.5% (6.4% in July 2017); the average income per room per night was at RMB 551, up 7.7% year-onyear (5% in July 2017). The occupancy rate has edged down slightly to 87.4% (88.1% in July 2017). Additionally, the average room rate of five-star hotels in Shenzhen has gained 8.7% year-on-year in the fourth quarter of last year, against just 6% and 4% annual growth in Guangzhou and Shanghai, respectively.
As far as five-star hotels are concerned, there are currently 92 such hotels in Shenzhen, mainly distributed in Futian District (26) and Luohu District (10), according to Ctrip. Because four other districts—nanshan (20), Yantian (3), Baoan (9) and Longgang (10)—contain a relatively small number of star-rated hotels, they form the edges of the star-rated hotel distribution in Shenzhen. Five-star hotels in Futian have an average room rate per night higher than that of Luohu. At present, the room rate per night in Futian ranges from RMB 577 to 2,386, with the average at RMB 1,078; the room rate per night in Luohu ranges from RMB 500 to 2,280, and the average price is close to RMB 979. Driven by high passenger traffic from both domestic and abroad, as well as the rapid development of the city, the demand for fivestar hotels in Shenzhen is increasing day by day, as is the value of hotel rooms. At the same time, with the gradual diversification of Shenzhen's development, the penetration rate of international and even domestic brand hotels in Shenzhen has also steadily increased. Thanks to the support of the Greater Bay Area Initiative, hotel investment prospects are bright and have received attention from investors and institutions. At the beginning of the year, Japan's wellknown retail brand MUJI successfully entered Shenzhen’s hotel market, opening a 79-room hotel in Futian. The rate per night ranged between RMB 950 and RMB 2,500. The market is closely watching its success and cross-selling retail products under the brand to boost revenue. Their success could be a leading indicator of more new hotels to be built by similar retail brands in the future. Additionally, the market has seen China’s first co-working industry sign a contract with a hotel for using the hotel’s meeting rooms, resulting in a more flexible use of hotel space and raising revenue. With the economy’s continued development, we can expect more cooperation of such enterprises in high-starred hotels within first-tier cities, including this issue’s focus— Shenzhen.
