Each of the three key performance metrics were up from April, but ADR remained the lowest for any May on record in the country. Occupancy and RevPAR were the lowest since the SARS outbreak in 2003.


  • Occupancy: -8.8% to 71.5%
  • ADR: -62.5% to SGD95.44
  • RevPAR: -65.8% to SGD68.20

Even though Singapore maintained the world’s highest occupancy level, its absolute ADR was the lowest for any month in the country’s database. As a result of lower room rates, the RevPAR level was the lowest for any May since 2003.
