Hawaii hotels see drops in occupancy revenue in April

The average daily rate (ADR) for Hawaii hotels increased in April 2019, compared to the same month a year prior, but both occupancy and revenue per available room (RevPAR) declined.

Statewide RevPAR fell 1% to $215 and occupancy was down 3 percentage points to 78%, while ADR rose to $275, an increase of 2%, according to the Hawaii Hotel Performance Report published by the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA).

Overall, Hawaii hotel room revenues totaled $349 million in April, a 2% drop from April 2018, as there were 25,000 fewer room nights and roughly 61,000 fewer occupied room nights. 

Bucking the overall trend, Maui experienced a strong April, leading in RevPAR at $307, a 3% increase compared to April 2018, and boasting a 3% jump in ADR to $390. The Valley Isle’s strong numbers were led by the luxury resort area of Wailea which enjoyed 91% occupancy and an ADR of $601 in April. 

Kauai, Island of Hawaii, and Oahu hotels all reported drops in RevPAR for April. The ADR on Kauai remained flat, while the rates on Oahu and Hawaii Island ticked up by just more than 1%. All three of the counties experienced April declines in occupancy, with Kauai’s 6 percentage point drop to 72% the largest.
