 In year-on-year measurements, the Asia Pacific region's occupancy rates increased 1.8% to 66.2%, ADR increased 5.4% to US$136.87, and RevPAR was up 7.3% to US$90.66.

"The first six months of 2012 saw overall moderate growth in occupancy and ADR for most months," said Elizabeth Randall, managing director at STR Global. "The increases have helped to bring the region back on par with the first half performance in 2008, before the worldwide financial and economic downturn made its full impact felt. The region matched its 66% occupancy and was just US$0.38 below its 2008 first half ADR performance. As the region experienced a continuous increase in new hotel supply, growing with a 3.2% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between the first six months 2008 and 2012, demand has kept pace with a 3.1% CAGR."
