Although occupancy fell slightly due to supply growth (+4.6%), strong demand (+3.5%) helped hoteliers push room rates. According to the Philippines Department of Tourism, the country saw a 9.8% increase in international arrivals during the first five months of 2019. Additionally, STR analysts note that the Tourism Promotions Board Philippines picked Metro Manila as a Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions/Events (MICE) location, which will help boost performance levels.
