According to the Hotels Price Index by Hotels.com, room rates for Dubai and Abu Dhabi both saw double-digit growth in the first half of 2012 for UK travellers, Saudi Gazette has reported. The average room rate for UK-based customers booking hotels in Dubai rose 21% to £134 ($213), while Abu Dhabi rates were up 12% to £113, compared with a rise of 8.4% and a fall of 12%, respectively, in the emirates themselves, the report said. However, Muscat room rates fell 25%, from £238 in the first six months of 2011 to £179 for the same period this year. This still placed the Omani capital as the third most expensive destination for UK travellers.
