According to a Bloomberg report, the average Room Revenue per night – which is a key statistic used in the hotel industry – in Singapore has fallen to its lowest since 2010.

Compared to last year, the rate fell by 7.4% to US$132 ($179.40) per night.

This was largely due to an increase in supply of hotel rooms in recent times, with the situation expected to get worse. There are 2866 rooms expected to be added this year with two-thirds expected to be opened in the second half of 2016.
