Dubai’s annual spa revenue is predicted to reach US$495 million in 2019, according to data released by Colliers International ahead of the 25th edition of Arabian Travel Market (ATM), which will take place at the DWTC from April 22 to 25, 2018.

The Spa & Wellness report produced by Colliers International for ATM states that Dubai’s spa inventory is expected to grow from 107 in 2017 to 157 in 2021 which is in close correlation with the emirates hotel pipeline.

Recent spa openings include The Spa at Palazzo Versace Dubai and The Bulgari Spa, which will contribute to projected annual spa revenues by 2019, according to Visit Dubai.

ATM senior exhibition director Simon Press said in the statement that the spa industry is dependent on various related trends. “Regionally, the spa sector is multi-faceted and sensitive to events and developments in many other sectors, including global health, beauty and wellness trends. In 2017 we saw focus increase across these areas and Dubai was quick to capitalise and innovate, with the debut of a number of luxury-branded hotel spas,” he added.
