The global luxury hotel market size was valued at USD 140.28 billion in 2023 and is anticipated to grow from USD 154.32 billion in 2024 to USD 369.36 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.5% during the forecast period of 2024-2032.

Luxurious stays during family vacation time or offering over-the-top facilities for upper management executives during business tours have primarily supported the luxury hospitality industry. Hotels strive to showcase the highest quality of services and features, from interior designing and food offerings to extended types of services, such as spas, gyms, swimming pools, and laundry, among others, to attract guests.

The emergence of online accommodation booking services has further accelerated market proliferation. For instance, on 10th February 2021, Marriott International released another version of its mobile app, Marriott Bonvoy, with new features such as better booking options, enhanced personalized experiences, and customizations in earning and redeeming points. Therefore, the increased demand for luxury hotels’ premium services with improved booking facilities is anticipated to consolidate the luxury hotel market share.

On the contrary, the COVID-19 pandemic also impacted the luxury hotel market. Travel restrictions, lockdowns, and concerns about the virus led to a sharp decline in travel globally. Besides, business and leisure travelers canceled or postponed their trips, resulting in low occupancy rates and reduced revenue for luxury hotels. With fewer guests and decreased demand for accommodations, luxury hotels experienced significant revenue losses. Many hotels were forced on temporarily closing their doors or operating at a reduced capacity, leading to financial challenges and layoffs within the industry. Besides, as per the Expedia Annual Vacation Deprivation study, released on 3rd February 2021, 42% of survey respondents had to cancel one or more trips due to COVID-19 in 2020. However, as per the same survey, 36% of respondents stated planning regular vacations in 2021.

Luxury Hotel Market Trends

Adoption of Green Practices is the New Trend in Luxury Business

The ‘Five Star Alliance’ has listed several luxury eco-friendly hotels across the globe. The listed hotels include Banyan Tree Bintan (Indonesia), Four Seasons Vancouver (Canada), Hyatt at Olive 8 (the U.S.), Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok (Thailand), and The Oberoi Vanyavilas (India), and others. These hotels are listed based on several factors, including using locally available materials, recruiting a local labor force, and adopting sustainable business practices.

Therefore, hotel owners focus on offering services that do not harm the environment due to the shifting consumer preference toward natural living. For instance, in March 2023, The Hotel Sustainability Basics (Basics) verification scheme, launched by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), offers a framework for tourist accommodation providers globally. It comprises a set of criteria that all hotels should adopt to promote responsible and sustainable travel & tourism practices.

Luxury Hotel Market Growth Factors

Blooming Travel and Tourism Industry to Expand Market Size

The tourism industry has witnessed continued growth over the years globally, with an increased number of domestic as well as international tours. As per the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO)’s report on the COVID-19 impact assessment on international tourism, published in 2022, over 900 million tourists traveled globally in 2022, double that of tourists in 2021. In addition, as per the global consumer survey statistics revealed by World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) at the 22nd Global Summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in November 2022, among more than 26,000 consumers across 25 countries, 63% are planning a leisure trip in the new 12 months, 27% planning three or more trips during the period.

Besides, the increasing availability of lodging packages with deluxe rooms and high-end services has attracted many guests for extended stays, thereby boosting revenue generation. The increasing adoption of advanced technologies in offering various facilities, such as free Wi-Fi or smart bathrooms, in 5-star hotel rooms would attract guests. Therefore, the growing preference of sports teams as well as spectators for leisure & luxury travel-related activities has bolstered the demand for lavish hospitality places.

Increasing Number of High Net-Worth Individuals to Support Growth

Wealthy consumers primarily avail luxurious services, and therefore, the ever-growing wealthy populations across the globe are likely to promote market expansion. Besides, high net-worth individuals often seek exclusive and luxurious experiences when traveling. Luxury hotels cater to this demand by offering high-end amenities, personalized services, and exquisite accommodations that appeal to affluent travelers seeking opulence and sophistication. According to the data presented by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), in 2021, 1% of the U.S. population holds 40.5% of the overall nation’s wealth.

Besides, high-end hoteling businesses are on the rise owing to constant bookings from business executives at luxury airport hotels or luxury city hotels centrally located conveniently. For instance, 2L De Blend in Utrecht, Netherlands, received The World Luxury Hotel Awards under the LUXURY BUSINESS HOTEL category two times consecutively in 2020. Therefore, an increasing number of wealthy populations and a rising number of high-class business tours would provide an impetus to this market.


Emergence of Accommodation-Sharing Facilities at Lower Prices to Limit Luxury Hotel Services Demand

Higher prices of stay in higher star-rated hotels, coupled with the emergence of low-cost shared accommodation platforms such as Airbnb in low-income countries, are likely to hamper the market growth. Millennials and younger travelers, in particular, may prefer the flexibility and authenticity offered by accommodation-sharing platforms. They may value the opportunity to stay in local neighborhoods, interact with hosts, and experience destinations like a local, rather than opting for the luxury and amenities provided by traditional hotels. Additionally, the growing prevalence of budget and mid-scale hotels in several countries worldwide would further limit market expansion.

The growing trend of affordable luxury services will likely increase the footfall in upscale hotels, making it a dominant segment in the global market.

Power released in July 2020, the following rankings were given for hotel brands based on guest satisfaction level in their respective types, Luxury: The Luxury Collection, Upper-upscale: Wyndham Grand Hotels, and Upscale: Hyatt Houses.

Chain Segment to Hold Highest Share Backed by Greater Number of Branded Chain Hotels

The widely distributed presence of hotels in the chain category worldwide makes the chain hotel segment hold a major share of the global market. Hotels in the chain segment focus on expanding their reach to various parts of the globe, strengthening their presence in every region. For instance, in December 2022, Radisson Hotel Group, a luxury hospitality chain, expanded its presence by opening its first Radisson Blu Mosi-oa-Tunya Livingstone resort in Zambia, Africa. The Group plans to open 150 hotels in the region by the end of 2025.

Europe is expected to hold a considerable market share due to the significant European spending on travel & tourism-related services. According to the data presented by the European Union Department of Statistics (EU), nearly 56% of European residents made at least one personal tourism trip in 2021. In addition, 114 million nights were spent by international tourists in Spanish tourism accommodations in 2021. Therefore, the rising penetration of technically sound high-scale hotel chains to accommodate an increasing number of tourists in the region is likely to increase the room occupancy rate of European luxury hotels.

The growing upper-middle-class and middle-class populations in the Asia Pacific region with increasing living standards have significantly contributed to the market's growth. International hotel chains are therefore investing heavily in the region to expand their presence. For instance, in May 2021, Hilton Hotels & Resorts signed an agreement with four luxury hospitality businesses, Conrad Shanghai, Waldorf Astoria Shenzhen, Conrad Zhuhai, and Conrad Wuhan, to open more than 700 hotel rooms in China. Besides, an increasing foothold of domestic players, including The Oberoi, Shangri-La International Hotel Management, and Banyan Tree, would further support market growth.                                                                                                  

Rising governmental initiatives in South American countries to grow the tourism & hospitality sectors would positively impact the region’s market. In addition, improving standard of living and increasing number of higher income population groups in Chile and Peru is supporting the services revenues in the region.

The market in the Middle East and Africa is primarily driven by countries associated with GCC, owing to the presence of several millionaires and billionaires in these countries. According to the data presented by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (UNSCWA), in March 2022, 10% of the population held nearly 80% of the wealth in Saudi Arabia. From 2019 to 2022, Saudi Arabian millionaires' average wealth increased by 20%. Therefore, being major oil-exporting countries, GCC countries have a strong presence of a wealthy population, which is likely to propel the market in the region.
