Arrivals this year to end-September were about 435 thousand and about 463 thousand for the same period in 2004.

There was, nevertheless, 65% growth in arrivals this year for the first 9 months compared to arrivals last year for the same period, indicating strong recovery from the tsunami slump.

Occupancy in the resorts was about 70% during September this year.
