Tune Hotels today opens its 12th hotel in Kota Bharu, completing its presence in all regions of the country – central, north, south, east and west.

Located next to the KB Mall in central Kota Bharu, the 173-room hotel is strategic for both tourists and business travellers as it is located within Kota Bharu’s shopping belt and food trail that are heavily infused with the rich Kelantanese culture.

The opening of Tune Hotels Kota Bharu comes barely 3 weeks after Tune Hotels Bintulu in Sarawak that opened its doors on 3 January 2011.

Mark Lankester (pic), Group CEO of Tune Hotels says: “Hot on the heels of Bintulu, we are opening Tune Hotels Kota Bharu in Kelantan today. Tune Hotels’ framework in our home country of Malaysia is now complete as we cover the central, northern, southern, eastern and western parts of the country and now that this is done we can rapidly move to fill in the spaces. The opening of Tune Hotels Kota Bharu is an acknowledgement of the ever increasing importance of Kota Bharu as a travel and tourist destination with vibrant commerce and business sectors.”

Meanwhile recently, effective 5 January 2011 the pioneering limited-service hotel chain has permanently eliminated the administration fee for room reservations across all of its hotels.

“The New Year comes with good news for our guests as Tune Hotels is removing the RM10.90 admin fee across our entire chain - for good. Guests now only pay for the room and opt for our special comfort package to enjoy greater savings. As we open more hotels we experience better economies of scale and become more cost efficient. We eventually found the admin fee no longer relevant and are delighted to be in a position to pass on the savings to our guests,” said Lankester.

Available exclusively online at www.tunehotels.com, Tune Hotels guests can now enjoy a bundle called the ‘Comfort Package’ that includes 12 energy-saving hours of air conditioning, towels and bathroom amenities for only RM15.90. That is a savings of 20% as compared to stand-alone services. Twelve hours of air conditioning costs RM13.62 while towels and bathroom amenities are charged RM5.30 per set.

“We always listen to our guests and strive to meet their needs and expectations whilst at the same maintain our limited-service model in order to give them better value for money. Tune Hotels Kota Bharu is yet a further hotel, after Danga Bay, Kota Damansara and Bintulu, that feature in-room widescreen LCD TV’s, something that our guests asked us to add as an optional extra under our limited service model and we are moving to install these group-wide,” Lankester said.

The opening of the Kota Bharu hotel brings Tune Hotels’ number of operating properties in Malaysia to 9 having recently opened their hotel in Bintulu on 3 January 2011. Tune Hotels’ existing hotels in Malaysia are located in Kuala Lumpur, KLIA-LCCT Airport, Kota Damansara, Penang, Johor Bahru, Kuching, Bintulu, Kota Kinabalu and Kota Bharu; Kuta and Legian in Bali, Indonesia and one in London, England.
