The media launch included a slide presentation on the company’s rollout plans across Asia, strategic partners and construction progress of Tune’s flagship hotel property which is located at 316, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
“Much like no-frills air travel has revolutionized Asia’s skies, Tune Hotels.Com is poised to radically change the economy, limited service hotel industry in Asia. We intend to provide guests a five star sleeping experience at a one star price. We are investing heavily to ensure our guests have a superb stay with us. Our reservation system is fast and easy to use; in addition, by advance booking, our guests will enjoy incredible hotel deals. We have high-tech security in place. Our electronic key card door systems and beds with divans are also found in the world’s leading luxury hotels. We are able to deliver such a high quality product by selling our rooms on-line direct to the consumer without middlemen, cutting out unnecessary expenses like business centers and meeting rooms, and using space efficiently,” said Founder, Dato Tony Fernandes.
“As Asia’s 1st no frills hotel, it is important for us to showcase the mock-up room to the public and members of the media before we launch next month,” he added.
Commenting on the mock-up room, Dennis Melka, Director and co-Founder of Tune Hotels.Com, said: “The mock up room shows the quality furniture and fittings selected. Our commercial partners, such as KingKoil Corporation Sdn Bhd, Pensonic Holdings Berhad, Johnson Suisse (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd and Nippon Paint (M) Sdn Bhd, are corporations renowned for their high quality, lifestyle products and are market leaders in their respective industries. We are also proud to announce our retail partners in our hotel’s ground floor: Uncle John Kopitiam is known for its great kopitiam food and fair pricing. MyNews.Com a leading retail store chain in Malaysia, has an incredible product assortment that will allow our customers 24 hours convenience, a few steps from their rooms. Only Tune Hotels.Com is able to deliver its guests a popular kopitiam breakfast for RM 3.00 and an ability to choose from hundreds of snack items and popular magazines at 2am in the morning!”
He added that “The economy, limited service segment in Asia has often been characterized by messy rooms, stained sheets and carpeting and bad service. Safety in these hotels is also a major issue for travelers. Tune Hotels.Com will deliver safe, clean and high quality rooms at an incredible price to the traveling public. With Tune, everyone can sleep 5 star.”
