TUNE Hotels Celebrates 5th Anniversary with new design!

I’m seriously excited – Tune Hotel is opening a hotel in Scotland Edinburgh and another in one of my favourite cities – Melbourne!
Tune Hotel Scotland is due to open next month and Tune Hotel Melbourne in late 2013. From its humble beginnings of the brand’s first landmark hotel located in downtown Kuala Lumpur, Tune Hotels now has a total of 26 hotels operating across 5 countries in the Asia and the UK.

I was at its fifth anniversary celebrations recently and we were all taken for a tour of the new Tune Hotel design, starting with the very first Tune Hotel, the downtown Kuala Lumpur Tune Hotel.

We started our journey with the establishment of the first Tune branded hotel with our downtown Kuala Lumpur hotel back in May 2007.It’s fitting that with the new design and brand, which we’ve been working on for a number of months now, Tune Hotel Downtown Kuala Lumpur, is the first of the current portfolio to have itself refreshed and “made-over”.


So let’s do the tour shall we? 🙂

Top Asian celebrity, Nicholas Saputra, actor, model and VJ primarily known with his breakthrough movie role in “Ada Apa Dengan Cinta”, flew in from Indonesia especially to support the event. Being a savvy world traveler, Nicholas Saputra looks for great locations in accommodation and a comfortable sleep, synonymous with what Tune Hotels provides.


So what do you think? Vibrant colours and funkier designs are incorporated to draw the target crowd/travelers of 18 – 55 years old.
As a travel writer/blogger, I think I have stayed in almost 30 hotels in the last 3 years (even Tune Hotel Bintulu during their launch) and frankly, Tune Hotels’ no frills concept is perfect for those who seek safe, comfortable and budget friendly accommodations while they are on the go.

To further celebrate its fifth anniversary, Tune Hotels has tied up with another Malaysian champion celebrating its own fifth year. Gua, Malaysia’s premiere lifestyle and entertainment portal launched 5 years ago has also grown its fan base of loyal followers providing compelling online engagement to consumers from current entertainment news to lifestyle features.
