Head on to our website and you’ll be on your way to your next foodie adventure!” added Anwar.

Anwar unveiled the ‘Taste the World’ holiday campaign during an event at Tune Hotel Downtown Kuala Lumpur, the hotel group’s very first property that opened in 2007. The hotel underwent a facelift last year and is now sporting Tune Hotels’ cool and cosy new room design and layout. Since June 2013, the hotel has added just over 100 more rooms to its inventory with the opening of its adjoining extension located on Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman in the city centre. Tune Hotel Downtown KL now offers 275 rooms comprising standard double, twin and single rooms.

“We want to show that with Tune Hotels, guests enjoy high quality accommodation despite paying attractive room rates. We offer international-standard accommodation with high quality beds, power showers, clean environments, 24-hour security and to top it all, central and strategic location with easy access to the many attractions around the city centre and this is the model that we adopt throughout our global network,” said Anwar.

Also present were Tune Hotels Country Manager for Malaysia, Kishore Suppiah and Manager of Tune Hotel Downtown Kuala Lumpur Shireen Jasin.

Tune Hotels has successfully pioneered the “pay-as-you-use” concept that has become hugely popular amongst smart travellers from across the world. Under the concept, guests only pay for room rates with the option of adding on other amenities like air-conditioning, towels and toiletries, in-room Wi-Fi and satellite TV service to keep costs down, reduce waste and save energy.

Tune Hotels provides international-class high-quality accommodation at central locations and focuses on key essentials but minus the generally underused facilities found in other hotels such as swimming pools, business centres and gymnasiums. By doing away with these costly and high-maintenance facilities, Tune Hotels is able to pass on savings to its guests in the form of super low room rates.

Tune Hotels is part of Tune Group, a lifestyle business conglomerate co-founded by Tan Sri Tony Fernandes and Dato’ Kamarudin Meranun, who are the Group CEO and Executive Chairman respectively of Asia’s largest low cost carrier AirAsia.
