Tune opens for business in Kuching

KUCHING: Kuching saw the opening of its very first budget hotel, the Tune - Waterfront Kuching, by Minister for Urban Development and Tourism, Michael Manyin here yesterday.

Its 135 suite rooms would be officially opened to the public on March 2.

The Tune Hotel which is located in the heart of Kuching, next to Waterfront Kuching and within close proximity of established shopping and entertainment outlets, aims to provide a “5-star sleeping experience at a 1-star price”, as its slogan has suggested.

The hotel employs a self-service online booking system, modeled after that of low-cost airlines, that encourages guests to book early to enjoy exceptionally low prices. Those interested may log on the website to check up the best deals available.

The Chief Executive Officer, Mark Lankester told the media at the opening ceremony that if anyone were to book and pay now, he or she would be able to get a RM0.05 per night deal.

“Our focused business model eliminates pricy yet underutilized full-service hotel facilities and concentrates on giving travellers just the accomodation essentials they need - comfortable 5-star beds and great showers in clean, secure locations.
