Tune Hotel Ahmedabad is now open

KUALA LUMPUR:Tune Hotels' maiden Indian property in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, has opened its doors, with guests enjoying new hospitality standards from the award-winning international hotel chain.

The 100-room Tune Hotel Ahmedabad received its first group of guests yesterday, many of whom took advantage of its pre-opening promotional room rates that ranged from 599 Indian rupees (US$11).

“The Tune Hotel Ahmedabad is our first opportunity to present our services to India’s vibrant and vast hospitality market. Our excellent amenities combine with the top-class environment-friendly practices.

"We are encouraged by the response from our guests. It's heartening to note that the guests liked our eco-friendly character,” Tune Hotels' group chief executive officer, Mark Lankester, said in a statement on May 16.

Tune Hotel Ahmedabad, annexed to the newly developed 4D Square Mall in the city’s Motera area, is well-positioned on the main thoroughfare to the state capital of Gandhinagar and a stone’s throw away from Ahmedabad’s Sardar Patel cricket stadium.

“We welcome both business and leisure travellers. In order to serve families, an important segment in India, we have specially-designed large rooms that can accommodate four to six people," Lankester said.

Tune Hotel Ahmedabad is looking forward to serve both domestic travellers and visitors from abroad, especially members of the large non-resident Indian (NRI) community from Gujarat who have settled in countries like the United States, Britain and the Gulf states.

Tune Hotels plans to have five to six hotels in Gujarat as part of the company’s 20 planned hotels across India in the next three years. Apart from properties in major cities –- New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata,
Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai -– Tune Hotels is focusing on Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities along with hotels in the tourist triangle destinations of Agra, Jaipur and New Delhi.

By end-2013, Tune Hotels will have operating hotels in eight countries. Apart from India, Tune Hotels is set to open properties in Japan and Australia this year.

Future projects are also coming up in the Middle East, Europe and Africa, the statement said.
With the opening of Tune Hotel Ahmedabad, there are now 29 Tune Hotels in operations globally. The rest are 11 in Malaysia, five in the United Kingdom, four each in the Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia. - Bernama
