Tune Hotels, the limited service hotel brand providing what it calls a “5-star sleeping experience at a 1-star price” has opened its latest hotel in Kuta, Bali.

 The 139-room Tune – Kuta, Bali, located on Off Jalan Pantai Kuta, 6 minutes walk from Kuta Beach and within the main shopping and dining areas near Kuta Square, is the Malaysian brand’s first international location.

Country CEO for Tune (Indonesia), Sendjaja Widjaja said, “It is encouraging to see the response for our Kuta hotel as we had a lot of walk-in guests even before the opening day asking about staying in the hotel but unfortunately we are fully booked.”

 Tune Hotels Regional Services Group CEO, Mark Lankester added, “The progress for our Tune – Double Six, Legian hotel is looking good and is on target to open on 15 December 2009 as planned.”

 The 170-room Tune – Double Six Legian, is located in Jalan Arjuna (Off Jalan Double Six), 3 minutes walk from Legian beach and close to the shopping, dining and clubbing areas of Jalan Legian and Jalan Double Six

Tune has launched a celebratory promotion offering room stays in 2010 starting from as low as RM0.10/night in its Malaysian hotels in Penang, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Kuala Lumpur and the KLIA-LCCT Airport and from Rp 2,010/night in its new hotels in Kuta and Legian in Bali, Indonesia.

To avail the promotion, travellers must book before 20 November 2009, for stay from 1 August to 31 October 2010. Terms and conditions apply.

Similar to low-cost carrier airlines, Tune employs a self-service online booking system that encourages guests to book as far in advance as possible to the best prices.

All Tune hotels feature space-efficient, streamlined rooms focusing on high-quality basics: 5-star beds and powerful hot showers. Though minimally priced, the strategically located hotels still provide daily housekeeping services, electronic keycard access into rooms, 24-hour CCTV and manned security, and no access into the main lobby without a keycard past midnight.

Through Tune’s pay-as-you-use system of add-ons for air-conditioning, laundered towels and other energy-consuming facilities and amenities, Tune aims to help guests conserve both their funds as well as the earth’s resources.

Optional air-conditioning is programmed into guest keycards via affordably priced ‘credit units’ of 12 hours and 24 hours. Ceiling fans are a standard feature in all Tune rooms for guests who prefer to consume even less power. Each room is only issued one keycard with power access to ensure that power in the room is not activated when the guest is out, hallway air-conditioners are set on a timer system so they turn on in alternate sequence to conserve energy and energy-efficient bulbs are used in the properties as much as possible. Tune also reduces water consumption and the flow of laundry effluents into the environment by allowing guests staying for more than one night to choose to have their bed linens changed on alternate days instead of daily.

Despite the challenging economic environment, Tune has not slowed down its aggressive regional expansion plans – 150 hotels throughout Asia in the next 3-5 years. After Kuta and Legian in Bali, Indonesia, more hotels will follow regionally as the brand expands via franchising and joint-venture partnerships in other parts of Indonesia, India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines and China.
