Tune Hotels has expanded its portfolio of hotels in Malaysia with the opening of an hotel in the heritage city of Taiping in the northern state of Perak, Malaysia.

The 113-room Tune Hotel Taiping, which is part of the Taiping Centre Point development, is located within the heart of a new business growth area of the city.

To celebrate the opening, rooms at Tune Hotel Taiping are being made available at promotional online rates starting from RM68 all-in per night. Bookings at this rate can be made until 25 May 2014, for immediate stay periods up to 24 Jul 2014. Promotional rooms are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Walk-in guests get to enjoy opening rates from as low as RM88 all-in per night for a limited period.

Group CEO of Tune Hotels Mark Lankester said, “Tune Hotels is delighted to be here in Taiping, underscoring our presence and growth in the northern region of Peninsular Malaysia. This city has a lot of potential for tourism both business and leisure and the opening is yet another show of our commitment towards the rapidly developing Northern Corridor. Visitors to Taiping, be it for leisure or business, can rest assured of an enjoyable, comfortable and affordable stay with Tune Hotel Taiping.”

The Northern Corridor Economic Region (Koridor Utara) is an economic transformation project that focuses on accelerating growth and income levels with the objective of becoming a world-class economic region by the year 2025. The corridor is made up of the states of Perlis, Kedah, Penang and northern Perak, where Taiping is located. Tourism is one of its key thrust areas alongside agriculture, manufacturing and logistics.

Famed for its tin-mining legacy, Taiping is easily accessible via the North-South Expressway, with Penang about 110 kilometres to the north and Kuala Lumpur 260 kilometres down south. One of the earliest stations of the British administration in the 19th Century, Taiping boasts a sizeable concentration of heritage buildings as well as the Taiping Lake Gardens, the first public garden established during British rule where the famous centuries-old rain trees can be found.

Taiping is also home to Malaysia’s oldest hill resort, the Maxwell Hill and the country’s first zoo, the Taiping Zoo & Night Safari. Nature lovers can head on to the world-renowned Royal Belum Forest where they can get up close with the rich diversity of flora and fauna and interact with the local aborigines Orang Asli community.

Mark added, “With its history and nature attractions, Taiping has long been a family holiday and adventure destination and now with all the developments in and around Taiping, we have noted a growing stream of business and leisure visitors to Taiping and its surrounding areas. With Tune Hotel Taiping, we look forward to welcoming holidaymakers and business travellers alike to enjoy our international class accommodation at affordable rates. Apart from standard double and twin-sharing rooms we have also included family rooms to suit the needs of families and group travellers.”

Tune Hotel Taiping is part of the new Taiping Centre Point development, located right across from the Taiping Sentral Mall and Tesco hypermarket and within minutes from the Columbia Asia Hospital. Within the development and surroundings on offer are a host of dining, entertainment, shopping and lifestyle options. It is only two kilometres away from the Taiping railway station, the country’s oldest and one of the most iconic.
