Tune Hotels has signed an agreement with developer Liew Yin Yin Group for the establishment of the Tune Hotel Ipoh.

The new hotel will be part of The Host commercial development on a site belonging to the Ipoh City Council.

 Located within the vicinity of the city centre, Tune Hotel Ipoh is currently 60% completed and is on track for the March 2012 opening.

Tune Hotel Ipoh will have 121 rooms including 84 doubles, 36 twins and 1 wheelchair-friendly room. As an added convenience especially for families with underaged children, there will be interconnecting rooms, a new feature introduced by Tune Hotels at the Ipoh property. The hotel will also house commercial retail outlets including an AirAsia Travel & Service Centre that will cater to the residents of Ipoh and the surrounding areas.

In lauding the development, Ipoh Mayor Dato Roshidi Hassan, said, This is such a momentous occasion for Perak as we welcome Tune Hotels to open its first hotel in the State. It will benefit the tourism industry not only in Ipoh but in Perak as a whole. The opening of Tune Hotel Ipoh in March 2012 cannot be more timely as we celebrate the Visit Perak Year next year. I sincerely hope the establishment of Tune Hotel will not only escalate the growth of tourism in the State but also help promote other relevant industries and businesses such as food and restaurants, travel and tours, handicraft, transportation and many others.

Including Ipoh, Tune Hotels would have opened eight new hotels from December 2011 up to the first quarter of 2012.

Tune Hotel Ipoh will be the chains 11th hotel in Malaysia with the others being Kuala Lumpur, Penang, KLIA-LCCT Airport, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Johor Bahru, Kota Damansara, Bintulu, Kota Bharu and Kulim.
