Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 18 October 2013

Tune Hotels has expanded its portfolio of hotels in the Philippines with the opening of the 140-room Tune Hotel Quezon City.

Located at Timog Avenue, the new hotel is the groups third hotel in Metro Manila.

The first Tune Hotel in the Philippines opened at Angeles City in Pampanga in February 2012, followed by Ermita and Makati in Metro Manila, Cebu City and Cagayan De Oro.

International economic and financial agencies including the World Bank and Asian Development Bank have revised the Philippines 2013 Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth upward to 7% from around 6% previously. This makes the Philippines the second fastest growing economy in Asia after China, and ahead of all its Southeast Asian neighbors. The strong growth is forecast to be sustained into coming years.

This is a really great year for the Philippines and its people. The economy is booming, there is a great mood amongst the people and there are plenty of new jobs being created. Tourism within and into the Philippines is expanding massively, with really successful government marketing campaigns and the recent lifting of the European flights will only help contribute further to the tourism economy, said Tune Hotels Group CEO, Mark Lankester. There is a noticeable mood in the air that it really is the time for the Philippines to shine.

The Philippines has set a target of 10 million international tourist arrivals by 2016, more than double the 4.3 million tourists it received in 2012. Arrivals for 2013 have been projected at 5.5 million, contributing some PHP 1.5 trillion or 6.7% to the GDP.

Tune Hotels provides international-class high-quality accommodation which focuses on key essentials but minus the generally underused facilities found in other hotels such as swimming pools, business centres and gymnasiums. By doing away with these costly and high-maintenance facilities, Tune Hotels is able to pass on savings to its guests in the form of lower room rates. Its pay-as-you-use concept lets travelers choose and pay only for amenities that they require to keep costs down, reduce waste and save energy.
