Award-winning international hotel chain, Tune Hotels, is all set to welcome its first guests in India with the opening of the 100-room Tune Hotel Ahmedabad this month. It is located at the newly developed 4D Square Mall in Motera area and is a stone’s throw away from Ahmedabad’s Sardar Patel cricket stadium.
Ahmedabad is a preferred destination for many hotel chains to start a new hotel and the budget hotels segment is booming. Mark Lankester, Group CEO of Tune Hotels said, “We look forward to offering travellers to Ahmedabad an unbeatable proposition that combines great savings with a great comfortable stay and in a location that is annexed to the newest Shopping Mall in Ahmedabad. Our business model is designed to take care of the needs of travellers in India looking for great comfort without paying exorbitant rates.”
By providing world-standard, high quality accommodation by focusing on key essentials but removing the generally underutilized facilities commonly found in other hotels such as swimming pools, business centres and gymnasiums, Tune Hotels keeps its operating costs low and savings are passed on to guests in the form of super low rates. In fact, to celebrate the opening of Tune Hotel Ahmedabad, online bookings are now accepted with attractive all-inclusive room charges that start from as low as Rs. 599.
The rooms at the hotel are designed spacious and chic and apart from the usual single rooms and double rooms, travellers can even opt for family rooms that can accommodate between four to six people in order to meet the needs of the Indian guests, especially in the wedding market.
There are two things really striking about this hotel that distinguishes it from other hotels in Ahmedabad. Firstly, guests have the option to choose and pay only for amenities that they require. For example, when it comes to AC, a pay-as-you-use air-conditioning system has been programmed into guest keycards. That means as a guest, you pay only for the amenities that you used and only for the period that you use. Secondly, Tune Hotels are also introducing new green ideas to hotel stay. Their mantra is to promote sustainable travel and therefore they discourage concepts like that of swimming pools, which waste a lot of water and encourage systems that improve energy efficiencies.
Post the launch of its first hotel in Ahmedabad, Tune hotels in planning 20 hotels across India in the next 3 years, 5 of which are like to be in Gujarat. The opening of Tune Hotel Ahmedabad comes as Asia’s largest low-cost carrier AirAsia plans to launch its domestic airline services in India in a new venture.
