FOLLOWING the opening of Thailand’s first two Tune Hotels in Hat Yai last December and Pattaya in February (TTG Asia e-Daily, September 16, 2011), Tune Hotels is planning to launch its inaugural Bangkok property on October 1, 2012.
Located on Sukhumvit Road, Tune Hotel Asoke will be the chain’s third property in Thailand, and will offer 130 keys comprising double, twin-sharing and disabled-friendly rooms.
Mark Lankester, group CEO of Tune Hotels, said: “Tune Hotel Asoke is very important to us as it marks our presence in Bangkok. With thousands of home-grown and international hotel brands spread across the city, it’s everyone’s ambition to be part of Bangkok’s thriving tourism industry.”
Lankester added: “Our central location on Sukhumvit Road provides easy accessibility for shopping, entertainment and dining. We anticipate a great response from visitors to Bangkok, especially from Asia and Europe, where guests have become accustomed to our brand and concept.”
After the launch of the Bangkok property, Tune Hotels is targeting another opening on Patong Beach in Phuket by the end of the year.
