    International hotel group Tune Hotels has widened its presence in the Philippines with the opening of its first hotel in the southern island of Mindanao at Cagayan de Oro City.Welcoming its first guests on Friday July 19th 2013, the 159-room Tune Hotel Cagayan de Oro is Tune Hotels’ fifth property in the Philippines, after Angeles City, Ermita and Makati in Manila, and Cebu City. The hotel will have five family rooms, along with doubles, twins and accessible rooms.

    Tune Hotels Group CEO Mark Lankester said: “Tune Hotels is really proud to be in CDO, our fifth footprint in the Philippines. Thanks to the booming Philippine economy and its very healthy tourist arrivals, we are very pleased with our performance here since we opened our very first Philippine hotel at Angeles City, Pampanga more than two years ago. At least five more Tune Hotels are scheduled for opening in the Philippines over the next 18 months, including in Davao City in Mindanao and Quezon City in Manila later this year.”

    “The Philippines is a priority market for Tune Hotels. With the rise of budget travel packages from airlines and increase in business travel, there’s a high demand for value hotels that provide affordable, safe, clean, convenient and comfortable accommodations and that’s precisely what Tune Hotels is all about,” added Mark.

    Conveniently located on C. M. Recto Avenue along the highway to Iligan and Butuan, Tune Hotel CDO is in the heart of the Lapasan Central Business District and within walking distance of the Limketkai Center and Centrio Mall. The Mindanao University of Science and Technology campus is nearby, along with a number of food and shopping establishments.

    Cagayan de Oro is the 10th largest city in the Philippines and is the capital city of the province of Misamis Oriental in Mindanao. It is particularly famous for its whitewater rafting and kayaking adventures and also offers a host of other extreme water sport activities such as water tubing and river trekking. Historical tours and shopping are also part of the must-do list when in the city.

    Tune Hotel Cagayan de Oro is the 30th property to open in the Tune Hotels chain, with the 31st hotel set to open in Melbourne, Australia on the 1st November 2013.
