The “Neighbours in Tune” Community Beautification Project was launched on March 18 and ran over two days, in Tune Hotel across Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia in a unique community initiative undertaken by the hotel group.
In Thailand, a key development market for the rapidly expanding budget hotel brand, Tune Hotels in Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket and Hat Yai engaged in a raft of activities with local partners to make neighbourhoods look better, and neighbours feel better.
At Tune Hotel Patong, Phuket, the group was joined by Simon Cabaret Show and Kathu Chief District Officer, Mr Veera Kerdsirimongkol who headed to the famous beachfront, brooms in hand, to clean debris and garbage off the beach.
Tune Hotels in Thailand are owned and operated by Red Planet Hotels and Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing, Mark Armsden, said it was important to not only provide innovative new hotel options to leisure and business travellers but to be equally creative in the contribution made to the community.
“We are delighted to roll out 'Neighours in Tune' this week and it has been encouraging to not only join with local officials who have been tremendously supportive but with the local communities that turned out in force to help along with guests in our hotels also participating,” he said.
“We very much see ourselves as long term partners, fully committed to the communities in which we operate. This is just the beginning. We look forward to doing more in Tune's neighbourhoods and communities in the future.”
