Tune Hotel klia2 replicates the brand’s new approach to guest experience. Its rejuvenation started in February 2017 with the introduction of new premium rooms and all-day dining restaurant, MAKAN. It was complemented by MINUM sports bar, a chic minimalist spa – REHAT, and a bodega style Grab & Go. To give the hotel a sense of place, artwork from Malaysian and regional artists, on loan from private collections, hang on its walls. All of this connects to a 24/7 open-air courtyard perfect for transit travelers frequenting the KLIA and klia2 Terminals. Specifically, for transit travelers, Tune Hotel klia2 has created various packages which include a VIP Fast Track Pass. Tune Hotel klia2 is a certified green building highlighting our commitment to sustainable building design and operations.

The experience at Tune Hotel klia2 has been elevated by introducing great design and guest experience to appeal to even the most discerning of global travelers.
