Geneva, 08 May 2014 - Summer may be synonymous with surf-and-sand but it is also a great time to breathe fresh alpine air or to explore a bustling city on a sunny day. ‘Tune in to summer’ offers accommodation at Kempinski hotels around the world of up to 30% off regular rates and gives the option of designing a summer vacation according to specific traveller profiles. Bookings are accepted from 15May for stays between 1 June and 15 September 2014 on kempinski.com.
After its successful launch in 2013, Kempinski will again use TripTuner® technology, an easy, plug-and-play tool to find the perfect holiday. Similar to a stereo equalizer, guests can indicate and fine-tune their preferences until the perfect match is found. “We are thrilled to collaborate with Kempinski once again on creating a personalised, visually rich approach for their summer promotion,” said TripTuner Founder and CEO Tedd Evers. “Kempinski is putting the traveller in control. Unlike traditional promotions, ‘Tune in to Summer’ will entice loyal clients and new guests alike to discover the best offers at Kempinski properties that match traveller preferences.”
With over 74 hotels globally and more opening this year, Kempinski has unique experience to offer from ‘glamping’ in Olare Mara to (re)discovering the rich Muscovite culture during the long summer nights. For the urban explorer, vibrant Shanghai and sparkling Berlin present equally appealing options. And for a more relaxed vacation, early morning meditation in Bodrum or a weeklong detox in Portoroz should be on the top of the list.
To make a booking, please visit www.kempinski.com or contact your travel agent.
